Princeton Tigers vs Arizona Wildcats Predictions 3/16/2023


The Arizona Wildcats (28-6; 17-15-2 ATS) defeated Stanford 95-84, Arizona State 78-59, and UCLA 61-59 in a row to win the Pac-12 Conference championship tournament following an 82-73 loss at UCLA in the regular-season finale.

The Wildcats have an overall record of 13-3 SU and 11-4-1 ATS in their previous 16 games. Last Saturday against UCLA, the Wildcats managed just 36.5% of the field goal attempts.


They were 17-for-25 from the charity stripe and 6-for-20 from deep. Nonetheless, the Wildcats outrebounded the Bruins 37-32 while only allowing four three-pointers to be made. 


The No. 2 seed in the March Madness South Region is Arizona. Both the KenPom and NCAA NET rankings have the Wildcats at No. 10.

#15 Princeton Tigers vs #2 Arizona Wildcats. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #2 Arizona Wildcats. Although the Tigers have a strong defense, they might not keep the Wildcats out of the paint.


Keeshawn Kellman, a 6-foot-8 senior forward, will have to contend with 7-footer Oumar Ballo, who averages 14.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game in 2022–23.


Azuolas Tubelis, a 6-foot-11 star for Arizona, is one of the most dominant power forwards in the nation, and 6-foot-7 Tosan Evbuomwan will guard him.


Tubelis averages 19.8 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 59.4% of his field goals are made.


Arizona is currently playing at the ninth-fastest pace in the country (72.3 possessions every 40 minutes), so it will be difficult for the Tigers to keep up with them.


Princeton is ranked 171st in the nation for pace (67.5), but the Tigers are 349th for the percentage of defensive turnovers (14.5). The #2 Arizona Wildcats will win with a predicted score of 80-64.
