NCAA Tournament: Jalen Brunson vs. Collin Sexton is the duel we deserve

NCAA Tournament: Jalen Brunson vs. Collin Sexton is the duel we deserve

No. 9 seed Alabama will face No. 1 seed Villanova, which defeated No. 16 Radford, in the East Region's second round at 11:20 a.m. Saturday (WCBI).

The Tide were carried to victory by Collin Sexton and John Petty, who made some clutch shots down the stretch.

Justin Robinson had team highs in points (19), assists (7) and steals (4) for the Hokies.

We projected Villanova (31-4) to beat First Four victor and No. 16 Radford 85-62 in the first round, and the final was 87-61 in the Wildcats' sixth straight victory - 87 points is what the nation's top-ranked offence averaged during the season. The Crimson Tide had the fourth-youngest roster in the Division I this past season and bring in another solid recruiting class along with Texas transfer Tevin Mack, who averaged 14.8 points and 4.8 rebounds a season ago.

Omari Spellman scored five points in the game's opening three minutes to help Villanova grab an early 5-0 lead.

Villanova placed six players in double figures, with National Player of the Year candidate Jalen Brunson leading the way with 16 points. No. 15 Lipscomb and No. 1 Xavier (-19.5) vs. "Also, I got to finish school, and I'm trying to finish with a 4.0 [grade-point average]".

Evans can do it all for the Red Raiders.

Ninth-seeded Alabama (20-15) took the lead for good with 7:50 to go.

Second-seeded Duke will face a unsafe and veteran Rhode Island team, while Kentucky takes on 13th-seeded Buffalo - which blew out Arizona on Thursday. The Wildcats are first in the country in Pomeroy's efficiency rankings, first in effective field-goal percentage, second in two-point percentage, 11th in three-point percentage and 12th in turnover percentage.

Miami Dolphins Will Release Ndamukong Suh
Suh was voted to the Pro Bowl only once while in Miami and was named second-team All-Pro in the same season (2016). Of course, Suh began his career in the Motor City, which is why the Lions on this list is one that's intriguing.

Defensively, Buffalo neutralized Arizona's size inside by collapsing on the paint, forcing the Wildcats to shoot from the perimeter.

It fell under a pile of 3-pointers from one of the nation's best teams. The Hokies, who made their first back-to-back trips to the NCAA tournament since 1985-86, are still seeking their first tournament win since 2007.

The No. 5 Clemson Tigers could be on upset alert in the final game of the Round of 64 as 5-point favorites over the No. 12 Aggies. They finished with 63. They'll next play Loyola-Chicago on Saturday. Although the Hokies made a buzzer-beating layup, it wasn't enough. This year, they went 10-8 in ACC play for the third straight season.

Kevin Knox scored 25 for Kentucky, which next plays the Arizona-Buffalo victor. Egor Koulechov finished with 20 points, four threes and six rebounds.

Did oddsmakers set the over/under for Saturday's Alabama and Villanova second-round March Madness matchup too low?

Ingram's long shot came from well above the key.

That shot gave Villanova the momentum it needed to pull away from Alabama. He hit a championship clinching shot, for the Spurs against the Knicks in 1999 and coached the Mavericks and the Nets - all because he always managed to make someone believe he had his own "it" factor.

The victor advances to the regional semifinals in Boston, most likely to face either No. 4 Wichita State or No. 5 West Virginia.

Brunson is the heady veteran, the probable eventual victor of multiple National Player of the Year honors.
