The top two teams from each division will advance to the “Sweet 16” and will compete in a single elimination playoff. The final two teams that emerge from the playoffs will compete to become the national champion.

This will be ASU’s third year competing at the national championship. The team is led by Coach John Williams, assistant professor of biology in the ASU Department of Biological Sciences.
