The Wildcats went on the road and picked up a 71-57 win over Stanford on Thursday to improve to 16-3 on the season and 4-2 in the Pac-12. Since going on a two-game skid a few weeks ago, with losses to UCLA and USC on the road by a combined five points, Arizona has won three straight, all by double digits. The Wildcats have been pretty strong against the spread as well, covering in three straight while going 13-6 ATS overall.

According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Arizona is currently listed with 25/1 odds to win the NCAA Tournament in 2016. Kansas and North Carolina remain the favorites, as each have 7/1 odds.

Arizona has had a very balanced offense this season as seven players are averaging 8 points or more. Ryan Anderson has been the leader on the floor as he is putting up 15 points and 10 rebounds per game while Allonzo Trier is posting 14.8 points per contest. Arizona last won the NCAA Tournament in 1997 and last made the Final Four in 2001, but the Wildcats have reached the Elite Eight the last two seasons.
