Arizona Wildcats March Madness Hopes Hinge On Victory Against Sun Devils

The Arizona Wildcats sit squarely on the bubble with just one regular season game remaining on the schedule. While the Arizona St. Sun Devils have struggled throughout the entire 2011-2012 season, nothing would be sweeter for Herb Sendeck and the players than to knock Arizona out of the NCAA Tournament with a win on Sunday. Needless to say, ASU will be giving the UA everything they've got this weekend.

For Arizona, most have the team projected as one of the final teams 'in' the tournament, although a loss tomorrow would absolutely destroy their chances for an at-large bid. The Sun Devils feature an RPI in the 200's and the defeat would likely drop the 'Cats out of the top-100. It would also kill any momentum the team had heading into the Pac-12 Tournament.

The UA-ASU basketball games are always intense and this year's game to close out the season will have bigger implications than usual. Expect a great atmosphere in Tempe this weekend.
