NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-Villanova vs Radford Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The second round hasn’t been kind to Villanova in recent years, but the Wildcats looked very good in dismantling Radford on Thursday night. Their prize: Collin Sexton and a hot Alabama team.

Sexton is the type of guard that has given ‘Nova problems in previous versions of the NCAA Tournament, but the ‘Cats also boast the best defensive player in the country in Mikal Bridges, who should have the skillset to make life difficult for the star freshman.

The Tide go as Sexton goes on offense, but they should be able to make things difficult for ‘Nova when they are on defense as well. It makes for a good matchup in what should be a great game to kick off the day.

Is this wrong? I’m back in Pennsylvania for the game this weekend, but tragically too far from Pittsburgh to attend. Free Yuengling at my Uncle-In-Law’s bar!
