After beating Xavier on Thursday night, Arizona will get its rematch from the Elite 8 last year when it lost to Wisconsin 64-63 in overtime. Here are a few things that will help the Wildcats overcome the Badgers and reach the Final Four this year.
Gonzaga faced the wildcard of the tournament tonight in UCLA. Unlike nine years ago when Gonzaga blew a second half lead to lose the game, the Bulldogs instead showed up tonight and played the basketball game that was meant to be played. I think we all knew Gonzaga wasn’t going to let the only double-digit seed left derail its Elite 8 birth. It wanted some revenge and ended the game with a 74-62 win.
