Villanova-NC State and Butler-Notre Dame in Pittsburgh


Site Preview PittsburghPITTSBURGH, PA – The Third Round kicks off in Pittsburgh Saturday night with two teams coming in off Second Round victories that could not have been more different: The top-seeded Villanova Wildcats could do nothing wrong as they rolled over Lafayette, while 8th-seeded NC State needed last-second heroics to pull-out a one-point win over LSU.

Saturday’s slate of games will culminate with an all-Indiana affair, as 6th-seeded Butler takes on 3rd-seeded Notre Dame.  Major questions still linger about the health of Bulldog leader, Roosevelt Jones, after he sustained a knee injury early in Thursday’s contest with Texas.  Meanwhile, the Fighting Irish will try to get off to a faster start than they did against Northeastern in the Second Round.

Tune into Westwood One Sports, where you can hear Scott Graham and Kevin Grevey call all of the action from the Consol Energy Center.
