Villanova Tops Providence In OT For 2nd Straight Big East Title

Villanova Tops Providence In OT For 2nd Straight Big East Title

But no matter what they tried, it wasn't enough to win that area of the game, which proved to be as crucial as any.

So Providence showed up with a daring genius coach, its unyielding belief and the heart of a giant lion. With 2:23 left in the half, the lead was 37-23, and neither of Brunson's replacements, sophomore Dante DiVincenzo and freshman Collin Gillespie, had more than two points.

Providence missed a last-gasp shot at the buzzer and played in its third straight overtime game.

After a very un-Villanova end to the season, which saw them go 5-3 down the stretch to give away the Big East regular season crown have once again quieted the doubters with an absurdly efficient 1.35 points per possession the last two games.

Edwards' ability to slow Brunson's dribble penetration was a big reason why Providence held Villanova to 60 points in regulation. Redshirt junior guard Phil Booth played the most minutes (29) for VU.

And Bridges lay down to pose for a photo on the court with mascot Will D. Cat and the cheerleaders, before hugging a woman named Kim Barben, his old 10th-grade European history teacher, who had come rushing down from her seat to the edge of the court to tell him: "I'm so proud of you!"

Bridges continued to make an argument for Player of the Tournament with 18 points on the night, following a 25-point output in their previous matchup against Marquette. I don't know what happened. Everyone has confidence in him. "The start defensively I think was the difference for us". "When they had a chance to distance themselves we got back in it, and we played nearly flawless down the stretch".

Neymar indeed wants a Barcelona return
Neymar is now recovering from an operation on his foot in Brazil after suffering a broken metatarsal last month. The Brazilian has been out of action since being on the end of a bad tackle against Marseille on February 25.

Modest understatement there. The Jayhawks shot 72 percent from the field in the second half, and 56 percent for the game, while going 15 of 27 from beyond the 3-point arc.

"[Xavier coach] Chris Mack had the greatest line", Wright said.

"Khyri (Thomas) is one of the best defenders in the country, it was a chess match", Cooley said.

The Friars have a No. 42 spot on the RPI Index and have dealt one of four losses (by nine points) for Xavier. Ask Xavier. No lead is safe against them. Richard Reed scored 13 points and Jalen Hall added 12 points to lead Bellevue.

When you get so into the game you rip your trousers... Being in tough games in these environments, in these arenas, sometimes people can crumble. "It's kind of eating at me, but you just have to put it in the past and move on I guess". In that game, Cartwright scored 19 points, but more importantly added 9 assists and 4 rebounds. Isaiah Jackson made 1-of-2 foul shots with 0.5 left to ice the victory. "It just happened", Cartwright said with a smile.

Cartwright tied it with a fallaway jumper near the left corner with the shot clock expiring.

In a game that will help pad his case for national player of the year, Brunson was an ice-cold assassin for Villanova (30-4).
