Arizona in NCAA Tourney for 25th Straight Season

By  | 

The Arizona Wildcats are in the NCAA tournament for the 25th straight year.

The Wildcats (19-13) extended the nation's longest active string
of NCAA appearances on Sunday, slipping into the tournament as a
No. 12 seed. Arizona will face fifth-seeded Utah (24-9) on Friday
in Miami.

If the Wildcats win, they would face either fourth-seeded Wake
Forest or 13th-seeded Cleveland State in the second round.

Arizona's streak began in 1985. The longest streak is North
Carolina's run of 27 straight NCAA appearances from 1975-2001.
