PITTSBURGH, 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.
