NCAA Tournament Radford vs Villanova

Posted March 18, 2018

The 11th-seeded Bonnies (26-7) will play sixth-seeded Florida (20-12) in Dallas on Thursday night in the East Region. Radford is in the tourney for the third time ever and the first since 2009. Radford lost three in a row in early February but finished with four straight wins. Kansas was the last program to accomplish this feat from 2010-13. With 16:35 left to go, back-to-back 3-pointers gave the Blackbirds a 38-35 lead, their first advantage since they led 3-2 at the 19:17 mark in the first half. The victor gets No. 1 Villanova on Thursday.

The Wildcats won their fifth in a row with the victory over the Friars.

Nova has the nation's top offense behind two future National Basketball Association players in Big East Player of the Year Jalen Brunson (19.4 ppg) and Mikal Bridges (18.0 ppg, 5.4 rpg), who actually will be the higher draft pick.

He recently suffered a hand injury and just made it back for the Big East tournament. Not only did the Highlanders lose to all three power-conference foes they faced this season by 10 or more points, the best team they beat all season was probably UC Davis in overtime.

Radford's Christian Bradford opened the game with a 3-pointer and the bench erupted. Travis Fields Jr. added 13 points for the Highlanders. If Nova reaches the Final Four, it will set a Division record for wins in a four-year span (Gonzaga also could). Sixteen-seeds, LIU Brooklyn and Radford tipped off first, while 11-seeds, UCLA and St. Bonaventure played later that night.
