UConn leads the all-time series against Arizona (4-0), putting on a thriller of a finish in all four games.
It should be noted that none of these games came in the postseason or had the ramifications like Saturday's matchup.
Let's look back at those four games:
December 7, 1999—UConn 79, Arizona 69
Gilbert Arenas couldn't get it done against a well-coached UConn squad as the Huskies erupted with a 11-to-0 run to close out the game and defeated the No. 2 Arizona Wildcats in Chicago.
The Huskies Khalid El-Amin spearheaded the charge with 23 points and freshman Tony Robertson contributed a career-high, 15 points.
Gilbert Arenas led Arizona with a solid 18-point performance.
December 9, 2000—UConn 71, Arizona 69
What was a tough and final loss against the Huskies for future NBA stars, Richard Jefferson and Gilbert Arenas, Arizona thought they forced overtime against Caron Butler and UConn.
Until with 1.8 seconds left to play, Tony Robertson's floater was blocked by Arizona center Loren Woods, with an end result of a goaltending violation and two points awarded to the Huskies.
Caron Butler led the way, scoring 16 points and Tony Roberston's winning runner resulted in 14 for the sophomore.
Michael Wright had 18 points and 10 rebounds, but it wasn't enough for the Wildcats.
January 26, 2002—UConn 100, Arizona 98, OT
A shootout was justified in the midwest, on this night in Tuscon, Ariz.
The overtime thriller featured future NBA stars Caron Butler, Ben Gordon and Emeka Okafor vs. Luke Walton, Channing Frye and Will Bynum of Arizona. Those big names didn't matter in the end for the Wildcats, as the Huskies scored nine of the final 10 points.
Emeka Okafor was a beast leading the way with 19 points and 15 rebounds, Ben Gordon dropped 23 points and Taliek Brown contributed 21.
One of the country's premiere point guards, Jason Gardner scored a game-high 30 points on 45 percent shooting and Salim Stoudamire added 20 in the devastating loss.
November 22, 2005—UConn 79, Arizona 70
In the semifinals of the Maui Invitational, Craig Austrie scored a career-best 15 points for the Huskies, saving the day from an off night suffered by UConn star Rudy Gay—who went 2-for-10 from the field with six points.
Ivan Radenovic led the way, with 20 for a weaker than usual Wildcat team.
