  • To start: We talk about Ari's time at Arizona and then covering the Bucks, who face the Wildcats in the Sweet 16.
  • 2:00: The long history of Sean Miller and Thad Matta, and how they supposedly didn't realize their paths could potentially cross heading into the tournament.
  • 3:15: We talk how Aaron Craft could lock down Mark Lyons and who might defend Craft as well.
  • 5:00: Arizona could have a good shot at winning if they limit the players outside of Deshaun Thomas and Aaron Craft.
  • 5:30: The Thomas and Solomon Hill matchup could be just as interesting as the Craft-whomever matchup. How will that go?
  • 7:00: Is Deshaun Thomas like a big-man Mark Lyons (as far as shot selection is concerned)?
  • 9:30: How will OSU compete in the paint?
  • 10:10: Ohio State's need to get in transition, and how Arizona's turnover issues from earlier this season plays into it.
