Well, we made it. Villanova is back in the Battle 4 Atlantis Championship game and I did not explode from the amount of Thanksgiving food that I chose to intake. The latter was the bigger miracle.
We all thought we’d have Arizona here. Nope. NC State? Nope! Instead we’ll get a Northern Iowa team that has been one of the better mid-major programs in the country for the past couple of years. If the early rounds have been any indication, this won’t be easy either.
Early-tip, so prepare accordingly.
