TEMPE, Ariz. -- Junior college transfer Shaquielle McKissic scored a season-high 19 points, including 3 of 3 3-pointers, and Arizona State routed Grambling State 97-55 on Saturday.
Jordan Bachynski had 15 points and 14 rebounds for the Sun Devils (9-2). Jermaine Marshall added 16 points and Jahii Carson 14 as Arizona State coach Herb Sendek emptied his bench for much of the second half.
Grambling (0-4) was playing for the first time in 24 days. The Tigers' closest game so far was a 30-point loss to Missouri State.
Arizona State scored the final 18 points of the first half to lead 52-28 at the break.
The Tigers stayed with the Sun Devils for a bit. It was tied at 20-20 after Chandler Thomas' basket with 11:47 left in the half. The Sun Devils outscored Grambling 32-8 from there until halftime.
Marshall scored 14, including 3 of 4 3-pointers, and Carson 13 in the first 20 minutes. Bachynski had nine points and 14 rebounds in the first half. Shine had 11 first-half points.
Grambling State has yet to play a home game. The Tigers have lost to DePaul by 38, Marquette by 43 and Missouri State by 30 and now Arizona State by 42.
The Sun Devils, coming off a 78-56 win at DePaul, played the first of three-straight nonconference home games leading into the Pac-12 season. They don't play for another week, hosting Texas Tech next Saturday, then a week later are home against Cal-Irvine.
Grambling State finally gets to play a home game Monday night, against Central Baptist.
McKissic transferred from Edmonds, Wash. Community College and has just one year of eligibility.
The 42-point win matched the second-most one-sided victory in Sendek's eight seasons at Arizona State.
