Final Four-bound Arizona's Aari McDonald is playing her best ball in NCAA Tournament

Special to Arizona Daily Star

It’s Aari McDonald’s world.

In the last two games, the Arizona Wildcats’ senior guard has played two of the three best games in program history.

Her latest: A 33-point outburst that delivered Arizona’s first Final Four appearance. She hit 12 of 20 shots — and 5 of 6 3-pointers — as the third-seeded Wildcats defeated fourth-seeded Indiana 66-53 on Monday night. The UA will take on No. 1 seed UConn Friday, with the winner advancing to the national championship game.
