Simon helps Arizona State snag win over Florida Atlantic

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Dymond Simon scored 19 points and Jill Noe
added 16 points and 11 rebounds to help Arizona State (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today, No. 11 AP) beat Florida Atlantic 96-60 Monday night.

The Sun Devils (3-0), who shot 52.4 percent from the floor, have
won 25 straight regular-season home games.

Noe hit 5-of-6 shots from the floor, including 2-of-3
three-point shots, and went 4-for-4 from the free throw line.

Brittany Bowe scored 18 points and Susan Beauzil and Andrea
Taylor each had 11 for the Owls (0-3), who have lost their first
three games by a combined 106 points.

Coming off a 67-49 rout of then-No. 18 New Mexico on Sunday,
Arizona State opened a 41-29 halftime lead behind 11 points from
Emily Westerberg, who finished with 18 and was named MVP of the
Veterans Day Classic tournament. It was a sloppy first half for
both teams, with Florida Atlantic committing 15 turnovers and ASU
12.

The Sun Devils put the game away with a 15-3 run to open the
second half.
