Alonzo Verge Jr. had 20 points and seven rebounds, and Remy Martin added 18 points and six assists to lead Arizona State to an 83-74 win over Washington State in a Pac-12 game Saturday in Tempe, Ariz.

The victory assures Arizona State (20-11, 11-7 Pac-12) of a third-place finish in the conference and a bye into the quarterfinal round Thursday in the Pac-12 tournament at Las Vegas.

Tony Miller had a career-high 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting with eight rebounds for Washington State. Isaac Bonton scored 17 points but was 5 of 25 from the field. Leading scorer CJ Elleby had only six points on 2-of-19 shooting. Bonton and Elleby combined to shoot 1 of 19 from 3-point range.

Washington State (15-16, 6-12) trailed 61-44 with 10:37 remaining in regulation before the Cougars went on a 21-4 run to tie the game at 65 with 3:36 left. Miller made the last nine points for Washington State in that stretch, including consecutive putbacks following offensive rebounds at the end.

Verge's 3-pointer with 3:26 remaining was Arizona State's first from beyond the arc since the first minute into the second half. The Sun Devils had missed nine straight 3-point attempts.

Rob Edwards made a 3-pointer with 1:35 left to give the Sun Devils a 73-68 lead.

After Bonton was fouled, he made two free throws to cut the lead to 73-70 with 1:19 remaining.

Verge then made a jump shot and Elleby turned the ball over. Romello White dunked the ball on an inbound pass after a foul and Arizona State's lead grew to 77-70 with 38 seconds left.

Arizona State turned an eight-point deficit in the first half to a 40-29 halftime lead.

The Sun Devils, who trailed 12-4 about five minutes into the game, later went on a 12-2 run to take a 40-26 lead with 44 seconds left in the first half.

Jervae Robinson's 3-pointer cut Arizona State's lead to 40-29 going into the half.

Martin led the Sun Devils with 10 points at halftime, and Edwards posted five rebounds and three assists.
