Villanova Taking On Wisconsin Saturday Afternoon

Villanova guard Donte Di Vincenzo grabs a rebound next two Mount St. Mary's forward Chris Wray during the second half

And they didn't take their first lead until just a minute remained in the first half.

Yet Koenig hasn't completely forgotten the next game, UW's 61-56 loss to Notre Dame in the Sweet 16.

Wisconsin called time with 20.3 seconds left and 14 on the shot clock.

"When you look, statistically, at all these things, and say, 'The 1 seed did this or that, ' that might have been back in the day". Six Boilermakers scored in double figures, including Vince Edwards with 21 points. "But that's not an excuse because everyone is exhausted".

Wisconsin needed second half play and shots from the perimeter to beat Virginia Tech. "I think we're starting to scratch the surface. There's really not a lot of similarities on the diamond between J.A. and me".

"That's what I told myself. Be aggressive and let it fly".

Villanova, though, recovered and took its first lead at 26-25 when Eric Paschall powered home a dunk with 2:33 left in the half. "He was definitely very positive for us last night". Similar to Hayes, Iverson was also solid from the line, shooting 7/10 for the game. That mark was down significantly from last season, when hit made 73.6 percent of his attempts.

Being 6-10 is rarely a drawback in the game of basketball, and Happ has used it to his advantage - combining a large low-post presence with the ability to scoot around defenders easily.

Marquette's Duane Wilson (1) shoots against SC during the first half in a first-round game of the NCAA men's college basketball tournament in Greenville, S.C., Friday, March 17, 2017.


"We wanted to get me isolated on the wing", Hayes said. "And I think they know that, you know?"

"We're not there yet", Martin said after the cheers died down. "If you look at their body of work in the NCAA Tournament, it is pretty good".

The Virginia Tech men's basketball team's first NCAA tournament game in a decade didn't have the fairytale ending that it hoped for. What's probably more impressive to me that overshadows that inconsistency, is a Duke team who put together the first ever four straight wins in four games in their ACC Tournament title run. The Wildcats' record during the last four seasons is 129-16.

HollywoodLifers, who are you rooting for in this game? "That air of confidence that borders arrogance".

"We have great respect for this Wisconsin team", stated Villanova head coach Jay Wright.

"I've seen him do a lot of things", Wisconsin coach Greg Gard said.

It gave Koenig flashbacks to a game against IN six days earlier IN the Big Ten tournament, when he had trouble catching his breath. It wouldn't be surprised if the Wildcats, who saw a great defensive team in West Virginia three times in Big-12 play, winning once and losing by just one in the semifinals in the Big-12 Tournament, shock a very well defended Cincinnati team that may be overlooking the eleventh-seeded Wildcats.

The Badgers are fully capable of the upset, but they don't have the depth behind their three best players and predicting them to keep pace with Villanova seems unlikely.

"I like his suit game", Happ said.
