NCAA Tournament East Region: Villanova Has Easiest Path To Final Four

NCAA Tournament East Region: Villanova Has Easiest Path To Final Four

The victor of that game will advance as the 16 seed to face Villanova Thursday in Pittsburgh.

BOTTOM LINE: Northeast Conference Tournament victor LIU-Brooklyn makes its first appearance in the tournament in five years.

"We're happy to play any extra game we can", Polite told the Roanoke Times.

It will be the first-ever meeting between Radford and Villanova.

Turning point: Radford took the first lead of the game and was down 9-7 as the game approached the first media timeout, but it was all Villanova from there.

The Highlanders lost their only two previous NCAA tournament games by an average of 39.5 points, though those setbacks came against a Duke team led by Elton Brand in 1998 and Tyler Hansbrough's NCAA championship North Carolina squad in 2009.

They will go up against the Radford Highlanders (22-12, 12-6 Big South), entering on a seven-game winning streak, capped off by a three-pointer at the buzzer to clinch their conference title in dramatic fashion.

By doing this, the Jets rule out any potential trade up ahead of them, making them a near lock to grab a quarterback at No. 3. The Giants could be a threat to draft Darnold, however, I think a quarterback like Josh Rosen would fit their needs better.

Tributes pour in for Stephen Hawking
Redmayne said at the time of the film that Hawking wanted to live life to the full - and that he always had a glint in his eye. And though he was confined to a wheelchair and was paralyzed, Hawking continued his work.

Long Island University-Brooklyn won their last game against Wagner, 71-61 on Tuesday, March 6th.

The Highlanders, winners of the Big South tournament, dropped to 0-3 all-time in the NCAA Tournament with all three defeats coming against No. 1 seeds. Courtney Stockard returned from a hamstring injury and scored 26 points to help the Bonnies get their first NCAA Tournament win in 48 years.

Villanova hit its first six shots of the second half and the rout was on. They got hot when it counted, having won a season-high five straight. In fact, I'll say it right now: The Wildcats will reach the Final Four in San Antonio.

After misfiring on their first attempt from beyond the 3-point arc, Villanova made its next four with four different players connecting - Phil Booth, Mikal Bridges, Brunson and Donte DiVincenzo.

Radford's defense is one of the nation's best, allowing just 64.4 points per game - 15th best in the country.

Look, a No. 16 seed is surely going to upset a No. 1 in the NCAA Tournament at some point in our lifetimes. The past three years, the average margin of victory for the No. 1 has been more than 28 points. They made 10 of their first 12 shots in the second half. The Wildcats were +400 to win March Madness at BetDSI. If the game gets close down the stretch and free-throw shooting becomes a factor, these two have the experience and the skill to handle the pressure.

OR 99, Rider 86: Freshman Victor Bailey Jr. hit 7 of 8 3-pointers and scored 23 points, both career bests, and OR rallied in the fourth quarter at home to advance.
