VILLANOVA RUMORS & GOSSIP
Jay Wright had a case of tournament jitters. He warned his friends he could be tough to watch.
Always a stylish picture of cool on the sideline, Wright worried he'd garble names as a guest studio analyst.

Only Villanova got neither in a 73-64 overtime loss that put a dent in the program's NCAA...
