Arizona, UCLA Survive and Advance to Sweet 16

Two of three Pac-12 schools are still alive after the opening rounds of play.

With only three schools heading into the NCAA tournament, the Pac-12 conference needed a strong showing from the Arizona Wildcats, USC Trojans and UCLA Bruins. 

As is often the case with every March Madness, the script was flipped on many favorites by underdogs looking to fit in Cinderella's glass slipper for the remaining days of the basketball season. 

Two No. 12 seeds upset No. 5 seeds thanks to Richmond and New Mexico State shocking their respective opponents in the first round, while No. 15 Saint Peter's defeated No. 2 Kentucky and No. 7 Murray State on its way to the Sweet 16. 

Now, with 16 teams fighting for survival, two represent the Pac-12 thanks to Arizona and UCLA.
