Selection Surprise

Sun Devils Coach Charli Turner Thorne has ASU in a school record 6th straight NCAA Tournament.  The Sun Devils found out their post season fate on phone when the bracket was leaked.

TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- In a sign of the times, the Arizona State University women basketball team found out their postseason fate on a cell phone.

ESPNU accidentally released the NCAA Women's Tournament bracket early. ASU had planned to practice and watch the show starting at 4 p.m. local. Instead, they finished early and got a head start on their match up with Central Florida on Friday in Miami.

Sun Devils Coach Charli Turner Thorne seemed to take it all in stride.

"30 years doing this and this has never happened before," said the Sun Devils Coach. "It's all good. I hate sitting in that room and the anticipation."

This is the women's team sixth straight tournament appearance. A record for ASU. Their game will tip at 4 p.m. Arizona time on Friday. To see the full bracket click here.
