It should be noted that the Wildcats were the only team to defeat Big-12 Champion, and No. 2 seed in the West Region, Missouri twice this year.

The Golden Eagles a tough team who embody their coach Larry Eustachy, who had a good career at Iowa St. before falling victim to alcohol addiction. Eustachy is sober now and has his team in the NCAA tournament ready to prove to everyone that he still has what it takes to coach at a high level. One could say that this is a job interview for a higher profile job for the coach.
