NCAA tournament preview: No. 11 Arizona State

NCAA tournament preview: No. 11 Arizona State”

Syracuse's NCAA tournament fate was up in the air heading into Selection Sunday.

As for the rest of the Pac-12, Arizona and Arizona State were the only two other conference teams. Auburn (No. 4) and Clemson (No. 5) round out the region's top seeds.

Arizona State guard Tra Holder (0) points to a teammate after scoring during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game against Southern California Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018, in Tempe, Ariz. They have such notable wins against Maryland and Syracuse.

Villanova, Kansas, Xavier and Virginia earned the No. 1 seeds in the 68-team field.

"If you look at their wins, and again we look at the teams in the tournament, we look at the caliber of wins that a team has and they had a couple of outstanding wins early", NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Committee Chair Bruce Rasmussen said. "We know they stumbled down the stretch, and that certainly affected their seeding, but they had enough on their resume to get in".

The Bruins had such noteable wins against SEC Tournament victor Kentucky, a regular season win against Pac-12 Champion Arizona in Tucson and swept USC. Some questioned whether the Wildcats were legitimate after losing three straight games in the Bahamas.

The Trojans will host UNC-Asheville, the regular season Big South champions, in the first round of the NIT. The Bruins will take on another 11-seed as they will face St. Bonaventure on Tuesday night at 6:10 p.m. PT.
