Alabama Defeats Virginia Tech In The First Round — March Madness

18 March, 2018, 01:20 | Author: Priscilla Morrison
  • Kansas&apos Marcus Garrett gets past Kansas State's Amaad Wainright to put up a shot during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game in the semifinals of the Big 12 conference tournament in Kansas City Mo. Friday

"As of right now, you're upset that we lost, and that's kind of all that's really on the mindset right now", Wilson said.

Our March Madness betting odds opened with Villanova set as an 11-point favourite. It was Avery Johnson of Alabama, who just saw something in the team's guard, Collin Sexton.

No. 1 Villanova has a Sweet 16 berth in sight. This might be incredible. Their teams are approaching it from different angles as well. While the Wildcats can return to the Sweet 16 for the second time in three years, a win for the Crimson Tide would get them to the tournament's second week for the first time since 2004.

Sexton, likely playing in his last NCAA Tournament game, is no stranger to trash talk.

Alabama was led, as usual, by its star point guard Collin Sexton.

Wes Clark scored 25 points, Jeremy Harris added 23 and No. 13 seed Buffalo pulled off the biggest upset of the NCAA tournament's opening round, rolling over No. 4 seed Arizona 89-68 in the South region Thursday night.

However, as the second round gets underway on Saturday, these four squads will face much tougher challenges. Hall did in fact play, and boy did he make an impact.

Jalen Hudson scored 16 points and Chris Chiozza had 11 assists for the sixth-seeded Gators (21-12), who have reached the Elite Eight the past five times they've been in the tournament. "I have such a wealth of resources now because of this two-game experience". "He was playing with the college students".

Weird things happen in the NCAA Tournament. We care about the brackets, the winners, the dramatic endings, all that. And so we need to continue to get reps at that.

National Basketball Association scouts are going to fill up their allotment for this game at PPG Paints Arena on Saturday afternoon. "And just didn't come out on the end we wanted to". They have all great pieces around him. N.C. State has exceeded expectations under first-year coach Kevin Keatts; next season might be the time for a first-round victory. Davidson (21-11), 7:10 p.m., CBS: Coach John Calipari feels his team was seeded incorrectly and unjustly placed in a remote site. And beyond that, Brunson is rightfully elevated by Villanova's overall strength.

Brunson entered this season as a reasonable choice to be an All-American.

No Alabama player scored in double digits other than Sexton. Petty moved and made some plays, Donta, Galin, guys were just moving.

The Crimson Tide scored 34 points in the paint. But styles make fights.

"Honestly, he just told me that he believed in me", Sexton said. We're going to approach this the same way. Fifth-seeded Kentucky (25-10) went 0 for 6 from behind arc after hitting a 3 in a nation-best streak of 1,047 games. One issue this season has been free-throw shooting, and that was on display Thursday as the Crimson Tide were 18-for-27. "I thought it was a block".

"He was probably just disappointed", Johnson said of the technical. I'm expecting a lot of points. Their opponents are a +500 to +575 underdog at several sports books, while the over/under points total is 148 points. But that's what it is.

Villanova (31-4) played to near-perfection for the first 30 minutes, and everyone played a role.

"Obviously we're very different", Brunson said. But it's really about Villanova versus Alabama. That's what we focus on the most. The Zags do it with balance (five double-figure scorers) and great shooting (50.3 percent). Sexton now transitions to getting his mind - and teeth - straight.

"I'm good", he said. "It's shaking a little bit". The players do too. "That's great prep for this [tournament]". Offense, it comes natural to us.
