Arizona State vs. Syracuse

Arizona State vs. Syracuse

Arizona State was once a top-five team in the nation and was the last undefeated team in the country. "We tough. Got a lot of guys that can score, so all around just a really good team 1 through 15".

When the Arizona State logo popped up on the tournament selection show, players celebrated by jumping into the swimming pool at Hurley's house.

Saturday's matchup with the Cowgirls represents the first time in program history that Syracuse has played Oklahoma State. "So, we took advantage of the weather and the lovely place that we live in to celebrate quickly and jump around, and then jump in the pool quick", said Hurley, who was the first one to jump in the pool.

The Syracuse University men's basketball team will play an NCAA First Four game today against Arizona State.

On average, ASU was outrebounded by nearly four boards per game during conference play.

The last two years, SportsLine's computer simulation correctly predicted nine out of 12 double-digit NCAA Tournament upsets in the first round with their computer algorithm. Although Syracuse was defeated, Oshae Brissett fought to keep his team in the game with 20 points, shooting 50% from the field (making 7 of 14 attempts). Arizona State, who led the Pac-12 and was 14th in Division I in scoring at 83.5 points per game, must do just that to have any hope of taking down the Orange. They want to get up and down the floor. This Sun Devils team enters the tournament hungry and excited about the opportunity to play. A reserve on the 2016 Final Four team, the 6-foot-5 Howard is averaging 15.0 points and 5.0 assists per game.

The first game on Wednesday night pits North Carolina Central, winners of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament, and Southwestern Athletic Conference Tournament champion Texas Southern, which comes in as the only First Four team with a losing record (15-19).




As a result, Arizona, which went 25-7 this season season, has found itself sitting pretty headed into the NCAA tournament.

On the season, Buffalo basketball averages 84.8 points, 39.0 rebounds and 16.9 assists per game.

"We all came together at the right time, we all made a decision that winning basketball games were more important than anything else", Texas Southern coach Mike Davis said. Honestly, going into it, I wasn't really sure, it could have gone either way.

Arizona State has the potential to light up the scoreboard just about any time out, led by a trio of senior guards who together are averaging nearly 48 points per game.

"They made a big impact on me", Martin said.

Joining them when Hurley arrived was Shannon Evans II, who helped Buffalo to a tournament bid the season before his transfer.
