After just barely getting the Sun Devils to the NCAA tournament with a First Four appearance last season, (Arizona State's first trip since 2014) Coach Bobby Hurley had to almost completely remake his rotation, including the incorporation of four new starters. What happened? Much of the same. Arizona State once again squeaked into the field, as the same inconsistencies plaguing last season's team were a problem in 2018-19. A win over Kansas was followed by a loss to Princeton. Beating Washington came one game after falling to Washington State. A season ago the Sun Devils lost their first tournament game. Can this version shake that up-and-down nature and put a run together?
