Here’s A Prediction On The NCAA Tournament Field

The NCAA Selection show will be on Sunday and unfortunately Philadelphia won’t be represented nearly as well as it has been in the past. Only Villanova and Temple will be making an appearance. Neither is expected to last a long time, because the Wildcats have fallen on hard times and lost their last five games.

The lost to South Florida in the Big East tournament was a record loss. Nova had a 16 point-lead at the half and lost it, which is a record in the Big East tournament for the biggest lead that was held at the half by the losing team in Big East tournament history.

Fran Dunphy needs to grab his first tournament victory for Temple and any wins by Nova would be a surprise.
