Last night, I found myself watching Villanova completely destroy Duke and wondering aloud "How is 'Nova doing it?" Well, thanks to Bob Ford of the Philadelphia Inquirer, my query has been answered.
It is this simple: They don't want it to end.
From the very start, Villanova played to win, not to avoid a loss.
[Which would also leave "winning" as their only option..... right?]
From the very start, the Wildcats gave No. 2-seeded Duke far more than it wanted.
[Well, that's not surprising because we've already established that Duke wanted "it" less than Nova did, so the amount of "it" that Duke wanted was likely a manageable sum.]
If the game was a test of will, only one team passed.
[In fact, Jay Wright's $2,000 suit was actually made out of "will." Really durable fabric.]
Whatever this postseason will become, however far it will go, it isn't over yet.
