Bulls draw No. 4 Arizona in NCAA Tournament

Syracuse is another team considered lucky to be here, finishing 10th in the ACC with a mediocre record of 23-10 overall.

While teams like USC and Louisville and Saint Mary's feel like they got snubbed and had to deal with the disappointment of missing out on the Big Dance, the Orange got to experience the joy of seeing its name pop up on the screen.

The team was gathered at Hurley's Valley home to watch the selection show - and as soon as the announcement was made, Hurley and his team celebrated with an impromptu pool party. Arizona State wants to play a game scoring in the 80s, Syracuse would rather see it n the 60s. "So, we took advantage of the weather and the handsome 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.

A First Four matchup of 11-seeds in the Midwest Region between Arizona State and Syracuse gives us a major-conference battle a day before the real fun starts. Katz worked at ESPN for 18 years as a college basketball reporter, host and anchor.

"Even though it was not looking promising an hour before, we still held out hope that our quality wins on the road and at neutral sites would pay off". They also finished the season poorly, going 1-3 in their last 4 regular season games. Arizona State was 12-0 entering Pac-12 play, then the wheels began to fall off.

In the earlier game on Wednesday, the No. 16 seed that will face No. 1 Xavier on Friday will be revealed as the Texas Southern Tigers clash with the North Carolina Central Eagles.

"Arizona State is a very good team", Boeheim said.

They feature a cast of blue-collar, experienced players, with a six-man rotation that features four juniors, one senior and one sophomore. He's going to be a huge part any success Arizona has in the NCAA Tournament in the coming days.

Meanwhile, Zach Lofton scores just under 20 points a game. Past year the Orange were left out of a chance at a national championship, leading them to lose in the second round of the NIT tournament.

Heading up the scoring for the Orange this season is Tyus Battle with 19.8 PPG, while Frank Howard has 15.0 PPG and 5.0 APG. But Syracuse plays the better defense, holding opponents to under 40 percent field-goal shooting on the season.

"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. The over/under betting line for total number of points scored is 142, 64.3% have picked the under. Honestly, going into it, I wasn't really sure, it could have gone either way. "It's not just like a point guard or a 2, but they play 3 and 4 guards at a time". Sometimes an FBI investigation can totally tear a team apart and send them in the wrong direction, but I believe it is sending this team in the complete opposite direction. "We felt we were deserving of a place in the tournament, but others who actually make the decision didn't feel the same".

Buffalo earned an automatic bid to the tournament by defeating Toledo in the Mid-American Conference Tournament title game on Saturday in Cleveland.
