West Virginia Mountaineers
West Virginia made easy work of Marshall on Sunday to punch its ticket to the Sweet Sixteen. Jevon Carter (28 points) was a star once again and the Mountaineers were balanced from there to win by over 20.
With all the upsets that have already happened, I would argue West Virginia is a top-5 team remaining in the NCAA Tournament, but now it’s pitted up against the best.
Jevon Carter vs. Jalen Brunson is going to be an absolute dog fight and I’m having a tough time imagining one guy getting a big upper hand on the other.
If West Virginia is going to win this game, it’s going to be a little different than how it’s won its first two games of the tournament. I believe the Mountaineers could beat ‘Nova on the boards.
If it crashes the offensive glass hard and doesn’t get beat in transition too many times, it has a shot. But it’s a long shot.
Villanova just looks bullet-proof these days. It rolled Alabama with a second half flurry that opened the game up by 30+.
Phil Booth only scored four points and there wasn’t a single individual who starred. The Wildcats continue to blow teams out with incredibly balanced efforts.
Omari Spellman’s rebounding will be important in this game. He must stay out of foul trouble. With Mikal Bridges and Eric Paschall helping on the glass, he should be just fine, as long as he stays on the court and can remain aggressive.
Villanova, meanwhile, will meets its match in terms of defense on the perimeter. West Virginia has athletes that can close out the three-point arc and match ‘Nova’s athleticism. At least as well as any team remaining in the tournament will.
But this is a well-oiled machine that looks like it won’t be stopped short of the Final Four. Boston should be all ‘Nova’s.

‘Nova is blowing out good teams. It may not lose West Virginia early, but I don’t see any reason to fear laying the points. In fact, it feels like a bargain.
