In this ballgame initially I don’t think that line is high enough. He made solid entry passes to Batts, contributing to Batts career night. Two teams from this conference making it that far wouldn’t be overly shocking.
Villanova came into the 2010-11 season ranked No. 1 in the Big East by Athlon Sports. This high ranking comes one season after the Wildcats won the most games in franchise history (24) but still lost in the second round of the March Madness college basketball tournament to Saint Mary’s. While Villanova was expected to be highly competitive for the second season in a row, they still play in the Big East.
At night, Kentucky and Georgetown highlight the first string of games, as the Wildcats face East Tennessee State at 7:15 p.m., and the Hoyas take on Ohio at 7:25 p.m. Also, Marquette clashes with Washington at 7:20 p.m., and UNLV faces Northern Iowa.

Seventh-ranked Villanova plays at South Florida, just the fifth meeting all time between the schools.both of the previous games in Tampa have been decided by single-digit margins, however (both won by the Wildcats).each of USF’s nine losses this season have been decided by nine points or less, and they have held a lead in every game.
Nick: What am I, the AC legal correspondent? Do I look like Roger Cossack? Do I have slicked-back grey hair and glasses on and do I live in Bristol, Connecticut year-round at the ESPN studios just in case an athlete does something stupid so I can get some camera time? Do I have friends who’ve been dogfighters/killers and have gone to prison before? Am I here for your amusement?
The NCAA tournament sets out to redeem a season of parity – although that parity could have a lot of upsets early on. The first and second rounds are defined by upsets and finding Cinderellas, so this could be a day full of them, for all fans know.
