It may have helped to face a No. 14 seed in the round of 32, but the Arizona Wildcats have been as impressive as any team in the NCAA Tournament.

Arizona blitzed Harvard 74-51 on Saturday in Salt Lake City, so the No. 6-seeded Wildcats have won their two games by a total of 40 points.

The 'Cats advance to the West Region semifinals in Los Angeles, where they likely will meet No. 2 Ohio State.

Arizona shot 55 percent from the field to Harvard's 27 percent. Mark Lyons led the Wildcats with 27 points. Solomon Hill added 13 points and 10 rebounds.
