This week’s game in the Arizona Wildcats Sweet 17 Tournament pitted the sixth-seeded 2003 team versus the eleventh-seeded 1991 squad. The 2003 Arizona Wildcats, ranked #1 in the AP poll for most of the season, fell in the Elite Eight after a masterful duel between point guard Jason Gardner and Kansas Jayhawks guard Kirk Heinrich. The 1991 Wildcats similarly never left the AP Top 10 the entire season and won a very tough Pac-12 with a 14-4 record.
