NCAA Tournament: Alabama vs. Villanova fearless prediction and game preview.

Game Time: 12:10 ET
Venue: PPG Paints Arena, Pittsburgh, PA
All You Really Need To Know About Alabama
Alabama managed to beat Virginia Tech 86-83 because it hit a few more free throws and a free more shots – with Collin Sexton responsible on both sides.
The Crimson Tide turn it over too much – 17 against the Hokies – and they’re just okay from three – even though they went 8-of-18 in the win. But the defense has been amazing, and the interior defense terrific.
All You Really Need To Know About Villanova
Villanova went Villanova on Radford, winning 87-61 in a breather. The Wildcats hit 52% from three, attacked the class for 34 rebounds, and hit 11-of-14 from the free throw line. They never let it become a game.
Ultra-careful with the ball, they don’t turn it over, and they’re amazing when they have to hit from three. It’s a deep, dangerous, explosive team that can turn the lights out in a hurry.
What’s Going To Happen
It’s been fun for Alabama through the SEC Tournament and with the win over the Hokies, but this Villanova team is too sharp. The Wildcats will hit their threes, and the Crimson Tide won’t.
