The Villanova Wildcats are the toughest team in the Final Four. They are on a scary roll, saving their best basketball for the NCAA tournament. The way they destroyed UCLA and Duke and found a way to beat Pittsburgh -- one of the most physical teams in the country -- is mind-boggling. So while North Carolina is everyone's pick to beat Nova, the 'Cats may be a team of destiny. It helps that they are versatile, talented and play with no distractions, but just one purpose: to win.
Villanova's perimeter attack has carried the 'Cats to the Final Four. If the Wildcats keep up their defensive intensity, they can knock off Carolina.
