This match-up features a very small school going up against a pretty big university with lots of blue chip talent. Asheville is where about 3,500 students receive their higher education while Villanova in Pennsylvania, has a student body of nearly 11,000.
If you have picked Asheville in this game, get ready for your bracket to be busted up on day one. The only chance Villanova may lose this first round match-up is if every player on their team eats bad fish for dinner and they all fall ill before the game. Otherwise, forget it Asheville fans.
The Asheville Bulldogs are not as bad as the point spread implies. They have a balanced offense with all five starters averaging double figures. Led by 6’2″, super hot, sophomore guard Kevin Vannatta, the Bulldogs are going to keep the score much closer than Vegas may think.
But it is March Madness and Asheville is like every other team in the NCAA Tournament, only a pair of wild wins away from the sweet sixteen. Villanova is #2 for a reason. When Wildcats guard Josh Hart touches the ball, he usually scores. The junior puts up over 15 points per game so look for him to cruise with his team deep into the tournament.
