Louisville Shoots for 1-seed with Blowout of Villanova; Notre Dame Beats Marquette
Louisville once against looks like a 1-seed, trouncing tournament-bound Villanova worse than the 74-55 score would indicate. The Cardinals forced 25 turnovers, and if they meet Georgetown in the Big East championship, the winner of that game would likely get a 1-seed. First they will have to win a semifinal game Friday against Notre Dame, which spotted Marquette a 17-4 lead much as they spotted Pitt an 18-3 win earlier in the season, coming back to win both games.
