Defense wins championships.After the first week of March Madness the Arizona Wildcats and Virginia Cavaliers were the two best teams that I saw on that end of the court.
Arizona put their foot on the throats of Gonzaga from the opening tip and never let up, winning 84-61 on Sunday night in San Diego
The Cats will play San Diego State in the round of 16 Thursday night at 7:17pm in Anaheim.
50/50 balls went the way of the Wildcats, they got hands in the passing lanes that made Gonzaga uncomfortable all night.
When a team shoots 49-percent from the floor and turns the ball over just five times, that team will very seldom lose. Arizona dominated the stat sheet and the game.
Five ‘Cats scored in double figures, but I thought Rondae Hollis-Jefferson set the tone in the first half with his spark off the bench. He finished with 18pts. 5 assists and 5 rebounds.
