Villanova came back from the dead to defeat the 5-seed Clemson in Tampa tonight, where all four lower seeds won for the first time in NCAA history.

Villanova had trailed by as many as 18 before beginning a furious comeback just before the half. The Wildcats were able to complete the dramatic comeback in the second half to win, 75-69

Villanova moves on to face the 13 seed, Siena, which upset Vanderbilt earlier today on the same court.

Villanova-Siena is scheduled for 12:10 p.m. EDT on Sunday, the very first game of the day. The next game is not slated until 2:15 p.m, so Villanova-Siena should air nationwide in its entirety.

A full analysis of the Clemson game with player grades will be up tomorrow.

Unbelievable game!!!!!

All year they have done this to us.....just when you feel they are down and out, they comeback from what feels like an improbable deficit.

Let's keep this going boys!!!!!!!!

If we're not down by at least 15 sometime in the 1st half to Seina, I fear for our chances. lol

I think I had 3 different heart attacks last night, the largest being Jay Wright's technical, but what can you say they pulled it off! If Nova keeps up the intensity I like our chances tomorrow.

Nova 77
Siena 70
