Sunday starts off with Villanova and Iowa, and both fanbases have been tortured when it comes to making the Sweet 16. Villanova is looking for their first trip since 2009, and it's been 10 years longer than that for Hawkeye fans.
The Wildcats trounced UNC-Asheville on Friday while Iowa needed overtime to get past Temple. It's a matchup filled with star power - Josh Hart for 'Nova and Jarrod Uthoff for Iowa - along with two coaches with Philadelphia roots. Hold on to your butts, 'Nova Nation!

BEVERAGE OF CHOICE
I'm over at the in-laws so I'm working with a limited bar setup here, but oddly enough I have all the ingredients, including my favorite beer Tecate, in the house. Wife is serving brunch for the game so this is a good pairing. There's a ton of different ways to make this cocktail but I keep it simple. 3/4 Tecate, 1/4 Clamato and a couple of hits of Worcestershire & Tabasco. Maggi or Soy Sauce if you must.
Also - Villanova please keep this simple and win this game.
