2017 NCAA Tournament Villanova vs. Wisconsin game preview
Mount Saint Mary’s gave No. 1 Villanova a little bit of a test early in Thursday’s contest, but the Wildcats managed to pull away and never looked back as they cruised to a 76-56 win.
Villanova was propelled by five double-digit scorers, including Donte DiVincenzo who scored 21 points in 37 minutes off the bench. The size difference between the two teams was evident as Villanova pulled down 43 rebounds to Mount Saint Mary’s 27, including taking 29 of 29 defensive rebound opportunities.
Wisconsin had a bit of a tougher test but came out similarly comfortable, beating No. 9 Virginia Tech 84-74.
Wisconsin also had success on the boards, but it was really the perimeter offense that allowed it to put down the Hokies. The Badgers shot 41.9 percent from 3-point range, led by guard Bronson Koenig, who hit 8 of 17 from beyond the arc.
Koenig, the Badgers’ leading scorer with 14.5 points per game, finished with a team-high 28 points. Nigel Hayes also had an impressive first-round performance, netting a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds.
