TUCSON, Ariz. – For the second time in program history, Arizona Women's Basketball will host the first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament. The Wildcats will welcome North Carolina, and Stephen F. Austin and UNLV to McKale Center as part of the Greensboro Region. Arizona, the No. 4 seed, will play in the NCAA Tournament on its home court for the first time since 1998.
