TEMPE, Ariz. -- Trent Lockett scored 20 points and freshman Chanse Creekmur, in his first start, added a career-best 18 and short-handed Arizona State snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 71-69 victory over Washington State 71-69 on Saturday.
Klay Thompson, held out of the starting lineup for being late for the team bus, scored 24 of his 28 points in the second half for the Cougars (17-10, 7-8 Pac-10). After Creekmur made one of two free throws with 5.8 seconds left, Abe Lodwick's 3-pointer to win the game for Washington State bounced long off the rim.
Keala King scored 10 for Arizona State.
