In the final game of Third Round action on Saturday, we’re treated to what should be a tremendous match up between two old conference foes as the UConn Huskies will take on Villanova Wildcats in East Region action to see who will advance to the Sweet 16.
UConn nearly didn’t make it to this point. In their opening game of the tournament on Thursday, they were taken to the limit by the St. Joseph’s Hawks, but they were able to walk away with the win in overtime. Once again, conference players of the year Shabazz Napier showed up down the stretch, put the team on his back and was able to lead them to the win to keep their national title hopes alive.
Villanova, on the other hand, had no problem whatsoever getting past Milwaukee in their opening contest. After a disappointing outing in the Big East Tournament in which they were ousted early by Seton Hall, the Wildcats only have national title hopes left to prove that this season wasn’t an aberration.
