Men's NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 Chicago Regional

Analysts and fans alike are saying that tonight's matchup between No. 3 seed Arizona and No. 2 seed Oklahoma State easily could have been for the national championship.

While their schools' basketball teams battle in separate Sweet 16 games, No. 13 Arizona and Washington baseball open Pacific 10 Conference play tonight at 7 p.m. at Sancet Stadium.

Men's swim, dive heads to NCAAs
