These two teams already tangled once this season, about four months ago when Oklahoma trounced ‘Nova, 78-55, on neutral ground in Hawaii. In that contest Oklahoma’s star player Buddy was flat, putting up only 18 points. The Wildcats better not expect that to happen again. Buddy is having the best March of his life. He is averaging almost 30 points per game and dropped 8 treys and finished with 37 points in Oklahoma’s Elite Eight win over Oregon.
So how did Villanova find it’s way into this big game? Defense, that’s how. If you think you can score on the Wildcats in the post-season, good luck. The Cats have been keeping opponents to less than 70 points in March and beat Kansas by stifling their strong 3-point capabilities. Villanova is getting hot at the right time and although few expect them to win, they have a great shot at revenge on the Sooners by continuing the suffocating D.
