I was at the game on Saturday and it was a great game - alot of energy in the building and you could see that Texas needed to go through a couple of games like that to prepare them for the NCAA tourney. Durant definitely looks like a PTPer as Dicky V. would say but I'm surprised that Rick Barnes didn't stop him from taking those illadvised shots from way outside the 3 point line - I think if they had gotten the ball to Augustine and Abrams more in the first half, it may have been a different story. I'm surprised that Villanova was able to keep up without Sumpter in the lineup because he is usually the one to hold the team together but Scottie Reynolds played over his head and allowed us to pull it off. Hopefully we can keep it up and make it to the tourney and maybe we will meet again.

Villanova has progressed tremendously over the course of this season. Picked in the preseason ranked 20 or so because of Nardi and Sumpter, they are winning games because 1) Reynolds has picked up his game; 2) Clark and Cunningham have picked up their game and 3) they can and do shut down the inside presence of opposing big men (Durant of Texas, Hibbert of Georgetown, the big guy at Providence, etc). They are starting to put together impressive wins on the road as well. They are coming along and will probably make a lot of noise come March.
