When Villanova receives strong frontcourt play, it is a very difficult team to beat, and the Wildcats received exactly that in their first two games of the Big Dance. Center Eric Dixon scored in double figures in both games, while veteran forward Jermaine Samuels scored 15 and 17 points, respectively, in the Wildcats' two victories play tic tac toe over the Panthers in Pittsburgh. Nothing this team does will take your breath away, but it does a good job of sharing the ball, making shots, and establishing a distinct identity. In addition, Jay Wright, the Wildcats' head coach, has a winning record. It's difficult to bet against such a combination.
