Looking Ahead: St. Mary's
Alright here are my thoughts on the game:
Villanova Wins If: They are able to find the balance between interior and perimeter defense. St. Mary's center Omar Samhan averages 24 points and 12 rebounds a game, If Villanova let's him dominate the glass it will be a long night. Interior scoring is not the only facet of St. Mary's game. Matt Dellavedova and Mickey McConnell can both stroke it from the perimeter. It all will start with how Mouph handles Samhan though. If they are able to deny him opportunities, Villanova has a very good chance to win this game.
Villanova Loses If: They're lit up from outside, foul too much and are crushed on the defensive glass. If Scottie shoots like he did against Robert Morris, we're fucked.
Scottie Watch: Scottie Reynolds now needs only 30 points to pass Kerry Kittles. Judging by the law of averages, it will take a win against St. Mary's to make that happen.
