Villanova is off to the Final Four thanks to Scottie Reynolds. His coast-to-coast drive and ensuing game-winning layup over two Pittsburgh defenders was just another moment we can add to the history of the NCAA Tournament.

It was a classic battle. Sam Young, who nearly willed his Panthers' team to victory, was on fire the entire game. DeJuan Blair continued his low-post domination, but could have been better on the foul line. Pittsburgh could be in the Final Four right now however. Jamie Dixon's decision to put two defenders on the press allowed for Reynolds to break the pressure and drive all the way for the score. Either way, it was a great game.
