Pendergraph: Devils can't take anything for granted

March 10, 2009

Although the Sun Devils appear headed to the NCAA tournament, senior forward Jeff Pendergraph says the team can't take anything for granted.

The No. 23 ASU men's hoops team, 22-8 and 11-7 in the Pac-10, will take on the University of Arizona Wildcats Thursday in the first round of the Pac-10 tournament.

He talked about the game at a session with the local media.

Pendergraph leads the nation in field goal percentage at 66.5 percent and was even better in Pac-10 play (67.3 percent).

Pendergraph, who earned his B.S. in Economics in December in just three and a half years now has a school-record 115 starts and is shooting .761 from the free throw line in his career (351-of-461) and 98-of-127 (.772) on the year. He has 1,511 points in 121 career games (12.5 points per game) and 910 career rebounds (7.5 per game).
