TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Arizona opened the NCAA tournament with a victory, exactly what a No. 1 seed is supposed to do.
The way it happened, with a jittery start and ease-off-the-gas-pedal finish, the Wildcats will likely hear those upset picks even more now.
Anxious early and a bit too comfortable late, top-seeded Arizona pulled out a 69-59 win over Weber State in the West Regional on Friday, a victory that's unlikely to change predictions that the Wildcats will lose in the next round.
Here in Tucson, Wildcats fans are showing major support for their team. See the pictures in the Wildcat Fever photo gallery.
