After an eight-day break between games, Arizona State (2-0) showed no signs of rust early against the Rattlers, racing out to a 19-point lead.

Jordan Bachynski had 14 points, eight rebounds and blocked six shots for Arizona State. Carson added seven assists.
Florida A&M (0-3) got off to an awful start offensively and never fully recovered, unable to fight all the way back from the big hole.
