What can Bruce Brown do for you?

If you're Miami, quite a bit. He's coming in with big man Dewan Huell, but Brown is ready to play now. He'll be needed, too, with the exodus of veteran guards from South Florida. 2016-17's best freshmen (Insider)

Huell could play big role for Canes

With Tonye Jekiri and Ivan Cruz Uceda gone next season, Miami may depend on Dewan Huell (No. 23 overall, ESPN 100). The incoming forward will play in Wednesday's McDonald's All-American Game (9 p.m. ET on ESPN). Who to watch (Insider)

Villanova to Elite 8 with win over Miami

The 2nd-seeded Wildcats built a 6-point halftime lead then never looked back, cruising to the Elite 8 with a 92-69 win. Nova's 23-point win tied the school's largest margin of victory in the Sweet 16. Box score

Villanova fans on their feet, behind the team huddle they can taste this Elite Eight berth being up 20 and 3:27 left.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Miami can't get the stops they need to get back closer. Nova has too many weapons offensively. Doesn't help that Jekiri playing with four fouls will keep him a timid rim protector

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Miami in danger of letting the game get away down 11 and watching Villanova make all the 50-50 plays. Effort was typified by Darryl Reynolds tipping a rebound out that led to Arcidiacono basket

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

After 2.5 tournament games, Villanova is hitting 53 percent of its 3s and scoring 1.32 points per possession. That'll do.
