Villanova: The Wildcats are the best in the Big East.
Cartwright Shines: Another day, another MSG takeover for Kyron Cartwright. Providence calls timeout. 9-2 Villanova. Villanova stormed to a 19 point lead after 20 minutes and traded baskets the rest of the way. Cartwright had eight points in the run and Watson seven.
Prior to the final 3-pointer of that run he defended the massive Spellman in the paint and boxed him out on the rebound.
Cartwright's jumper gave Providence a 73-70 lead, but Trevon Bluiett cut the margin to a point with two free throws with 41 seconds to go.
This is what Dave Gavitt had in mind when he came up with the idea of the Big East Conference more than 40 years ago, a packed house on a Saturday night with two schools, preferably Catholic ones, battling it out for league supremacy.
Villanova took a 31-27 advantage into the intermission. "We played well. They're a really good offensive team".
Cartwright scored 17 of his 19 points after halftime.
The Friars actually took the lead with under a minute left. Providence could not win the game in regulation.
The final minute featured dramatic swings with both teams seizing momentum. Rodney Bullock with a triple.
Cooley then went to the bench for Drew Edwards and the pesky defender slowed Brunson's onslaught. But the defense was excellent, holding the Musketeers to just four points themselves. I think that Xavier is on a mission to win this tournament and with that being said, I think the Friars will get run over tonight.
ORLANDO, Fla. - Senior guard Rob Gray never liked the idea of waiting for the selection committee to put his No. 21 Houston Cougars into the NCAA Tournament.
ST. LOUIS - Collin Sexton and Alabama were making another push in the second half, cutting Kentucky's big lead down to nine with 5:15 remaining. It was the third overtime game for the Friars in as many nights.
West Virginia will be happy to play someone other than Kansas in the NCAA Tournament.
A 3-pointer by Macura with 14:45 had extended the Musketeers' lead to 52-35.
Amid all the intensity, Brunson helped keep things levelheaded.
Then came the back breaker.
"It started back when I was a freshman". The Friars had a much better offensive rebounding percentage (27.9 vs. 13.8) and had a much better turnover percentage (15.7 vs. 23.5). The 6'6 junior seemed too bouncy for PC at times.
Who Public Bettors Like:Providence.
The Friars recruited Paschall prior to his commitment to Fordham in April 2013.
That's when Cartwright and the Friars made their move.
