The Arizona Wildcats will be a bit of an underdog to get the Final Four, but it's well within their means to get back to the second weekend.

Arizona will play as a 6 seed in the South Region against the winner of the First Four game between Vanderbilt or Wichita State. If they win, the Wildcats face Miami (Florida) or Buffalo in the Round of 32.

The Wildcats went 25-8 on the season and 12-6 in the Pac-12. Arizona had one of those seasons where they were dominant at home but struggled on the road. Arizona lost one game at home to Pac-12 champion Oregon, but managed to win all the rest of their home contests. The struggles came on the road, where they went 4-5 in Pac-12 play. Arizona managed a fourth place finish in the conference but could not get back to the Pac-12 tournament final, where they fell again to Oregon in the semis. Arizona went 0-3 against Utah and Oregon, with their marquee wins coming against Cal, Gonzaga, Colorado, USC and Oregon State.
