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.
