Preseason Bracketology: Arizona Wildcats projected as a No. 3 seed

Rick Scuteri-US PRESSWIRE

SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean has Sean Miller's Arizona Wildcats pegged as a three-seed in the West region.

Proving that it's never too early to start filling out NCAA brackets, SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean has released his Preseason Bracketology, and has the Arizona Wildcats penciled in as the No. 3 seed in the West region.

The Wildcats, who finished 23-12 in 2011-12, will rely on a balanced attack in their quest to return to the Final Four for the first time since 2001. They'll be led by senior forward Solomon Hill (12.9 points, 7.7 rebounds), and bolstered by graduate transfer point guard Mark Lyons, sophomore forward Angelo Chol, sophomore Nick Johnson and freshman phenom center Kaleb Tarczewski.

Expectations are high in Tucson, but rightfully so. This year's squad is arguably the strongest since the departure of Lute Olson.

The Wildcats will open regular season play against the Charleston Southern Buccaneers on Sunday, Nov. 11 at the McKale Center. Tipoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. PT and the game will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
