Now that the NCAA tournament has wrapped up and your brackets are ripped up and thrown in the trash except for the lucky few that called a Louisville/Michigan final, we at Zona Zealots thought it might be a good time to look at who the best Arizona Wildcats basketball teams have been throughout the year. And if you’re going to look at something like that, why not turn it into a bracket?

I loosely seeded the top 16 Arizona teams, but then I realized that we didn’t have a play-in game. So although this should be the Sweet 16 Arizona Wildcats teams, you have before you the Sweet 17.
