Villanova Stuns Pittsburgh 78-76

I’m still think about this game from last night and I didn’t get to see it because I was in New York City, but I was on ESPN on my phone getting the info. through auto refresh. I got to see the highlights and the game was crazy. Shane Reynolds made a heroic shot with 0.5 seconds left in the game, then Pitt. had one last shot. Lavarence Fields got the last shot from the end of the court and nearly made it as it hit the glass of the backboard on the opposite end of the court. Nova stunned a lot of people who thought Pittsburgh would win. Now it’s off to the final four and to wait for UNC or Oklahoma.

Villanova Routs UCLA 89-69

This game did not look like it would have been a blow out but it was. Villanova was just on point like a pencil throughout the whole game. UCLA just did not look fit to play the Wildcats today. Nova played tremendous defense and offense today. Scottie Reynolds and Dante Cunningham led the Wildcats to a 89-69 blow out of the Bruins.

SYRACUSE BEATS UCONN IN 6-OT’S

syracuse

I’m actually upset because I did not see the whole game last night. It was meant to be a great match-up in the Big East Tournament but who would have thought that it would reach 6 overtimes to get a winner? Well Syracuse and Connecticut put on a show for the fans in Madison Square Garden last night. It was close throughout the whole game. Close to the end of the game Syracuse’s Eric Devendorf had a chance to win the game but a controversial call sent the game to overtime. A three pointer by Devendorf was still in his hands, said officials as they reviewed the play. The game was sent into overtime, then a second, then a third, until the game was decided in the sixth overtime period. Syracuse went off and scored 17 in the period and UCONN only put up 7 points and the Orangemen eliminated UCONN from the Big East Tourney 127-117. It was the longest game in big East Tournament history.

Villanova Edges Marquette in Big East Tourney

Villanova had a somewhat comfortable lead against Marquette today and almost gave up the game. The Golden Eagles rallied back and even took the lead in the last stretch of the game. Nov had one last chance and a reverse lay-up by Dwayne Anderson as time expired won the game and is sending Villanova into a semi-finals game versus Louisville tomorrow night. It was exciting game and had a great end.

St. Johns Defeats Georgetown in Big East Tourney

Well, any hope of making the NCAA tournament for Georgetown this year is like Ron Browz’s hit song “Jumpin out the Window.” In the first game of the Big East Conference Championship tournament, St. John’s was placed against Georgetown last night at Madison Square Garden in New York. Just about the only way to enter the NCAA tournament for Georgetown was to win this tournament. Well, Parish Horne and St. John’s thought otherwise. Horne dropped 23 points as he lead St. John’s to its first victory in the tourney since 2003. The Red Storm won the game 64-59.
