Another week, another Pac-12 road split for the Arizona State men’s basketball team.

After losing to Colorado on Wednesday, the Sun Devils avoided a road sweep with a win on Saturday over Utah.

The split didn’t do much to affect ASU’s tournament chances, as the Sun Devils remained squarely on the bubble in most projections.

ASU was included in 74 of 109 brackets tracked by BracketMatrix.com as an average of a No. 11 seed.

This week, ASU is home to Stanford and California in its final two home games of the season.

The Sun Devils will only benefit from a sweep and can’t afford a loss to Cal, which would put them at three Quadrant 4 losses for the season.

With the help of BracketMatrix.com and the NCAA’s website, here’s a look at the NCAA Tournament résumé for ASU, and where the Sun Devils are being projected heading into their final homestand.
