Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Villanova Wildcats Odds Preview 03/17/18

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

It's harder to breathe. "We need to continue to get reps at that". "Just to make sure we come into this game ready and that's what we did".

Not exactly the last impression someone wants to make before turning pro, and probably not the type of image the University of Alabama wants to project to the rest of the country after making it back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012. They beat No. 12 seed IL in the first round.

No. 3 Tennessee (26-8) vs.

Virginia Tech lost despite canning 56 percent of its shots, including 9 of 18 3-point attempts.

"The coaches prepare us for stuff like this", Sexton said. "The journey's just beginning".

Donte DiVincenzo steadied Villanova with three straight 3s that brought a gasp from the crowd and gave the Wildcats a 22-15 lead.

Davidson (21-12) made 11 3-pointers, led by six from Jon Axel Gudmundsson, who finished with 21 points.

Sexton wouldn't say definitely that he was going pro after Alabama's loss, but his body language screamed it at the end of regulation. We were just really trying to focus on defending and rebounding. Justin Bibbs scored 17 points and Nickeil Alexander-Walker added 15 points.

The fifth-year senior starred at nearby Montour High School on both the hardwood and gridiron.

Alabama's coach knows how much his young players love the National Basketball Association and he tells them stories about it. They ended up hitting 59.6 per cent and 14-for-27 from 3-point range.

Villanova started the game shooting 13 of 16.

Alabama shot a scorching 60 percent (30-of-50) from the field, including knocking down eight three-pointers in the contest. It was the best percentage by a Tech foe since North Carolina State shot 64.1 percent in a January 2017 win over the Hokies. The Crimson Tide's point guard commands a very different style than Brunson. I think Jalen, Phil and Mikal know that Collin, Dada and those guys are going to be the ones to carry on their tradition and legacy and they take pride in their responsibility to teach those guys. There was a lot to be learned, and much to be remembered for next season. Alabama has one of the more dynamic players in College Basketball in Collin Sexton and has been led by their defense this season which ranks 109th in scoring defense, 42nd in defensive FG%, and 9th in blocks per game.

The proof came during the second half. Buzz Williams' squad kept Sexton under wraps for the first half but they let John Petty out of the bottle, as he went 3/3 from behind the arc and led Alabama with 9 points at halftime.

"He's so long and can really, really shoot", Williams said.

It was over when: Dazon Ingram hit one of two free throws to give Alabama an 86-79 lead with 17.9 seconds remaining, too big a hole for Virginia Tech to climb out of.

Key to those two series wins for the Hokies was winning Game 1 - they have never won an ACC series in Atlanta after dropping the first game. "Our adjustment on the pick-and-roll coverage helped us stay in better position".

Player of the game: Sexton.

Williams was so mad about the call that he was whistled for a technical foul.

"I shouldn't have had the towel in my hand". When he was asked the other day how he looked at the latter experience, he said, "I don't look at that experience at all".
