Arizona State has been named to the first of the six-team NCAA Tournament tournament.
The Beavers are the defending champions of the Pac-12 Conference after upsetting No. 4 UCLA, 70-61, on Wednesday night in Tempe.
Arizona State (13-2, 5-2 Pac-10) is coming off a 62-59 victory over No. 1 Michigan State on Saturday, the first game the Sun Devils won in the league.
The Beavers had a season-high six turnovers, including four against Michigan State, and led by as many as 30 in the second half.
They scored 22 first-half points in the first half and trailed by as much as 23 before taking a 54-43 lead into halftime.
The loss drops Arizona State to 11-1 overall and 15-3 in conference play.
The Redbirds have won three of four games and two of three.
The last time the Beavers fell to Arizona State was in the 2014 season opener, which Arizona State won 71-54.
Arizona’s schedule will open with games against Michigan, Oklahoma, Notre Dame and UCLA, and then the Redbirds return home to play BYU on Jan. 3 and at Oregon State on Jan 24.
The final two games on the Pac 12 slate are against Arizona State, Washington State and Utah.

The electric car boom is back on the agenda in Australia.
While the country is still recovering from the bushfires that ravaged parts of the country in late 2016, the industry is expected to grow as much as 50 per cent this year.
It is expected that about 70,000 EVs will be built this year, with many of them coming from the US.
The new generation of electric cars is expected in about two years time.
Electric car manufacturer EVC is set to launch an electric vehicle in Australia in 2018 Evolv, a subsidiary of German carmaker Volkswagen AG, will unveil an all-electric car in 2018.
The company will build a 1,500km range electric car for sale in Australia and will sell it to consumers for $20,000.
The company’s CEO, Andreas Pützler, has said the car will offer a better range than a petrol-electric hybrid, while charging times will be about four minutes.
Eco-conscious Australian consumers will be able to buy a range of electric vehicles including the Tesla Model S, the Chevrolet Bolt EV, the Nissan Leaf, the Volkswagen Golf, the Renault Zoe and the Mitsubishi Eclipse.
It is estimated that Australia will have over 60,000 electric vehicles by 2020, and by 2025, that number is expected grow to about 200,000 vehicles.
The country is expected, in addition to electric vehicles, to produce more than 20,000 hydrogen vehicles.
A range of EVs in Australia Electric vehicles, like the Tesla, are set to become increasingly common in Australia because of the boom in the industry.
EVs have been gaining popularity with the mass consumer in the country, with more than 1.1 million vehicles sold in Australia last year.
The demand for EVs is expected continue, and there is a growing interest in electric cars in the rest of the world.
China has more than 50,000 miles of roads with electric vehicles in operation.
China’s government, which is keen to see a greener future, has already made plans to electrify all roads in the nation, and plans to introduce electric vehicles on public roads in 2022.
Australia will also be the first nation in the world to allow electric cars on the roads.
By 2020, the Government of Australia is aiming to have over 4,000 million electric vehicles registered in Australia, with an aim of having all EVs on the road by 2020.
While there is still a lot of work to be done, the electric car industry is predicted to be a $8 billion industry by 2020 and growing at 50 per per cent per year.
