The ASU men’s basketball team will continue its season after accepting an invite from the NIT.
ASU (17-15, 9-9 Pac-12) earned the No. 5 seed in the NIT and begins the tournament at No. 4-seed UCONN (20-14) on Wednesday at 4 p.m. (ESPN2).
UCONN lost in the finals of the AAC Tournament to SMU, while the Sun Devils were eliminated in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament.
If ASU were to advance, it would either host St. Francis Brooklyn (23-11) or travel to Richmond (19-13).
ASU coach Herb Sendek has now qualified for two NCAA tournaments and four NITs in nine seasons.
The full NIT bracket is here.
