Duke v Wake Forest: Carrying the Blue Devils on both ends of the floor, center Kyle Filipowski is more than just a scorer & rebounder.

Butler v Villanova: Determined to reassert himself as a preeminent two-way guard (in the nation), Villanova's Justin Moore has endured a long road back from a number of injuries; and his patience and hard work during that rough time is beginning to pay off. Against Butler, we saw glimpses of the old Moore; as the savvy vet scored 13 points using his smooth, perimeter jump-shot combined with his strength-&-finesse as a dribble-driver.

Villanova v Georgetown: Not the prettiest motion in the world, Villanova's Maryland-transfer, Hakim Hart, is an athletic driver and a strong, versatile defender whose perimeter-stroke leaves a lot to be desired. As a Roman Catholic graduate himself, Hart is a Philly kid; just like Longino and Dixon.

Seton Hall v Villanova: With 43 points in his last 3 games, the Wildcats' shooting-guard, Brendan Hausen, is starting to find his footing at this (/the next) level and could be onto something. Moving forward, Hausen's butter-stroke needs to be complemented with a stronger offensive-game off the bounce.

Villanova v Xavier: Given how incredible "Nova's Brendan Hausen is as a perimeter shooter, it's no wonder Xavier's defense got beaten back-door by the sophomore-sharpshooter; who cannot be allowed to roam freely on the perimeter.

Providence v Villanova : Swarmed by multiple black-jerseys all night, Villanova's Abington-grad, Eric Dixon, had to work (hard) for his 12 points and kept his composure under duress as Providence continued to double him.

Marquette v Villanova: Like a (blind-) squirrel finding a nut, Tyler Burton somehow knocked down a pair of triple's in the Pavilion but undermined these efforts by losing his mind mostly on the other end as the game wore on.

Villanova v Marquette: 'Nova's Mark Armstrong is a bundle of talent; equipped w/ a ton of speed & quickness to go along with handles, hops, and (shooting) touch near the basket. However, the young-guard gives off "Memphis" vibes in the sense that his talent isn't enough to make up for his shortcomings as a game-manager and inopportune defender. Luckily, Mark has the coaching staff to point him in the right direction while Penny strikes me as more of a "player's coach".

Villanova v Butler: Without the services of 6-foot 8-inch forward Eric Dixon , the Villanova Wildcats would be very fortunate to eclipse the 50-point threshold in the scoring department on most nights. The Wildcats' latest loss is certainly no exception.

Memphis Grizzlies v Golden State Warriors - Play-In Tournament: Morant's coming-out party during his team's play-in win over GS was a treat for all involved. That said, was GS the better team? Moreover, do you think Curry's Warriors would’ve taken the Utah Jazz to a Game 6 (or beyond) in the opening round of those 2021 playoffs? If your answer is a "yes", then you oughta take the position that GS should’ve been in the playoffs (rather than Memphis).
