The 2016 Miami Hurricanes began the tournament with a 79-72 victory over Buffalo. Miami then took care of Wichita State as an underdog in the second round. Head Coach Jim Larranaga has been here before both win UM and nearly a decade ago with George Mason. Production from Senior Center Tonye Jekiri will be the determining factor for Miami. If he can hold his own in the post, the “CANES” will be hard to beat. The combination of point guard Angel Rodriguez and shooting guard Sheldon McClellan must hold their own against a talented Villanova backcourt. McClellan is the team’s top scorer, averaging 16.0 ppg. Angel Rodriguez dishes out a team-best 4.4 assists per game. The Hurricanes bench must come to play if they want to advance. Rodriguez was spectacular vs. Wichita State. The former Kansas State transfer outplayed Fre Van Vleet of Wichita State. 6’6″ swingman Davon Reed must bury open jump shots. The key to a Miami victory is to concentrate on what has gotten them to this point. Defense is the reason they are in the Sweet 16.
The Villanova Wildcats North Carolina-Asheville in the opening round. The Wildcats demolished a good Iowa team in the second round at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn. Villanova put the Iowa Hawkeyes away in the middle of the first-half. They stole the will of Iowa, but Miami will be a much tougher task. Head Coach Jay Wright remembers last year’s March Madness early exit. It’s Final Four or bust for the Wildcats. Villanova spent about three weeks as the number-one team in the nation. They also lost the chance at a number-one seed in their Big East tournament finals loss to Seton Hall. The Villanova Wildcats are right where they want to be. Senior Guard and top assist man Ryan Arcidiacono is the “HEART AND SOUL” of Villanova. Freshman Jalen Brunson will create havoc at both ends of the court. Leading scorer Josh Hart is also going to be a handful for the Miami backcourt. The key to a Villanova win is to win the battle in the post.
The Betting Over The Total is 9-2 Miami last eleven NCAA Tournament games.
Villanova is 4-6 Against The Point Spread their last ten overall.
