VILLANOVA: Last season: 36-4, won third national championship in school history.
Nickname: Wildcats
Coach: Jay Wright
Conference: Big East
Who's gone: Point guard Jalen Brunson, F Omari Spellman, F Mikal Bridges, G Donte DiVincenzo are all in the NBA.
Who's back: Guard Phil Booth, the last major link to the 2016 title team, returns for a fifth season. He averaged 10 points and made 10 starts for the Big East Tournament title team. He's going to be counted on to lead a team that will try and develop four sophomores into stars. Collin Gillespie, Jermaine Samuels, Dylan Painter and Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree all need to emerge into solid rotation players for the Wildcats to have a shot at a repeat.
Who's new: Freshman Jahvon Quinerly, a five-star recruit, is expected to follow Brunson as Villanova's next great point guard and graduate transfer Joe Cremo is expected to provide needed depth after he scored 1,469 points in three years at Albany.
The Skinny: The Wildcats are ranked ninth in The AP Top 25 and should again contend to win the Big East. The Wildcats are reloading after losing four stars to the NBA. But an elite program like Villanova just replaces talent with talent and the Wildcats are expected to keep rolling deep into March.
Expectations: Las Vegas oddsmakers have Villanova as a 10-1 shot to win the NCAA Tournament. But no team has been able to repeat since Florida in 2006 and 2007.
PURDUE: Last season: 30-7, lost to Texas Tech in regional semifinals of the NCAA Tournament.
Nickname: Boilermakers
Coach: Matt Painter
Conference: Big Ten
Who's gone: Forward Vince Edwards, center Isaac Haas, guard Dakota Mathias, guard P.J. Thompson.
Who's back: Guard Carsen Edwards (18.5 points per game) was the leading scorer on a senior-dominated team and became the lead vote-getter on the preseason All-American team after withdrawing from the NBA draft. Guard Nojel Eastern (2.9 points, 2.5 rebounds) showed steady improvement as a freshman and will try to fill the void left by Vince Edwards. Energetic forward Matt Haarms played dominant defense last season (3.2 rebounds, 2.1 blocks in 17.1 minutes) and has spent the summer refining his offensive moves. Guard Ryan Cline (4.0 ppg) has primarily been used as a 3-point specialist off the bench but should play a bigger role in his final college season.
Who's new: Freshman Eric Hunter Jr. and redshirt freshman Aaron Wheeler are expected to make the biggest impact. Hunter, a 6-foot-3 guard, scored nearly 2,600 points in high school, finished his career as the career scoring leader in Marion County (Indianapolis) and should help add the scoring punch Purdue needs. Wheeler is not the Boilermakers prototypical 6-9 forward. Long and slender, he uses length to his advantage and is more athletic than some of his predecessors.
The Skinny: It won't be the same without the four seniors, but the Boilermakers still have scorers, size, depth and defenders. Painter is too good of a coach to accept a significant drop-off, even after losing so many key players. And with Edwards, perhaps the best player in the Big Ten, leading the way, steady improvement could keep Purdue in the Big Ten title mix again.
Expectations: Las Vegas doesn't expect the Boilermakers to be the same. But they're not completely off the bandwagon, either. They've installed Purdue as a 60-1 shot to win the national title, fourth among conference teams behind only the two Michigan schools and rival Indiana.
Purdue faces big test against defending champ Villanova

Purdue faces quite the obstacle in its path toward a third consecutive Sweet 16 appearance in the form of reigning national champion Villanova.

The third-seeded Boilermakers (24-9) will look to topple the sixth-seeded Wildcats (26-9) on Saturday night in the NCAA Tournament South Region second-round game at Hartford, Conn.

Purdue and Villanova recorded impressive defensive performances in their first-round victories. The Boilermakers limited 14th-seeded Old Dominion to a 26.9-percent effort from the field in their 61-48 win on Thursday while the Wildcats grinded out a 61-57 triumph over 11th-seeded Saint Mary's.

"I would much rather (have) a 20-point win," Villanova coach Jay Wright said. "That would have been much nicer. But it is good to play a game like this in the NCAA Tournament."

It also helps that the Wildcats can rely on the veteran leadership that has enabled the program to capture two national championships in the last three seasons.

Phil Booth scored 20 points against the Gaels and fellow senior captain Eric Paschall added 14 as the Wildcats improved to 14-1 in the NCAA Tournament since 2016.

"We're growing, our young guys are growing, but we have two seniors who do everything for us, on and off the court," Wright said. "We're just so lucky to have them."

Villanova sputtered out of the blocks, but Booth attributed the sluggish start to the Gaels stepping up their game.

"We weren't doing that bad, actually," Booth said. "It was more that they were playing very well and we were trying to match how they were bringing it. I think we just had to take it to another level, because they were playing at a high level."

Paschall and Booth both played in Villanova's last meeting with Purdue, a 79-76 win over the Boilermakers on Nov. 14, 2016. Paschall scored 11 points in just nine minutes of action while Booth had seven points.

Carsen Edwards, who led the Big Ten in scoring at 23.0 points per game, had a team-high 26 on Thursday to pave the way for Purdue in its win over Old Dominion.

It wasn't pretty, however, as Edwards went 7-for-23 from the field against the Monarchs and is 24-for-89 in his last four games.

While Edwards downplayed being hampered by a back ailment, the injury bug bit Boilermakers point guard Nojel Eastern prior to Thursday's game. The sophomore, who is one of the better defensive players in the Big Ten, turned his ankle in pregame warm-ups and was limited in the second half.

"It was something I wish that wouldn't happen, but it's basketball and stuff happens," Eastern said. "I was just trying to get back here and support my team."

Eric Hunter received the start and played 24 minutes and finished with two points, although those statistics don't tell the whole story in the eyes of coach Matt Painter.

"I thought Eric Hunter was great," Painter said. "Even though he didn't score a lot of points, he didn't turn the ball over. He had the best plus-minus on our team. He did a really good job for us."
