"I want to believe in Villanova in March. And at times this season, it looked like the Wildcats were starting to round into form as a real Final Four threat. They have the experience, the guards, the coaching and more. But their defense hasn't been overly consistent down the stretch of the season, and that concerns me. In six of its past nine games, Nova has allowed at least 1.09 points per possession. The three teams that didn't hit that mark were St. John's, Georgetown and Butler. The six that did hit the mark were all NCAA tournament teams. Villanova doesn't have much in the way of rim protection, although the Wildcats rarely do, but they've also been susceptible lately to second-chance opportunities and effective low-post players." - ESPN

Villanova was expected to face off against Longwood in the first round of the NCAA Tournament where they should be a -17.5 favorite.
