SAN DIEGO (AP) - Arizona is facing a prolific 3-point shooting team to open the NCAA tournament for the second straight year.
This time, the Wildcats aren't being picked to be upset victims.
Arizona heard rumblings about being on the wrong end of a potential upset last year against Belmont and blew the Bruins right out of the bracket.
The Wildcats are hoping to do the same thing on Thursday against Weber State, a team that shoots 3-pointers rapid fire and is tied for 20th nationally by making 39 percent of them.
Arizona is bigger and more athletic, but will have to contend with Weber State's Davion Berry, the Big Sky's regular-season and tournament MVP who averages 19.1 points per game.
