The second round of the NCAA Tournament tips off on Saturday - with many fans still stunned over top-seeded Virginia's 20-point loss to 16th-seeded UMBC on Friday night.
They also have versatile Chris Clarke, their best defender, and Ahmed Hill, who was their top scorer until his defensive lapses caused Williams to bench him in favor of Wilson for the season's final 10 games.
The Wildcats' toughest nemesis was more the round than the team: Villanova lost in the first weekend as a 1 or 2 seed in 2010, 2014, 2015 and 2017. They overwhelmed the Crimson Tide (20-16) with a barrage of 3-pointers. Jalen Brunson contributed 12 for Villanova, which made 17 shots from beyond the 3-point arc. The Cats will play the victor of Sunday night's game in San Diego between No. 5 West Virginia and No. 13 Marshall.
The daunting challenge for Alabama is to find a way to slow down Villanova. Villanova was able to connect on 17 three-pointers in comparison to Alabama's four.
The buzzer sounded as Ingram's shot went in, but officials put 0.3 seconds back on the clock. They missed eight of their first 11 3s in the first half and Alabama briefly grabbed the lead. "I've got to admit, in the middle of that game, I was like, 'This is really cool".
DiVincenzo's first-half effort was matched by Mikal Bridges after the break. But the Tide have just one senior, Riley Norris, and could show improvement next season if players like John Petty and Donta Hall continue to make a leap.

"Coach was telling me to be aggressive and stay ready, play off your jump shot", said Bridges, who finished with a game-high 23 points.
Freshman Collin Sexton led the Crimson Tide offense with 17 points to end his historic freshman campaign with 632 points, which surpasses Michael Ansley (1988-89) for third on Alabama's single-season scoring list. The Crimson Tide had the fourth-youngest roster in the Division I this past season and bring in another solid recruiting class along with Texas transfer Tevin Mack, who averaged 14.8 points and 4.8 rebounds a season ago.
DUKE 87, RHODE ISLAND 62: Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year Marvin Bagley scored 22 points to go with nine rebounds, fellow freshman big man Wendell Carter Jr. added 13 points, and second-seeded Duke rolled past seventh-seeded Rhode Island in Pittsburgh to earn the program's 26th trip to the Sweet 16. Bridges scored 16 points in the first four and a half minutes, including 11 straight at one point, to turn a two-possession ballgame into a 22-point laugher.
Another hard game to predict due to the 3-point shooting ability of the Ramblers. "We're going to get on each other if we're not doing this or that and that's what my teammates did".
