FREEPORT, Bahamas (AP) -- The 21st-ranked Arizona State women's basketball team is in the Bahamas tonight to face Hofstra in a first-round game of the Junkanoo Jam tournament.

The Sun Devils are 2-1 on the season and have been idle since losing to fourth-ranked Oklahoma last Friday night.

Last season, ASU were 0-8 against teams ranked in the final Associated Press top 15.

The Sun Devils last played in the Junkanoo Jam in 2003, losing to Kansas State and George Washington.

Hofstra takes a 1-2 record into tonight's game with losses to Iona and Boston College and a win over Manhattan College.

A victory over Hofstra could put ASU into a second-round matchup against Florida on Saturday.

The Gators are 4-1 heading into their first-round game against 2-0 Southern Illinois.
