Belmont was the popular pick, but Arizona was the better team winning 81-64 Thursday in Salt Lake City in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

The Wildcats incredible size difference was too much for the Bruins to overcome as they fell to 0-6 all time in tournament games.  Arizona won the battle of the boards decisively 44-18 and outscored the Bruins 36-18 in the paint.

The Bruins struggled from 3-point range hitting just two of their first 13 attempts from beyond the arc.

Kerron Johnson led Belmont with 22 points and Clark finished with 21.

Belmont's season ends at (26-7).
