NCAA Tournament 2017: How to watch Villanova Basketball vs. Mount St. Mary’s

The champs are here!

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Buffalo Practice Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The big day is finally here! The Villanova Wildcats begin their quest to repeat as National Champions in Buffalo where they’ll take on the Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers in primetime with Uncle Verne on the call!

The Mount won a play-in game in the First Four to earn the right to play the reigning champs, but they’ll be heavy underdogs. No 16-seed has ever upset a 1-seed, and this probably won’t be the first time it happens.

The Mount are a dangerous bunch though. They won the double in the NEC this year and Elijah Long, Junior Robinson and Miles Wilson are quality players. Villanova can’t sleepwalk through this one, but given their focus level we shold expect the opposite.

Game Time, TV Schedule: 7:10pm ET. The game will be televised on CBS.

Live Video Stream:


4:30p ET Thursday, March 16 at the Hyatt Regency Buffalo - Mix and mingle with Villanova alumni and fans, and greet the Wildcats on their way to the game.

SweetWater Brewery’s finest

Slow and steady wins the race on the first day of March Madness, especially with the holiest of holidays (I wish I was still young) tomorrow. SweetWater has a couple new beers I’ve wanted to try.

(But we might ramp it up for the ‘Nova game!)
