The Arizona Wildcats may be losing two stars in Aaron Gordon and Nick Johnson, but that should not matter much. The Wildcats will still be one of the most talented teams in the country and will battle for a national title. As usual, the team will play some tough opponents, though. So let’s take a look at five games you must watch in the 2014-15 college basketball season.

The Gonzaga Bulldogs seem to always be good and the 2014-15 season will be no different. The Bulldogs have the talent to be ranked in the top 25 all season long and should start that way.

Michigan Wolverines

Michigan loses its fair share of talent (Mitch McGary, Glenn Robinson III, Nik Stauskas), but in no way will it be an easy opponent. Caris LeVert should take on a much bigger role and he is not alone.

UNLV Rebels

UNLV is definitely not one of the best teams on paper entering the 2014-15 season, but the Rebels usually always compete. Plus, this game will be played on the road for Arizona. An upset isn’t likely, but you never know.

Stanford managed to make the Sweet 16 this past season. The team does lose a couple of players, but leading scorer Chasson Randle will be back, which is good news for the Cardinal.

The Wildcats will be the heavy favorites to win the Pac-12 going into the season, but Stanford could give them some problems.

UCLA Bruins

It is too bad that Jordan Adams, Zach LaVine and Kyle Anderson all went pro, but the Bruins still have a great head coach and will have some talent. Unfortunately, the Wildcats should be a much better team, but that does not mean that these two teams won’t battle it out.
