TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Katie Hempen scored 11 points Tuesday, nine in the second half, and No. 11 Arizona State rode a second-half surge to a 60-36 win over Arizona.

With the score tied at 26, Arizona State (20-3, 9-2 Pacific-12 Conference) opened the second half with a 12-2 run and led 38-28, forcing an Arizona timeout, then ripped runs of 8-0 and 14-0 to lead by 26.

Deja Mann and Joy Burke scored eight apiece for the Sun Devils, who will face Arizona (4-18, 0-11) again on Sunday.

Adrianne Thomas put the Sun Devils on top with a layup, but Arizona took charge on a 7-0 run capped by a layup by Breanna Workman and led 18-8. ASU's Mann and Elisha Davis each hit treys in an 8-0 run that tied the score at 26 at halftime.

Kama Griffits led Arizona with 10 points and LaBrittney Jones grabbed nine rebounds.
