Now would be a great time for the Wildcats to put their size to good use.

It’s 1986 all over again.
That was Lute Olson’s third season at Arizona and he won his first Pac-10 title only to receive just a 9-seed in the NCAA tournament. Second-place Washington was the only other team from the conference to get in and the Huskies were a 12.
We can’t even blame East Coast bias for the Pac-12’s low seeds this year. There are well-regarded teams out west but they happen to be in the West Coast Conference (#1 Gonzaga) and Mountain West (#3 New Mexico and #5 UNLV).
This Week in the Pac-12 (TWit-Pac) Marches on with the TV schedule (all times Arizona/Pacific) plus baseball down below.
