The round of 32 kicks off on Saturday all across the country. In the West Region the Saint Mary’s Gaels take on the Arizona Wildcats.
This is the first time the two teams have played since 2005. Arizona has won the previous three match ups between the two teams.
Saint Mary’s Gaels
The Saint Mary’s Gaels finished the regular season in Second place in the West Coast Conference.
That was enough to get them a seven seed in the NCAA Tournament and a first round date with VCU.
They didn’t have any problems dismantling VCU as they controlled the game the whole time in route to a 85-88 victory.
For the Gaels to pull the upset over the Wildcats it’s going to come down to the defensive side of the floor.
They need to find a way to shut down the Wildcats big men.
The Arizona Wildcats had no problem in their first round game against the North Dakota Fighting Hawks. They used their size to really dominate the game the last thirty minutes.
For the Wildcats they need to have the better big men in this game. They need to feed it inside early and often.
They also need to really lock down the Gaels on the defensive end if they want to advance to the Sweet 16.

Free Saint Mary’s Gaels vs. Arizona Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
This game is going to come down to the inside play of both teams. Both of these teams strength are in their big men so whichever teams big men can perform better will win this game.
I think that team will be the Arizona Wildcats. I expect them to get off to a hot start and try to get the Gaels in foul trouble.
