The Arizona Wildcats will head to Lincoln, Nebraska for the opening rounds of the NCAA Tournament, it was announced on Selection Sunday.

The Wildcats will face Missouri (23-7, 13-5 SEC) in the first round Friday at 3:30 p.m. MT and the winner will play Nebraska or Hofstra in the second round on Sunday.

Nebraska, the host school, is a No. 7 national seed and the defending national champions.

Arizona went 22-10 this year, including an 11-9 mark in the Pac-12. The Wildcats have won three straight heading into the postseason, as they draw closer to full strength after being ravaged by injuries all season.

This is their 29th NCAA Tournament appearance in program history. Arizona missed the tournament last season for the first time since 2012.

We will have a more in-depth breakdown of UA’s section later, but for now enjoy their reaction to making the tournament:
