Vote, vote, vote!

Villanova Mug Arizin Links

Andy Katz has put together a 64-team bracket of the best programs throughout the decade.

The Villanova Wildcats—over 200 wins, two National Championships, a Final Four appearance in 2009, five regular season Big East titles, and four conference tournament championships over the last 10 years—are a No. 1 seed and is up against the No. 16-seeded UMBC.

The Retrievers are looking to pull off another 16-seed over 1-seed shocker, but the ‘Nova Nation can come out in full force and vote!

When the poll first launched, UMBC had a slight lead, but it looks like ‘Nova has gained some separation. The polls will stay open for about another day, so get on it!

And now, “the news” —
