2022 Tournament PreviewThe Big East tournament champs, Villanova remains a cast with Final Four potential under coach Jay Wright. Senior guard Collin Gillespie (15.9 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 3.3 apg) leads a balanced offense with four double-digit scorers that ranks eighth in efficiency, per KenPom. Gillespie shoots 42.2 percent from three-point range with a team-high 98 treys, while fellow senior guard Caleb Daniels knocks down 39.2 percent. The Wildcats lack a traditional center, with no rotation player taller than 6-8, but rebounding hasn't suffered, as they remain in the top half of the country in both offensive and defensive rebounding rates. The Wildcats are elite at closing out games, shooting 82.3 percent from the foul line -- tops in the nation. Villanova is solid defensively too, ranking 28th in KenPom's efficiency metric. With eight Quad 1 wins, along with elite coaching and experience, this team could do some damage.
