*Arizona is 18-15 all time against Wyoming, last winning 94-84 in 1998. Cowboy center Josh Davis posted a double-double that game. Rick Anderson is the lone Wildcat to play in the game. Luke Walton was a redshirt freshman and watched from the bench.
*Arizona is now 33-19 all time in the NCAA Tournament. They are 1-1 in NCAA games at the Pit.
*With 14 points against Wyoming Jason Gardner will move into sole possession of 10th place in the all-time scoring list. He would pass Sean Rooks. He would need a phenomenal run in the tournament to pass Anthony Cook, who is currently 96 points ahead of him. That would mean he would need to average 19.2 points a game with the Wildcats advancing to the Championship game.
*Arizona has scored over 80 points in 20 of their 32 games this season. They are 16-4 in those games.
*UCSB's Mark Hull hit 8-of-10 three-pointers. It is the fourth best outside shooting performance in tournament history.
*Arizona won the battle of the boards, 42-28. They are 15-1 when outrebounding their opponents.
*Rick Anderson tied his career high in scoring with 19 points. He hit a trio of three-pointers, which also ties a career high.
*Anderson's 19 points allowed him to eclipse the 400 point mark for the season, making him the fourth member of the team to top the 400-point plateau. It is the second time (1999-2000) since 1987-99 that four players were close. Last year's squad had two (Michael Wright, Gilbert Arenas) but had three other players who were less than 16 points away from the mark.
*Arizona is the only team in the Albuquerque sub-regional without an international player on the roster. Altogether there were 19 foreign players at this venue. Davidson led the way with eight on its roster.
*Wyoming advances to the second round for the first time since 1987. They are 9-18 all time in NCAATournament play. They have also won 16 games in The Pit, second most to only New Mexico.
*The Cowboys' 12 blocked shots against Gonzaga are a season high.
*Wyoming made 13 straight field goals in the final 3:48 of the Gonzaga game.
*Josh Davis is third all-time in rebounding at Wyoming. With 11 more boards he'd surpass Fennis Dembo and move into second place.
*Wyoming head coach Steve McClain attended a Lute Olson camp as a high school player while Olson was at Iowa.
*McClain also coached former Wildcat power forward Ben Davis while he was at Hutchison (Kan.) Community College.
