Throwback Thursday: James Harden The Sun Devil

This is a photo of Oklahoma City Thunder star James Harden in his days at Arizona State.

Also in this photo is guard Josh Shipp, for those of you wondering.

This photo is from an Arizona State vs. UCLA basketball game on January 17th, 2009. #15 Arizona upset #7 UCLA 61-58, and the Sun Devil's star guard James Harden dropped 24 points.

UCLA lost once again to Arizona State later that year, on February 12th, this time 74-67. In that game, Harden put up a double-double, getting 15 points and 11 assists. Not to mention his measly 7 rebounds.

They went on to lose to Syracuse in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Harden, later that year, went on to become the 3rd pick in the NBA Draft by the Oklahoma City Thunder.
