Arizona Wildcats will face Josh Pastner's Memphis Tigers


After it was announced that the Arizona Wildcats will face the Memphis Tigers in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, I checked into the Twitter-scape to find that there's a common theme to every Tucson media members' feed.

"Wow."

Sean Miller's Wildcats have a storyline of a match-up, scheduled to play former Arizona assistant coach and player Josh Pastner.

Pastner, who coached under Lute Olson, will face the No. 5 seed Wildcats in the West Regional in Tulsa, Okla. The Tigers slipped into the tournament with a Conference USA Tournament Title win, and clinched a No. 12 seed.
