TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The excitement from Salt Lake City has made it's way to Tucson.

Needless to say, University of Arizona students have no doubt that their team is going to make Tucson proud in the first round. 

Sophomore Dalton Gilgor has been adamantly following Wildcat basketball, and says his confidence comes from his knowledge of the players.


Senior Hailey Reucas says hers comes from U of A's placement on the bracket.

And Connor Shea, well...

"I just have faith in my boys, you know it's not really grounded in fact so much as feeling, you know?"

But some might say Connor has good intuition. put their odds on Arizona, saying the Wildcats will beat the Bruins by 4.5 points in a 141-point game.

But Bleacher Report tells a different story.

They're predicting an upset with 11 seed Belmont up by three in a close 147-point game.

Either way, it's predicted to be a close one, but Wildcat fans on campus don't seem to be too worried.
