In reality, Arizona and SMC will tip about 30 minutes after the conclusion of Gonzaga/Northwestern. The Wildcats also move up to the big boy network, CBS.

Arizona defeated North Dakota 100-82 Thursday night after SMC took down VCU 85-77, setting up this second round matchup of west coast teams. The only “upset” of the day in the West Region was 11-seed Xavier taking out 6-seed Maryland.
