It may not be China but the Arizona State men's basketball is hitting the road for a second time in the new season.
This time the Sun Devils (2-1) are headed to the northeast where they will participate in the Air Force Reserve Tip-Off Classic Saturday and Sunday at the Mohegan Sun Resort in Uncasville, Conn.
First up is St. John's (4-1), a team the Sun Devils will be facing for a third straight season, at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday. The other bracket features defending NCAA champion Virginia (4-0) and U-Mass (5-0).
Having two major road trips with only a pair of home games in between is quite an undertaking but the Sun Devils aren't dwelling on the negative.
