About No. 1 seed Villanova
Villanova got a good scare from West Virginia and its pesky pressure defense, but the Wildcats’ experience and talent — led by Jalen Brunson — proved to be too much for the Mountaineers. Nova may not only have the most lethal offense in the Tournament, but may also be the best team remaining in the field.

About No. 3 seed Texas Tech
Texas Tech’s physicality on defense overwhelmed Purdue and its talented backcourt in the Sweet 16, as the Red Raiders forced 17 turnovers and disrupted the Boilermakers’ plans in the frontcourt. Their defense ranks third in adjusted efficiency this season, according to data from KenPom, and is the single-biggest reason why they have a legitimate shot at taking down the giant that is Villanova.
