Villanova improvement lasts all the way to Final Four

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Cardinals are led by Asia Durr and Myisha Hines-Allen. All coaches agree, I think, that the wins never feel as good as the losses feel bad, but winning that one game certainly feels probably better than all the losses added up feels bad. The Bulldogs have won their four tournament games by 45, 15, 14 and 16 points.

Nevada head coach Eric Musselman, following his team's historic 22-point rally against Cincinnati back in the second round, let off at least four f-bombs in the Wolfpack's joyous locker room before network TV could turn off the audio. Both teams play pretty well and yet there were some things each team did that they don't normally do and still stayed in the game. Walz is used to having teams with star power; his 2009 team included standout Angel McCoughtry. Bridges is the x-factor.

While Stamper is not able to actually play with his team, that has not stopped him from being a full-time contributor.

If they do that then they'll be right there at the end of the game.

"They're ready. They've had good practices". "But you know, when you really put it into perspective, hey, down nine (points) with under 2 (minutes) left and winning that game, or the first three possessions we had in overtime, which that was as good as we had executed all year long, and making those plays".

"If you go this far, don't you want to go ahead and finish the job", Self said.

If there has been anything traditional about this tournament, it has been the notion that defense wins championships. The most notable setback was in 2010, the first of the Jayhawks' four straight 30-win seasons, when as the No. 1 overall seed they fell to Northern Iowa in the second round.

Who Pays for Meghan Markle's Designer Clothes?
Upon seeing display stand adorned with baby products, Meghan said: "I'm sure at some point we'll need the whole thing". While the insider did not reveal which friend Markle chose for the position, we think we have a pretty good hunch.

They understand the task in front of them facing Mississippi State. Each are both powerhouse schools with plenty of postseason experience, but only one will get the opportunity to reach the National Championship.

They won the three upsets by a total of four points. UConn has a roster full of All-Americans including Gabby Williams, Napheesa Collier and Katie Lou Samuelson, the latter who is a strong candidate for the Naismith Player of the Year Award. "I would have loved to have gone on this ride as a player". Sam Fuehring, a 6-3 center, has played well this season, averaging 10.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. Others include Wildcats guard Phil Booth, Wolverines point guard Zavier Simpson and Ramblers regional hero Ben Richardson.

He says his team has consistently improved to earn its spot. That season, the Wolverines lost to Louisville in the national title game.

The gritty win over Texas Tech in the Elite Eight proved to Brunson how tough this current group of Wildcats has become. This means that Intertops is well committed to helping you make the most of this Final Four betting round. These two will need to sink some big shots to keep up with UConn's sharp shooters.

The Jayhawks return to the Final Four for the first time since 2012 listed as a +325 bet on the national championship odds, but are winless SU and ATS in their past two against Villanova, including a 64-59 defeat as two-point chalk in Elite Eight action two years ago.

Depending on your view of NCAA sanctions, that club could have an additional member.
