ANAHEIM, Calif. -- One notable trend ends today when Wisconsin and Arizona meet for a Final Four berth at the Honda Center:
Either UA breaks its streak of three Elite Eight losses in Anaheim or Sean Miller's streak of never losing as coach of the better-seeded team in the NCAA tournament goes down...
In Anaheim, the defending national champs were shocked by Utah in 1998, Kirk Hinrich of Kansas blocked a three-pointer from Jason Gardner to end a 2002-03 season in which the Wildcats were mostly atop the polls, and UConn put an end to Arizona's surprising 2011 run.
But Miller took Xavier to three Sweet 16s and the 2008 Elite Eight, and he's now taken Arizona to three Sweet 16s and two Elite Eights, losing only to better teams.
Meanwhile, either Bo Ryan or Miller is going to be taken off the list of Best-Coaches-Never-In-A-Final Four.
Plenty more links just in case the wait 'til 5:49 p.m. PT is seeming awfully loooong ...
-- Bo Ryan won't lift his foot off the accelerator.
-- Shelly Gordon already has bought tickets for Dallas.
-- Aaron Gordon compares himself to "Scottie Griffin."
-- Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was all shook up Friday night but not because of the game.
-- Chester, Pa., natives Hollis-Jefferson and Bo Ryan have formed a mutual respect.
-- Kaleb Tarczewski, who faces a tough matchup with Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky, has changed his fitness focus to preventative work.
-- Sean Miller sees T.J. McConnell as a coach and -- maybe this seems surprising -- an NBA player.
-- The side of the court where Wisconsin's offense faces Arizona's defense may be the one to watch the most.
-- The school-produced notes from Arizona (Wisconsin's do not appear to be posted yet).
