The No. 13 seeded Bulls will have a big challenge as they meet No. 4 seed Arizona for NCAA First Round action in Boise, Idaho.
That matchup will be the late game in Boise, ID on Thursday night. UB and Arizona will tip off 30 minutes following the conclusion of the 7:10 EST game. That would put the approximate start time between 9:45-10:00 p.m. EST

Arizona is currently ranked 15th in the country as they claimed their second straight Pac-12 Tournament Title on Saturday night. The Wildcats are 27-7 on the season and are led by PAC-12 freshman Deandre Ayton, who was voted PAC 12 Player of the Year and is recognized as one of premier talents in the country.
The Buffalo-Arizona winner will face the winner of the game between #5 Kentucky and #12 Davidson on Saturday.
