TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -The Arizona Wildcats are in the NCAA tournament for the 25th straight year.
The Wildcats (19-13) extended the nation's longest active string of NCAA appearances on Sunday, slipping into the tournament as a No. 12 seed. Arizona will face fifth-seeded Utah (24-9) on Friday in Miami.
If the Wildcats win, they would face either fourth-seeded Wake Forest or 13th-seeded Cleveland State in the second round.
Arizona's streak began in 1985. The longest streak is North Carolina's run of 27 straight NCAA appearances from 1975-2001.
