For the Arizona State basketball team, it has been a long 48 hours.

Coach Bobby Hurley and his team were eliminated from the Pac-12 Tournament with a loss to rival Arizona in thee seminal game. An upset in that one would have put the Sun Devils (22-12) into March Madness without a doubt but they’ve been hovering right at the cut line instead.

But ASU will indeed be part of the field. ASU will face Nevada (22-10) in a First Four game in Dayton, Ohio on Wednesday. The winner then advances to face TCU on Friday in Denver.

The matchup against Nevada sets ups quite a story line as ASU starters Warren Washington and Desmond Cambridge Jr. are both transfers from Nevada.
