Arizona Staying West As Two-Seed

Less than 24 hours after knocking off Oregon to claim the Pac-12 Conference Tournament Championship, head coach Sean Miller and his Arizona Wildcats are headed for an opening round matchup against North Dakota Thursday in the Salt Lake City as the second-seed in the West Region.

The ‘Cats, who improved to 30-4 with their win over the Ducks, would play the winner of Saint Mary’s-VCU in the round of 32 and potentially West top-seed Gonzaga in the Elite Eight.

The red-hot Wildcats are hoping their balanced, well-blended roster is the right mix to get Miller to his first Final Four, coincidentally just two hours from Tucson this year.
