There’s been speculation for months that one day Arizona State could wind up in the Big 12 given the potentially shaky future of the Pac-12.

Their future interests are still best served in the Conference of Champions, which would also be well suited to see the Sun Devils’ athletics thrive once USC and UCLA leave for the Big Ten.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, Spencer McLaughlin is joined by ‘Locked on Sun Devils’ host Richie Bradshaw.

They discuss whether ASU is best served by staying in the Pac-12 or going to the Big 12 one day, and what it might take for the Sun Devils to become a larger athletics brand in the league.

ASU basketball was one of just four Pac-12 schools to advance to the NCAA Tournament in 2023, a contract year for HC Bobby Hurley.

His future, as well as that of ASU’s Men’s Basketball team, remains murky at best right now.
