They’ve made us wait a few days, but finally March Madness is back! The NCAA Tournament returns on Mar. 24, with this exciting match-up as Miami Hurricanes takes on Villanova Wildcats at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky. Which college will get past the Sweet Sixteen? Click down for the live stream to find out!
#3 seed Miami has looked every inch a Final Four team, avoiding any potential upsets by defeating #14 seed Buffalo 79-72 in the First Round, then #11 seed Wichita State 65-57. But #2 seed Villanova has been demolishing teams on route to this Sweet Sixteen appearance. They destroyed UNC Asheville 86-56, then battered Iowa 87-68.
Villanova is a team that’s showing absolutely no mercy at the moment, and they will take some beating. Junior Josh Hart and super cute senior guard Ryan Arcidiacono will be the two men the Wildcats will be looking for to score the majority of their points.
However, Miami has their own strong guards in Angel Rodriguez and Sheldon McClellan who showed their class in that Wichita State win. Angel, especially, demonstrated his talents to score inside and outside. He’s being tipped for great things, and has already been a standout performer at the NCAA Tournament.
Both teams boast great regular season records too, which makes this all the more intriguing. Miami has 27 wins to 7 losses, while Villanova has 31 wins and only 5 defeats. Someone though will have to go home empty-handed in their quest for the championship.
This is a game that could go either way, both are great teams and it should be a great example of the way college basketball should be played.
