ASU to take on...ASU...in the NIT

The Arizona State Sun Devils have been named a #1 seed in the National Invitation Tournament and will take on the regular season champions of the SWAC, the Alabama State Hornets. Alabama State was bounced in the semifinals of the SWAC tournament this past Friday by Jackson State.

The Devils bracket also includes, as the #2 seed, the two-time defending NCAA champion Florida Gators. The winner of this game will take on the winner of the 4/5 game between Southern Illinois and Oklahoma State.

The game will take place in Tempe at 8:00 PM on Tuesday night and will be televised to a national audience on ESPN2.

Call out to Pitchfork Nation: Get your maroon and gold wearing behinds to Wells Fargo Arena and show the Selection Committee on what the NCAA Tournament missed out on...Well, yes. That's a given though. I also meant this though:

The problem with the game (aside from it being the wrong tourney, of course) is that it is going up against the already sold out, massively hyped up #1 vs. #2 ASU-au baseball game. There will probably be a ton of empty seats, simply because on a weeknight people aren't even going to head over to Wells Fargo after the baseball game is over. We got screwed all around on this one.
