Cats roll on to New York

Tucson, AZ (KOLD - New York City here they come. The Arizona men's basketball team advanced to the NIT Season Tip Off semifinals at Madison Square Garden beating Rhode Island 87-59.

Nick Johnson notched his first career double double with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Brandon Ashley scored 16.

Offense was great, defense was better holding the Rams to just 37% shooting from the floor.

The only cause of concern? 14 turnovers on the evening.

Up next, a date with the 8th seed Drexel. The Dragons upset 4th seed Rutgers. They'll play next Wednesday at Madison Square Garden at 5:00pm local time.
