The #1 seeds proved no match for the #2 seeds in the Elite 8.
Both Villanova and Oklahoma took down the 1 seeds in their respective region, as both Oregon and Kansas went home early from this years tourney.
Now, the two #2 seeds will go at it in the Final Four on Saturday night.
#2 Villanova Wildcats
Villanova has been one of the hottest shooting teams in the tourney thus far.
They ran into the overall number 1 seed in Kansas, a team that was scorching hot. However, that meant nothing to them. The Big East runners up put the clamps down defensively on Kansas and held them to just 59 points in a 64-59 win.
Villanova led by 7 at the half and with the help of a late turnover, eventually sealed the deal and took down the #1 seed.
While the offensive side of things wasn’t totally there for the Wildcats, the defense sure did their part. Nova held the Jayhawks to just 6 of 22 shooting from behind the arc.
The turnover battle was also a key as they forced 16 turnovers. That will be a giant key in this one, as the Sooners have proven they have one of the best offenses in the nation. Getting them to turn it over and not allowing them extra shots would be a very vital ordeal.
#2 Oklahoma Sooners
With the Sooners being in the West Region, the Elite 8 was being held in Anaheim.
In attendance was Laker great Kobe Bryant. Buddy Hield said as soon as he saw Bryant, he knew it was showtime. That was exactly the case as Hield went off for 37 points as the Sooners steam rolled the Ducks.
Oklahoma held an 18 point half time lead, as this team was hitting shots from everywhere on the floor. As a team, Oklahoma shot 50% from behind the arc and 47% from the field.
The Sooners like to play a quicker paced game, which was actually in favor of Oregon. However, the defense of Oklahoma continued to shut down shooters and not let the Ducks get in any transition rhythm.
That will be a thing to watch for here, as Villanova plays a similar style game, wanting to get out and hoist the 3 ball.
These two teams met back on 12/7 of 2015 and Oklahoma absolutely dismantled the Wildcats 78-55. Hield ended up going for 18 points in the victory.

Free Villanova Wildcats vs. Oklahoma Sooners CBB Prediction:
This no doubt will be a much closer game than the 12/7 meeting.
The key is taking care of the ball here. Both teams use a high pressured defense that really likes to take chances. Whoever can take care of the ball and not turn it over, will be the team that doesn’t allow the easy transition buckets, which is ultimately what both teams will look to go for.
4* Free Final 4 Betting Pick: Villanova -2.5
The Wildcats are too talented on both ends of the floor here. Look for them to establish themselves defensively and close down Hield in this one.
