After scoring only 22 points in the first half, Villanova came back to beat Virginia 61-59 on a tip in at the buzzer. At one point in the second half, the Cats were down by 13, and it didn’t look good. Here are some tweets from earlier in the game…
If people were sleeping on Virginia entering today, they aren't anymore. Putting on clinic at 'Nova. Execution nearly impeccable.

Things I did not expect to see today: Villanova getting worked like a speed bag against Virginia.

What UVA is doing to Villanova is incredible. Short-handed and clubbing the champs, who are coming off a loss, in their house.

Villanova hasn't played good basketball in four of their last five games. Virginia's defense is too good to break out of a slump.

Gosh, I hope Villanova is in the Top 10 next week. This is brutal. Also, they should never play at Wells Fargo.

Man, UVA is making this look easy.

Man Virginia is impressive. Going into Philly and dominating the defending champs. Up 10 now under 10 mins to play.
