Jermaine Marshall averages 15.1 points and has made 45% of his three-point shots. But the Bruins have a sizable problem, 7-foot-2 center Jordan Bachynski, who averages 12.6 points, 9.4 rebounds and 4.8 blocks. Bachynski, who is from Canada, is part of Arizona State’s “foreign aid” trio. Forward Jonathan Gilling (Denmark) averages 6.9 points and guard Egor Koulechov (Russia) averages 5.3. That’s 25 points per game the Sun Devils have imported.
