Kianna Ibis scored 24 points, Courtney Ekmark added 16 and No. 22 Arizona State beat Colorado 73-59 on Sunday for its eighth straight win in the series.
Ibis was 10 of 17 from the field and the rest of Arizona State was 17 of 43 (39.5 percent). Charnea Johnson-Chapman grabbed 12 rebounds as the Sun Devils outrebounded Colorado 40-25 and Robbi Ryan had a career-high eight of the Sun Devils’ 21 assists.
Minnesota is 6-1 on the road since Week 5, tied for the best road record of any team in that time. However, it is just 6-16 all-time in postseason road games and hasn’t won a playoff road game since a 31-17 victory at Green Bay in 2004.
Keenum threw for 318 yards last week, the fourth most he has ever thrown for in a single game. It was also the third-most for a Vikings quarterback in the postseason. His ability to stretch a defense, matched with the Vikings’ growing array of talent at wide receiver makes them tough to defend.
The Eagles will counter with Alshon Jeffery and Jay Ajayi. Jeffery has caught seven touchdown passes against the Vikings in his career, and Ajayi has grasped the lead-back role in Philadelphia.

Vick worked hard to revamp his image since he served a 19-month prison sentence a decade ago by volunteering with children, whom he urges to make better choices than he did.
