Location: Tempe, Arizona
Record: 24-9 (11-7)
Leading scorers: James Harden (20.8 ppg); Jeff Pendergraph (14.5 ppg)
What to know:
- Harden is a 76 percent free throw shooter who got to the line 250 this season. That's seventh most in the country. He will also share, as he's second on the team in assists.
- While they certainly got their dose of competition in the Pac-10, the Devils didn't really challenge out of conference. Their toughest early season game was a win over Baylor.
- They're out west, but this isn't showtime. Herb Sendek likes a half court game, with only 61.5 possessions per game. They really like to run their offense, as their the ninth most efficient team according to StatSheet.com
Projected performance: One and done. A second round match-up against Syracuse; Jonny Flynn will create havoc for the Devils backcourt.
