Jermaine Marshall And Jahii Carson Will Be Dynamic Duo For Arizona State Sun Devils

Arizona State Sun Devils

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona State Sun Devils had a good chance to dance even without Jermaine Marshall joining, but him joining is huge for the team in the 2013-14 college basketball season. With that in mind, Marshall and Jahii Carson will be a dynamic duo for the Sun Devils.

Carson averaged 18.5 points per game, 3.7 rebounds per game and 5.1 assists per game this past season. His new teammate and fellow guard put up 15.3 points per game, 4.6 rebounds per game and 2.6 assists per game for Penn State.

As you can imagine, both can shoot the long ball and both can score the basketball at a high rate.

Carson will easily be one of the best point guards not just in the Pac-12, but the nation, if he can repeat his success from last season. If Marshall can put up 15+ points per game once again, him and Carson could easily be considered one of the best guard combos in the country.

Both of them have a lot of talent and both of them have showed that talent, especially in this past season.

Like usual, Arizona will headline the Pac-12 with UCLA and Colorado not too far behind. Teams like Oregon will compete for a title as well, but it is Arizona State that should have everyone’s attention. This team has a great shot at making the 2014 NCAA Tournament and it would honestly be a huge disappointment if it did not.

The Sun Devils were close to dancing this past season, but had to settle for the NIT after finishing the year with a 22-13 record overall and a record of 9-9 in the Pac-12.

No matter what happens with that whole NCAA tournament thing, Marshall and Carson will be a fun duo to watch all season long.

    Its going to be a lot more than the Carson and Marshall show, but with Jahii – the fastest player in NCAA D1 pushing the ball, its bound to be action packed. Arizona State has the deepest most talented team in over 30 years for 2013-2014. They have two other returning players that averaged around 10 ppg last year returning as seniors (Gilling and Bachynski), plus another 2 other transfers besides Marshall coming in who also averaged ~10ppg in the NCAA their past season of play: Richie Edwards and Sai Tummala.

    The PAC-12 is absolutely loaded this year. It will be no cakewalk for Arizona, and I expect at least 8 teams to be battling all season long for tops in the league: Washington, Colorado, Cal, ASU, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, and Arizona.
