#17 Seed: The 04/05 Wildcats were sharpshooters extraordinaire, but suffered a propensity for turnovers and related defensive lapses.  Led by free spirited Senior Salim Stoudamire, this Arizona squad put a season-ending last second dagger into the heart of the Oklahoma State Cowboys.  Less than 48 hours later, Lute Olsen's Wildcats went on to suffer arguably the worse comeback loss in dance history to Deron Williams and his Illinois teammates. Perhaps no team or fanbase has felt the agony and ecstacy of March Madness moreso than UA absorbed over that three day Chicago session.  The 04/05 Arizona team was an offensively loaded machine that often shot lights out, but had trouble closing out the deal.
