We play for the name on the front of the jersey.
Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat.
We play for those who came before us.

These beliefs are at the core of every Villanova Basketball player. However, the last one is what many fans and alumns have in mind for this matchup against North Carolina.

Since 1991, the Tar Heels have knocked the Villanova Wildcats out of the NCAA Tournament four times. If there is anytime for this 'Nova squad to play for those who came before them, it is tonight. These guys are counting on them.
