Drive and kick. And drive. And kick. And drive and kick.
That's the rhythm of Villanova's offense. When the Wildcats maintain that flow, when every drive leads seamlessly into every kickout, when the pattern clicks just right, hardly anyone can muffle the sweet music that results. UCLA couldn't do a thing to disrupt that refrain Saturday afternoon. And if the Wildcats do things their way, whomever they meet in the Sweet 16 -- and maybe beyond -- will be in trouble, too.
Villanova plays a ton of guards, and their combination of strength and quickness produces huge matchup problems.
