The Arizona Wildcats secured the No. 2 seed in the West Sunday after a 30-4 season and are one of the top teams in the country. Most brackets for the upcoming NCAA Tournament reflect that perspective.

However, anything can happen in March, and a deep tournament run is far from a given.

Arizona fans can take solace in the fact that 11 of the 18 college basketball experts featured picked the Wildcats to advance out of the West to the Final Four in Glendale, with two picking them to cut down the net on April 3.

Below are some experts’ predictions for the Final Four and national champion, as well as how Arizona fares in their brackets. National champion picks are in bold.
