Why Syracuse snuck into NCAA Tournament

"Being in a tournament, you get this fresh start".

Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim's legendary 2-3 zone may be exactly what is needed to stop Arizona State. Now they're an 11 seed.

They were 3-9 against tournament teams.

Entering this game, the Sun Devils averaged 14.2 assists per game, which is only eighth best in the Pac-12. In this photo, the Orange women played their home finale against Boston College on February 25 in a game that Syracuse won, 69-63. Still the team has found a way to keep on top. Arizona State scored more than 83 points per game, which ranked inside the Top 15 in the country.

Arizona State's season has been a tumultuous journey which ranged from being a potential bubble team in the preseason to being a probable No. 1 seed before finally sliding back to the bubble. Here we are on Tuesday night playing in the NIT.

On the season, Arizona basketball averages 80.9 points, 36.6 rebounds and 15.2 assists per game. Overall on the season they do very well in that category, but that's a crack in the armor. Arizona State also got into the field on the strength of its non-conference wins.

The 11-seed upset is a trendy pick. Texas Southern has been in the tournament four out of the last five years.

Swann spoke with reporters at the Galen Center prior to USC's first-round game of the National Invitational Tournament against UNC Asheville. But here the Orange are, and going up against an ice-cold Arizona State team, they've got the chance to prove they belong with a tournament victory. Don't be surprised if Marshall make alum Billy Crystal proud and advance in the tourney. I think Cuse win this one 59-50.

For the first time since 2014, Arizona State is heading to the NCAA Tournament. This should be a pretty close matchup, but all in all I like Arizona State's offense a little better so I'm going that way.

Every year, there are teams that are underrated and teams that are overrated.

Once this run is over, though, he will take over as the pilot of Guard U, relying on lessons learned under the elder statesmen of Wells Fargo Arena. This is Lofton's fifth college after starting out in junior college.

The teams, taking part in the annual tradition colloquially known as March Madness, will engage in all-out war for 40 minutes, with one side breathing a sigh of relief as the other weeps at a premature end of their season.

Texas Southern (15-19) beat top-seeded Arkansas-Pine Bluff 84-69 on Saturday in the Southwest Athletic Conference championship game and secured an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season.

Oklahoma started the season 14-2, scoring 93.6 per game in that span.
