In the NCAA tournament, skill trumps seed

By Joe DiglioI really liked the way this year’s Villanova team was put together. Sure, the Wildcats were thin inside with only one guy (Daniel Ochefu) listed above 6’7”. But the balance they had was a thing of beauty: six guys averaging at least nine points per game, only one guy (Darrun Hilliard) averaging over 10 shots per game.Why was this a big deal?

NCAA Tournament Roundup: NC State Stuns Top-Seeded Villanova, Kentucky Survives

Let it be stated for the record: Villanova is not a fan of the Round of 32.

Villanova has made four of the last five Big Dances but has failed to advance to the Sweet 16 every time...

Villanova just found out how ruthless the NCAA tournament can be

The NCAA tournament is our country's most captivating sporting event. It's also quite easily the cruelest. Ask Villanova. The Wildcats were thoroughly dominant over the course of a 34-game regular season, losing just twice and earning a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. They demolished poor Lafayette 93-52 in their tourney opener. NC State, by contrast, lost 13 times, landed a No...

No. 1 Villanova Loses to No. 8 NC State And That Makes This Flute Player Very, Very Sad

It is bound to happen at some point during the Tournament, but the teams that hold the designation of being the No. 1 seed hope that it happens late in the Tournament if it has to happen at all.

Villanova vs. N.C. State – Game Time, TV Channel, Announcers, Betting Line, Predictions

Twitter/@VUCoachJWright If there were doubts about Villanova’s standing as a No. 1 seed, the Wildcats did about as much as any team can in eliminating them, at least as far as games against 16 seeds go. ‘Nova absolutely crushed Lafayette 93-52, a score that probably could’ve been worse if Jay Wright wanted. N.C. State did not have the same easy path to the round of 32. The...

There is a real possibility for an all-Wildcats Final Four

This is pretty far-fetched given the inherent difficulty of predicting the Final Four any year, but it's not like we're asking for an All-Bulldogs Final Four of Butler, Yale, Fresno State and Georgia (an impossibility this year because two of the four did not qualify for the tournament). Anyhow, an ALL-WILDCAT Final Four would take place in Indianapolis if the overall No. 1 seed...
