Villanova was clean as usual in its first test against Radford. The ‘Cats covered the big number and cruised into the Round of 32, where it meets Alabama.
The key for ‘Nova in this game will be extinguishing any extra confidence Alabama has coming into this game after a thrilling win over Virginia Tech that saw both Collin Sexton and John Petty hit some feel-good shots.
Sexton went off in the second half but things will be different with Jalen Brunson in front of him. Villanova always finds a way to exploit its opponent where its weakness is and I expect the very same thing in this game against a talented Alabama team, but one that’s far from perfect.
Alabama Crimson Tide
Alabama was down by two at the half to Virginia Tech and it was close all the way to the end but two big possessions swung the game in the final minute.
John Petty hit the first big shot — his sixth three that broke the tie and put the Tide up for good. Sexton followed it with a great isolation move and finish at the rim.
Those are the two blue-chip recruits Avery Johnson brought in this season and will rely on to win this game. But they played a lot of isolation ball against Virginia Tech.
That won’t be enough against the great team defense of Villanova.
