The Arizona Wildcats are climbing an uphill battle for sure, but beating the Colorado Buffaloes tonight will validate how much this team has improved under harsh circumstances.

Last time out, it was a solid battle between the Pac-12's two best defensive teams, but Arizona missed some impactful free throws down the stretch and Carlon Brown shot daggers into the Wildcats' hearts. This one could likely play out in a similar manner, all on ESPN at 7 p.m.

The only few teams Arizona will play that are ahead of them in the standings are this Buffs team and the Washington Huskies. UCLA is a game behind the Wildcats as well, and those three games will be the keys in where the Wildcats land by regular season's end.

Otherwise, the schedule looks to be in Arizona's favor. Will they keep up the momentum tonight or will CU spoil a ripe opportunity?
