"I noticed President Barack Obama picked Arizona to beat us", Massinburg said. "And yesterday's game wasn't a fluke or whatever you call it. I unfortunately had to take a picture with him, and it emphasized how really short I am", the 5-7 coach said.

OK, so how about "darlings?"

The Wildcats end their season at 27-8, and end the year as the only Pac-12 team without double-digit losses.

The Ramblers (29-5) play third-seeded Tennessee (26-8) in a South Region second-round game Saturday night in Dallas.

During the game, Ayton tried to demand the ball on the inside as he got double teamed. The nightmare for Emmert was an Arizona run to the championship in San Antonio, where he would have to present a trophy to Miller, who then would walk off the stage into FBI handcuffs and a black SUV headed to the federal courthouse. Like, Loyola-Chicago won one? He's making more yearly than the universities he oversees make off the conference's television deal. Getting students to games is one thing, but what family is taking kids to a 7:30 p.m. kickoff for a game that's going to last four hours?

The Crimson Tide gained its first NCAA Tournament win in a dozen years as Collin Sexton scored 21 of his team-high 24 points after halftime of an 86-83 squeaker against Virginia Tech. "So.appreciate that." On another note, MI was the most impressive Big Ten team on Thursday (handling Montana), sorry to say, coach Holtmann. He's going to think he's the best kid on the floor. Anyone who saw the Wildcats get outfought and outhustled in the second half, though, when there still was an opportunity to take back the game, could tell you Arizona did not work hard during the course of its 40 minutes.

"We feel like this is where we belong", Clark said.

While another 50 percent effort is unlikely - especially against a Kentucky defense that ranks No. 4 nationally defending the 3-pointer - if the Bulls can hit slightly more than their already impressive 37.6 season-long average, they'll be well-positioned to score another upset. "Well, we don't have that problem".

It's also going to come down to Kentucky matching Buffalo's intense passion as the Bulls will not be intimidated. That's exactly what Oats did by chastising Kentucky Coach John Calipari for his penchant for reminding everyone of the inexperience of his freshman-laden roster. He's a pretty dang good coach. And only two teams have even reached a national title game in either sport (Oregon football in 2010 and 2015). "It's a fact. It is what it is'". Gonzaga blew a 12-point, second-half lead and trailed 64-62 with 1:48 remaining before scoring the final six points to earn a meeting with Ohio State on Saturday. Only those who were in the team's practices would know whether this is true.

Oats relies mainly on juniors and seniors, which is nothing out of the ordinary for a mid-major such as his. For Oats, it's an easy play. The Wildcats went 0 for 6 from 3-point range, marking the first time since the 1988 Great Alaska Shootout that they had not made a 3, a span of 1,047 games.
