The Arizona State Sun Devils basketball team still has a chance, albeit a very small chance, to punch its ticket to the Big Dance on Selection Sunday.
The Sun Devils (20-8, 9-6 Pac-12) are hoping for a wee bit of luck on this St. Patrick's Day. If they win their final three regular-season games on the road, there should be no need for luck.
Their resume is admirable but not impressive. The Devils notched only their seventh 20-win season in the past 25 years, the fourth in Herb Sendek's seven-year tenure as head coach.
The Sun Devils have only played seven games on the road this year with an early nonconference victory over Texas Tech but then split their road trips to Oregon, Washington and the Rocky Mountain schools.
They can't afford a split at the Los Angeles schools as they meet the UCLA Bruins Wednesday night at 11:30 p.m. EST in storied Pauley Pavilion.
Arizona State is 5-2 against the other top-six teams in the conference, and I will break down its tournament resume and hope for the best.
