Cats get no help, will be a three seed

The NCAA selection committee did the Wildcats no favor. The Cats not only line up in the Chicago Bracket, but they are a No. 3 seed with a very tough No. 13 seed.

Arizona gets a tough Utah State team in the first round and then have a potential match-up with Oklahoma State in the Sweet 16 and a virtual road game against Illinois in the Elite Eight.

Before that, they have to square off against Big West Tournament champions Utah State and a win would mean a second round match-up against the winner of LSU/Alabama-Birmingham.
