Syracuse reached the NCAA tournament on Sunday as an 11-seed and will play No. 11 Arizona State in a play-in game on Wednesday.
The Orange, who finished the regular season 20-13 after losing in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, and Arizona State, which finished 20-11 after falling in the Pac-12 tournament, were both among the last four teams in.
They were placed in the Midwest Region, and the winner of Wednesday's game will face No. 6 TCU on Friday night.
No. 3 Michigan State and No. 14 Bucknell are on the other side of the region.
