Villanova looks to future instead of at failed title defense

VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) Check all the Xs in the office pool and just-for-fun brackets and defending national champion Villanova and Duke are two of the biggest names eliminated from the NCAA Tournament.

The Wildcats and Blue Devils would have been a matchup fit for the marquee at Madison Square Garden.

But instead of getting the equivalent of Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz, MSG has to sell seats for the regional final with Wisconsin and South Carolina potentially in the main event. For entertainment value, may as well go watch a Nets-Knicks game instead and hope Charley Oakley is in the house.
