Devil’s Country – ASU Sports Report

Are We In Yet?

Saturday’s victory over Oregon State has put the Devils right on the bubble to get into the NCAA Tournament.  It was a historic afternoon for the Beavers who finished of the Pac-10 regular season without a single conference win.  It was a career night for two different Devils, McMillen and Boateng both had career highs in points.  All in all, it was a must win and they got it done. 

Now turning ahead to the Pac-10 Tournament, ASU will face off against USC on Thursday.  Here is the rematch for all the Trojan whiners.  Last meeting the USC thugs hacked the Devils up and down the court then cried about the difference in the number of fouls called on each team.  I hope ASU goes into this game, that is basically a home game for the Trojans, with the same game plan of attacking the hoop and making the officials give us the calls. 

One win, according to ESPN, is all the Devils need to have their place locked up in the NCAA Tournament.  I’d like to think they are already in, but one more would give us 20 wins on the year and beef up our resume.  I’ve never been so jacked about March Madness as this year.

March Madness Awaits

According to Espn.com – Bracketology, currently the Devils are slotted as the 10 seed in the west facing off against BYU.  A second round match-up against Kansas awaits them next.  If the miracle on ice repeats itself, but with ASU and a basketball, they would then likely face off against the likes of Georgetown or Clemson.  Following two upsets, Cinderella, aka the Sun Devils, would have a rematch shot at UCLA.  Why stop there?  I might be dreaming by now, but the Final Four match-up would slot the Devils in a showdown with one of either Memphis, Texas, or Wisconsin, who headline the South region.  On to the championship I say…lets see…there is Duke, Tennessee, North Carolina and perhaps Xavier.  Wait a tick, didn’t we already handle them quite easily this year?

My point is that ASU is tested and primed to make a historic run.  Why not the Devils?  It all starts with a couple wins this weekend in Oregon to ensure not just a spot in the NCAA tournament, but a seed that elevates our chances of making the “Run heard ’round the world.” (or so I will call it)
