Arizona Loaded With Talent

The Arizona Wildcats are a talented team that’s delivered all season long. They hope that doesn’t change in the games that matter the most.

Arizona has been led by Azuolas Tubelis. The forward plays for exactly 30 minutes per game and averages 19.8 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 2.0 assists.

Oumar Ballo can be a strong contributor as well. Ballo is putting up 14.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks from the center position.

This team loves to push the pace, averaging 83 points (fourth in the country). Princeton is likely going to try and slow this down, but Arizona has too many weapons and enough experience to keep that from happening.

The Wildcats won the Pac-12 Tournament and have a lot of momentum right now, which is why a lot of sports betting handicappers like them go deep in the NCAA Tournament.

Princeton Led By Star Forward

The Tigers are led by a star forward of their own in Tosan Evbuomwan. He’s currently putting up 15.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game. He’s been a very important member of this offense, especially considering his above-average efficiency.

He’s shooting 52.7 percent from the floor and knocking down 31.0 percent of his 3-point attempts. The challenge is that Princeton might not have enough weapons behind him.

Those who bet online know that Arizona has enough top-level talent to throw at Evbuomwan to slow him down. The Wildcats also have good rim protection. Princeton needs some secondary scoring to emerge in this one or it’ll be tough for the Tigers to cover the college basketball odds.
