Arizona weathers 'storms' to advance to Sweet 16 again

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) After the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament, Arizona coach Sean Miller can roll off a list of concerns about his team: staying focused on defense, moving the ball against a zone and making outside shots.

The good news for Miller? The Wildcats will be around for the second week to correct them.

Second-seeded Arizona advanced to the Sweet 16 for the third straight year Saturday, overcoming a slow start to beat Ohio State 73-58 in Portland. The Wildcats also trounced tiny Texas Southern 93-72 here Thursday, though neither Miller nor his players were pleased with their defense in that one.
