While nothing is a given in the NCAA Tournament and the Wildcats will have to take care of business against Texas Southern on Thursday, there are some interesting second round possibilities.
The 7 seed, VCU, has been a tournament darling in recent years, upsetting their way to a Final Four in 2011. The 26-9 Rams would pose a challenge to the Cats, but the really juicy matchup would be with 10 seed Ohio State.
During Brandon Ashley, Kaleb Tarczewski, and Gabe York’s freshman season, the team won many thrilling games throughout the season. But in a Sweet 16 matchup with then 2 seed Ohio State, Arizona was knocked out on a buzzer beater in one of the tournament’s most exciting games.
Now, two years later, a lot has changed. Arizona is the 2 seed, and has aspirations far beyond the Sweet 16. Here’s a look at potential matchups with Ohio State and VCU, from our friends at numberFire.com.
