My Villanova Wildcats came up shorts against Kansas last night. It was a stretch for then to beat Kansas as good as Kansas is this year but I had hoped they would play better than they did. They looked a step slow across the board for most of the game. Kansas didn’t give them many open looks and the few they did get, they didn’t convert.
If Scottie Reynolds sticks around for next year, Villanova should be pretty good. They still need a real big man though. Until they get one, I don’t think they can be much better than a top 20 team. Still a good year all things considered, better than expected and nice to see them in the Sweet 16.
Now that Villanova is out, I am rooting for the Tarheels (which I do anyway). Living here in the Triangle, you have to a have a local affiliation and the Tarheels are mine. My wife got her MBA from UNC so we have a legit connection. 😉
