HERE’S WHY VILLANOVA GOT SCREWED OUT OF PLAYING IN PHILLY!

By Peter Gleason

A lot of Villanova fans think the NCAA tournament selection committee screwed the Wildcats by placing them in the South region, which precluded them from coming to Philly, if they make it past this weekend, for the East Regionals.

And Mr. Bracketologist, Joe Lumardi, thinks he knows why:

The committee is clearly protecting North Carolina from a potential regional final against Villanova (in Philadelphia) by moving the Wildcats to the South and Xavier to the East. Haven’t we been told for years that the committee doesn’t project matchups?

So Michigan State gets desired placement as a No. 2 seed, but the top Big East seeds don’t. I don’t get it, unless Rich Kotite got the committee’s mileage chart wet.

Aside: If Michigan State was a No. 1 seed, the committee wouldn’t be stuck flying the Southern/Holy Cross First Four winner to Spokane, Washington, as St. Louis would have been an available and a far more sensible alternative.
