The Arizona State Sun Devils may catch a bit of a break in their NIT opener against UConn.

The game, which will be played in Connecticut, is set for 4 p.m. Arizona time Wednesday.

Boatright, a senior, averaged a team-best 17.4 points per game to go along with 4.1 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.4 steals.

The 6-foot guard shot 42.3 percent from the field but made 41.1 percent of his 3-point attempts for the Huskies this season.

He made just 1 of his 12 shots in the American Athletic Conference championship against Southern Methodist Sunday. Had the Huskies won, they would be in the NCAA Tournament and not the NIT.
