Bracket projection: Arizona State

Bobby Hurley's first two years in Tempe produced losing records and no postseason. This season, the Arizona State Sun Devils went from a projected middling Pac-12 team to top five in the nation by Christmas thanks to a blistering offensive performance (91.8 points per game) and a 12-0 record out of the gate. Then came Pac-12 play and everything changed. Hurley's small-ball approach was exposed when the shots stopped dropping consistently. The Sun Devils went 8-10 in league play and just snuck into the field. Now that they are back to playing nonconference teams, can the Sun Devils flip the switch and become the early-season version of themselves again?
