They are hurting on the main-line right now.
This won’t stop Villanova from being a 2-seed in the NCAA tournament, but it will be the shot heard around Philly for at least the next week or so.
Seton Hall kicked off the madness of March days before the NCAA Tournament field is even set. The Pirates knocked No. 3 Villanova out of the Big East Tournament with a stunning buzzer beater.
With his team trailing by one point and just 3.7 seconds remaining in the second half, Seton Hall guard Sterling Gibbs hit a Nova defender with a step-back move, drained a fadeaway jumper as time expired to give the Pirates a 64-63 victory in the quarterfinal matchup.
The upset was Seton Hall’s first win over a top-three team in the program’s history.
Seton Hall now 1-30 against Top 3 teams. Big win for the Pirates.
