Arizona Pulls The Upset After Getting In 2009 NCAA Tournament

Arizona pulled the big upset in the first round of the NCAA Tournament after most thought they should not even be in it. The irony is that despite what people thought about them not deserving to be there many did pick them to upset Utah in their brackets. Well Arizona delivered to the folks taking a chance on the big upset as they defeated Utah 84-71. Nic Wise led the Arizona charge with 20 points in the second half and finished with 29 overall. Chase Budinger added 20 for Arizona and Jordan Hill had a double double with 17 points and 13 rebounds.

Arizona is a number 12 seed in the NCAA Tournament which is their lowest seed ever. The mighty Arizona program has fallen on rough times in the last three years with three coaches now in three years and overall consistency on the court. So now Arizona has a chance to get back to the program it used to be now that they are into the second round of March Madness to play #13 seed Cleveland State. For those of you have not realized it yet, that means that Arizona the team that wasn't supposed to get in period will now be favored in their next NCAA match-up.
