People are still talking about that last second NCAA Championship winning shot that Kris Jenkins made after getting the pass Ryan Arcidiancono, who was sprung open by a pick set by center Daniel Ochefu as the nation watched.
Andy Katz of ESPN had Jenkins, Arcidiacono and Ochefu reenact the play to see if they could do […]

The Nova Win Was Truly One For The Ages

It was a classic game with a historic finish and it gave Villanova their second NCAA Championship. It wasn’t as unexpected as the one in 1985, but the finish was just as or more spectacular.  No one could have written a more exciting script for the finish as each team hit dramatic three-pointers with the […]

Nova Blows Out The Sooners, Now The Tar Heels

It was the biggest margin of victory in the history of the Final Four.  The Villanova Wildcats blew the Oklahoma Sooners out of the water in their semifinal battle by the score of 95-51, while going on scoring an amazing 25 consecutive points in the second half to make it an historic blow out.

Could Oklahoma’s Buddy Hield Be The Answer For The Sixers?

It’s all on the line tomorrow for Villanova as they take on sharpshooter Buddy Hield and the Oklahoma Sooners.   Nova will need to depend on their defense to help them win the battle tomorrow and get to the Championship game on Monday night.

Temple Gets Pushed Out Of The Tournament

Woodbury […]

Temple Owls Come Close To Pulling The Upset, But Lose 24-20

Last night’s contest between the Temple Owls and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish was the biggest game in the history of Temple Owls football.  In the end the Owls came up a bit short, but there’s no question that they are one of the better teams in the nation.  The football squad wearing the Cherry […]

College Football Week In Review

I have learned not to get overly excited or put too much hype on any one game during the year, but this Alabama Texas A&M game will be a memorable one when we look back on turning points for both teams. Looking back I said Texas A&M would score points, but Alabama would score more. […]
