TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Jahii Carson scored 23 points and Jordan Bachynski swatted Derrick Wilson's runner at the buzzer for his seventh block, helping Arizona State knock off No. 25 Marquette 79-77 on Monday night to remain undefeated.
The Sun Devils (6-0) led by 15 in the first half, but had to withstand a late rally by the Golden Eagles.
With Arizona State leading 78-77 Jermaine Marshall hit 1 of 2 free throws with 7 seconds left, giving Marquette (3-2) a final shot.
Wilson managed to get into the lane, but the 7-foot-2 Bachynski roamed across the lane to knock the ball away, then was swarmed by teammates as he lie on the floor.
Bachynski had 14 points and 11 rebounds, and Marshall had 23 points for Arizona State, off to its best start since opening the 1980-81 season with seven straight wins.
