Arizona was stunned by an early exit from the NCAA Tournament after 13th-seeded Buffalo upset the Wildcats 89-68.
The Bulls controlled the game nearly wire-to-wire, leaving the Pac-12 champions disheartened and fans disillusioned.
So of course, Twitter had to react to the upset:
Embarrassing performance by Arizona. And that’s an understatement.

No good way to spin that for Arizona, and it will likely get worse. Wildcats lose all five starters and have no incoming recruits.

No. 13 Buffalo stuns Arizona for its first NCAA Tournament victory in school history.
The Bulls 21-point win is tied for the 2nd-largest by a 13 seed over a 4 seed since the Tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985.

What if I told you Sean Miller paid $100,000 for Ayton and Alonzo Trier pumped himself full of PED’s just to lose to Buffalo by 20 in the first round of the tourney?

Poor Sean Miller… Someone give him a postgame candy bar… Maybe a 100 Grand?
— Ben Heisler (@bennyheis) March 16, 2018
hey Sean Miller…..you up ?
— Barstool Pitt (@StoolPitt) March 16, 2018
Pitt should definitely hire Sean Miller because he'd fit right in with their decades-long tradition of doing absolutely nothing in the NCAA Tournament.

Man, Buffalo is really making Sean Miller pay.
