Finally an over the back call on the offensive boards against Nova. Been getting away with that all night so far.

Every time this team starts a comeback all I can think of is Dabney Coleman and his lisp
These boys definitely have "ballth ath big ath churchbellth"

Very surprised to see Nova slowing it down so much on the offensive end. Would think that would play into PC's desire to keep it close.

Nova being able to swing their arms wildly and bringing them down hard at every shot PC takes and not getting called for shit is a pretty sweet bonus for a team ranked fourth in the country - like they need the additional help.

This game is an unbelievable session for Providence, whether they win or lose. They have established they can play with anyone. Villanova is giving this everything they have.

The refs are not winning this game for Villanova. It's been a pretty well-called game, save for a couple calls that they are bound to get wrong every game.

Blatant charge on Paschall missed on the last basket. Diallo clearly had established himself, and Paschall landed on top of him, as Gus is saying "Paschall avoids the chage" going into the commercial. Umm, no Gus, he didn't. The refs just didn't call it.

Yup. I have been so so wrong about this team this year. They can hang with any team in the country.
Their ability to come back, and never give up, will be very useful in the tourney. The team is playing their best hoop this very moment. That's huge.

If Cooley could ever get a top 10 recruiting class, I swear he could have a team contend for the whole thing.
