An all Pac-12 final?

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Arizona vs Wichita State Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Last year, Gregg Marshall and his Wichita State Shockers ended the Arizona Wildcats’ season in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

This year, he’s picking Arizona to go all the way.

Marshall, who was eliminated by Kentucky last weekend, appeared on CBS Sports Network prior to Thursday’s Sweet Sixteen games and gave his selections.

His National Championship game is an exclusive Pac-12 party, with Arizona taking on the UCLA Bruins. Marshall then does good by the Wildcats he crushed last year and takes them to win the title.

Arizona looks to try and prove Marshall right by taking on the Xavier Musketeers on Thursday night about 30 minutes after the Gonzaga/West Virginia game ends. It will be broadcast on TBS.
