So obviously the big question about Villanova is whether or not this team can get out of the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament. The Wildcats can absolutely shoot it. They can play fast - probably could play faster - and defend well enough. But can they survive a bigger team or a lousy shooting night? That's going to be the question.
