Arkansas Runs Out Of Gas Falls in SEC Semifinals

Arkansas Runs Out Of Gas Falls in SEC Semifinals

Although the contest ended up as a 10-point game, overtime was just as close as the two regulation periods had been.

This is the first time in Big East history a team has played three straight overtime games.

In every year since the Big East realignment, either Villanova or Providence has been apart of the conference tournament championship. He can rebound with the best of them and step out to hit jumpers from deep.

But, Villanova is not the Pirates, and it limited what Baldwin and leading-scorer Kelan Martin were able to do all game. "They didn't miss to start the game".

"I think I was in the zone after probably my third 3", Gabriel said.

Butler head coach LaVall Jordan said he was proud of the way his team responded after the horrendous start, but against team like Villanova, you can't expect to dig out of a large hole. "And if you get into tough games in the tournament, you know you've been through it recently, and it is good for us".

Villanova: The Wildcats have won six of seven games and likely clinched a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

The Friars had a remarkable tournament, too, and one that will probably serve them well when the NCAAs begin. "They've got passion, and we believe".

For the second straight night Providence overcame a double-digit deficit to put a major scare into one of the top teams in the country.

West Virginia will be happy to play someone other than Kansas in the NCAA Tournament.

The Wildcats scored the game's first 19 points and cruised to an 87-68 victory. By the time Aaron Thompson got the Bulldogs on the board with 14:32 to go in the half, four different Wildcats had scored.

Brunson tied a career high with 31 points while Bridges - named the Dave Gavitt Award victor as Most Outstanding Player - added 25 points.

The Wildcats shot just 43.8 percent from the field but held Providence to 37.7 percent field-goal shooting and 26.1 percent from 3-point range.

Out of the under 12:00 television timeout, the Wildcats surged back into the lead, first behind a Bridges pull-up jumper followed by Brunson corner three, making the score 16-11.

The Friars evened the score at 11 on Diallo's third basket of the half, but the Wildcats came right back with a 10-0 run highlighted by Brunson and Bridges three-pointers to take a 21-11 lead. In 2016? They won the national championship. Nova went up four and never trailed again.

It was a valiant effort but the Providence College Friars fell to the Villanova Wildcats, 76-66 in overtime in the Big East Championship.

Kyron Cartwright hit a jumper with 1:38 left that tied the game at 58-all and Alpha Diallo scored on a driving layup with 40 seconds left for a 60-58 lead.

NEW YORK (AP) - As confetti fluttered down on a court still simmering from an epic title game, Jay Wright wrapped his arms around several Wildcats. "We had a great player pick up a loose ball and hit a three". It's obviously not great offense or anything.

What it was, in the end, was exactly what the Wildcats needed.

"That was one of our best defensive performances", he said.

"Sometimes, when you're playing really well, you play through this tournament and win, not easily but you don't have these kind of games". They put a bow on a fantastic season that should have them earn a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
