Bracket Projection: Villanova

Coach Jay Wright has developed his Villanova Wildcats into one of the best programs in all of college basketball. Over the past five seasons, Villanova has had as much regular-season success as any school in the nation. The Wildcats won the 2016 national championship, but that was their only trip beyond the first weekend of tournament play since 2010. Despite failing to win the Big East regular-season title for the first time since the conference shifted to its current alignment -- a wrong that was righted in some ways by VU's thrilling march to the Big East tournament title -- does this Villanova team have the goods to play late into March?
