Arizona (33-3) is fortunate to be in this spot as they needed overtime to beat the No. 9 seed TCU Horned Frogs 85-80 in Round 2 after knocking off the No. 16 Wright State Raiders 87-70 in the opening round. The Wildcats have been impressive all season long in Year 1 under head coach Tommy Lloyd, and Kerr Kriisa will had an extra few days for his ankle to get a little healthier.
Houston (31-5) cruised right by No. 12 seed UAB Blazers 82-68 and took care of business against the No. 4 seed Illinois Fighting Illini 68-53 to advance to the second weekend. The Cougars have been without two of their top players Tramon Mark and Marcus Sasser for the majority of the season, but Kelvin Sampson is an incredible coach and has them in the Sweet 16 for the third straight NCAA Tournament.
Arizona is a 1.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. The point total sits at 145.
