For this Morning Meltdown let’s take a look into the buzz surrounding the Sun Devils, including Heat Waved’s PAC 12 rankings and the re-signing of head basketball coaches.
"“Top to bottom the PAC-12 is solid and teams are starting to prove that during their non conference. While most of the conference beat-up on the Mountain West, other scored surprising wins on the road against quality opponents.There were some surprises with the way some team played offense as well. Some of the conferences high-powered offenses struggled out of the gate while elsewhere stars emerged to lead their teams to blow-out victories.As for the top-tier of the PAC-12, they all took care of business but the power rankings are destined to change next week as some teams have early conference match-ups that could determine the direction of their season.”"

Earlier this week, the Arizona Sun Devils basketball program re-signed men’s and women’s coaches,
"“The news comes prior to the Sun Devils 2014-15 season. The Arizona State Press are reporting Sendek’s current contract was set to expire in June 2016. The eighth-year head coach makes $1.2 million annually, and his latest extension, pending approval from the Arizona Board of Regents, would give him a raise in addition to that base salary.Sendek was the Pac 10 Coach Of The Year and has lead the Sun Devils to two NCAA tournament berths. One of which came last season which ended in a 87-85 loss in the second round on a buzzer-beating layup to the No. 7 seed Texas Longhorns. Sendek’s extension would run through the 2018-19 season. His current contract goes through 2016, with an annual salary of $1.2 million.”"
