The Sun Devils were college basketball's last remaining undefeated team, but finished 8-10 in a weaker-than-usual Pac-12 and were bounced in the opening round of the Pac-12 tournament. Ayton also scored the first seven points of the extra frame that put the game away.
Thanks to Parker Jackson-Cartwright's consistent defense fronting Holiday, the Bruins' leader never could get a clear lane to the basket. The Wildcats held the Buffaloes to an offensive rebounding percentage of 13.3 (below their season average of 29.8) and had a turnover percentage of 9.8 (better than their season average of 16.0).

Colorado (17-15) managed to hang with the Wildcats well into the second half despite playing a tough opening-round game the day before. And that 14-0 run is a great example of that.

There's a committee that's made up of smart people that will look at everything and if they feel like we're deserving, we'll be invited and we'll go.
