The Cats are going to the big dance for the 24th strait year. They will play West Virgina in the first round Thursday night at 640 Tucson time from Washington DC.
For those of who are big cat fans, Sunday night's selection show was like waiting to have a heart attack. The Cats, who are playing in the west bracket, were one of the last teams shown. That forced Arizona fans to wait almost 45 minutes into the 60 minute selection show until Arizona came on the board.
We also knew only one more Pac-10 team was getting in, was it going to be Arizona or Arizona State? I, for one, thought for sure that the Cats goose was cooked. I started texting friends looking for someone to calm me down. The rest of the ZonaDefenders I watched the show with told me it was going to be OK. I should have listened.
Well, the good news is Arizona is in. And Arizona State is out.
