I don't know how, and honestly don't even want to know why, but Villanova locked down a 2-seed in the South Regional. They will face Robert Morris in the 1st round in Providence, Rhode Island on Thursday (Time TBA). Villanova's bracket includes a possible matchup with 3-seed Baylor in Houston for the Sweet 16, a situation that is just about the only negative side to their draw.
Most experts had 'Nova landing as either a 3 or a 4, so the 2-seed came as a big shock to everyone around the country. But hey, we're not complaining!
If you are thinking of going out to Providence (we are!) here's one place you can check on tickets.
More after the jump...
Below are the seedings for the South Regional:

Villanova will play the winner of Richmond/Saint Mary's in the 2nd round on Saturday in Providence should they win on Thursday. Andrew will be providing more analysis on the bracket shortly, but for now discuss in the comments!
