NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-Arizona vs Saint Mary's Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Hey, did you know the Arizona Wildcats beat the Saint Mary’s Gaels to advance to the Sweet 16 on Saturday? If you didn’t, then how did you find this post? The result is all over Arizona Desert Swarm! This must be very confusing to you.

On the plus side, you now get to experience the win through the miracle of after-the-fact social media! Below are some of the tweets that most accurately captured the spirit of the Wildcats’ win.

Before the game, the advanced statistics really liked St. Mary’s.

...and the beginning of the game kind of validated the computers.

The St. Mary’s Twitter account’s got jokes.

Jock Landale, meanwhile, punished the Wildcats down low.

Things went very poorly for the first 15 minutes of the game.

Rawle Alkins returned, though, and things began to change.

Though the Wildcats trailed by one at the half, things were looking up.

Kadeem Allen stepped up in a big way early in the first half.

And Lauri Markkanen did the same.

Some calls went the Wildcats’ way.

But no matter how we got there, Arizona secured the win.

And now, we move on to the Musketeers.
