22 years ago today 1997 the Arizona Wildcats won the national championship. Still the only team to beat 3 number 1 seeds and a championship. Wow, how time flies!

Relive the championship game by watching it again below. 🐻⬇️

We need everything like that again.

But it took some years to get to that point - that was not just one recruiting class or a magical season...it was the culmination of years of work.

I'll never forget how the arena was 2/3 UK fans since Lexington is so close and yet we STILL managed to show them our U of A loud & clear!  What an incredible night! We had printed newspapers that morning for each outcome and had them locked away, except for a couple we took in the arena that we took down to Bobbie O at the end of overtime.  The UK ones got recycled!  ;D

I was very lucky to be at that game. Still have an unworn tee shirt celebrating that championship.  Won’t get worn until we are in our next final FF game.
