Arizona State vs. Syracuse - 3/14/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Watch: Syracuse Players Get Emotional After Learning They Made NCAA Tournament

The NCAA tournament always has underdogs who simultaneously make a deep run and break brackets. Missouri, with an RPI of No. 49 in 2014, was previously the highest-ranked major conference team not to have been selected.

Arizona State (-1½) over Syracuse: Neither team enters with any momentum. Now they're an 11 seed. The team had expected to be in the tournament and held a viewing party in a banquet room at the Galen Center. However, the Sun Devils can compete with the best as they've beaten two No. 1 seeds this season. "To be able to take this team to a tournament, to hopefully to be able to play more games every single night, it's going to mean a lot to me to get on the court and keep playing".

The Syracuse University women's basketball team earned the No. 8 seed in the Kansas City (Midwest) region of the NCAA Tournament. "We don't want to get too high on this". They want this to be a fast-paced game. And there's not one team that we played in non-conference that we was favored to win.

They feature a cast of blue-collar, experienced players, with a six-man rotation that features four juniors, one senior and one sophomore. It is clear that they are not the same team that they were in the first half of the season, and I don't think the committee should act like they are.

The Orange also have the challenge of proving they should be here. This is the Bulls' third trip to the NCAA Tournament in the past four years and second under head coach Nate Oats.

Corbyn condemns Salisbury attack
He said there was "a series of possibilities as to who may be responsible", including oligarchs, Mafia elements and other ex-Soviet states.

The 11-seed upset is a trendy pick.

The Wildcats' quest to snap the program's well-known 17 year Final Four drought begins at 6:40 p.m. local time Thursday in far-flung Boise.

On the other hand, Arizona State is not a good rebounding team. Don't be surprised if Marshall make alum Billy Crystal proud and advance in the tourney. After a short one-year absence from the Big Dance, the Orange and their stalwart defense is back. Clearly, no one on the selection committee watched any Pac-12 basketball after mid-December. The Sun Devils are 13-15 in their history in the tournament, but have never been to the NCAA Final Four. We're in a power conference.

New Mexico State is a great rebounding team with a 35 per cent offensive rebounding rate. Kentucky and Arizona won their respect conference tournaments and are playing some of the best basketball in the country. In that game, Syracuse forward Oshae Brissett put up 20 points.

Oklahoma started the season 14-2, scoring 93.6 per game in that span. The Cowboys beat the Sooners in the Big 12 tournament, but the Sooners had better overall wins, especially in the non-conference. Until that happens though, they have shown that they are the least deserving tournament team.
