Some say the ASU Sun Devils do not belong in the tournament. They start the opening round against the Texas Longhorns in the 7-10 matchup. It's not going to be an easy route to the Sweet 16, because if they beat Texas, they most likely face the Michigan Wolverines. Having an RPI of 44 and grabbing the No. 10 seed in the Midwest Regional, they could be a dangerous team aided by these five players.
Sometimes he can go into hero mode, but Carson can score almost as well as anyone in the country. He averages 19 points and five assists a game (leads team in both).
Leading the team in blocks and points, Bachynski is the long seven-footer that every coach dreams to have: hard-nosed on defense, soft touch around the rim and stays out of foul trouble.
Averaging 15 points a game, Marshall can sometimes get ahead of himself shooting too much. But when he’s on, he’s good, shooting over 40 percent from the floor.
Somehow the 6-foot-3 guard is second on the team in rebounds, making him an interesting player going into the tournament.
The Danish wing is the best three-point shooter on the team at an almost 43 percent clip. If he can shoot, he is effective, averaging just seven points a game. Gilling also loves to play defense which he prides his game on.
