Jerardi: At Villanova, seniors are proven winners
WEDNESDAY NIGHT, Villanova's seniors will play their penultimate home game. Their 123 (and counting) wins over the four seasons are a number that is almost hard to believe.



'Nova's offense returns and other Saturday games
IF THE NCAA Tournament selections were today, my four No. 1 seeds would be: Villanova (East), North Carolina (South), Kansas (Midwest), Gonzaga (West). Baylor has played its way off the top line. My longer-term prediction would be that the ACC champion, if it is UNC, Duke or Louisville, will be No. 1 in the South and the next ACC team from that group will be No. 2 in the East with Villanova.



Jerardi: This year's Big 5 Hall of Fame inductees in class of their own
I DON'T REMEMBER a stronger group of players in one Big 5 Hall of Fame class than Jameer Nelson (Saint Joseph's), Lynn Greer (Temple), Randy Foye (Villanova) and Ibrahim Jaaber (Penn). They combined for 7,677 points, 1,887 assists, 1,992 rebounds and 953 steals.

Jerardi: Early look at NCAA Tournament field
WITH NCAA Tournament selection chairman Mark Hollis set to reveal the committee's at-the-moment top four seeds in each region on CBS (Saturday, 12:30 p.m.) it seemed the right time to reveal my field of 68 at this moment, conference by conference.



Jerardi: Villanova remains on course for No. 1 seed
EVEN WITH Baylor and Kansas losing, nothing changes with my No. 1 seeds if the selections were now because so many teams just below lost as well.






Jerardi: St. Joe's has a shot despite Newkirk's absence
IF THE NCAA Tournament selections were now, my top four seeds would be pretty easy: East – Villanova South – Baylor



Dragons top Hofstra in overtime, 81-80
IT IS ONE of basketball's most agonizing moments. The clock is running, but, if you are playing or coaching, it feels as if time is standing still.
