TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Alonzo Verge scored 20 points, Remy Martin added 18 and Arizona State held off Washington State's late rally for an 83-74 victory.

The Sun Devils were sharp early, building a 17-point lead before Washington State fought back. 

The Sun Devils went back up seven and hit six straight free throws in the final 30 seconds to earn a coveted first-round bye at next week's Pac-12 tournament in Las Vegas. 

Tony Miller led the Cougars with 21 points.  Cougs had a rough night of shooting. They only hit 36.6% of their shots.  Starters CJ Elleby and Isaac Bonton shot a combined 7-44.
