January's 22 spark Arizona State

LOS ANGELES -- Second-half comebacks are becoming a way of life for Arizona State.

The third-seeded Sun Devils overcame a horrendous start, and later rallied from a 14-point deficit in the final 11 minutes to beat sixth-seeded Louisville, 67-58, last night in the Greensboro Regional to reach the round of 16 for the second time in three years.

Briann January matched a career-high with 22 points and Emily Westerberg scored 12 for the Sun Devils, who won by outscoring the Cardinals, 31-8, down the stretch. They missed their first 15 shots, but went 15 of 29 in the second half to win going away.

Arizona State came back from 15 points down to beat 14th-seeded UC Riverside, 57-50, in the first round, outscoring the Highlanders, 19-2, to finish the game.

The 10th-ranked Sun Devils improved to 30-4.

Jazz Covington led Louisville (27-8) with 11 points and 12 rebounds.
