ANAHEIM, CA-The top-seeded Arizona Wildcats (32-4) flew back to southern California about 48 hours after their first trip west week. Sean Miller’s team arrived in Los Angeles Tuesday evening and will be the last of the four teams in the west regional semi-finals to hit the practice court this afternoon.

On paper you’d expect a competitive, low-scoring game between two of the best defensive teams in the country. SDSU is second in the nation in points allowed (56.6), while the ‘Cats are fifth at 58.3. This will be the second meeting this season between the two. Arizona prevailed back on November 14 69-60 in San Diego. It was the Aztecs only home loss.

Miller and select players will be addressing the media before their final full practice here in Anaheim. All of today’s practice sessions are open to the public.

Tip-off Thursday night against the fourth-seeded Aztecs (31-4) is set for right around 7:15 Arizona time. The winner will meet either Baylor or Wisconsin who play in the other regional semi-final Thursday afternoon.
