The Villanova Wildcats are the 2-seed in the South region in the 2016 NCAA Tournament.

The 'Cats will be making their BIG EAST-leading 36th appearance in the tourney and are expected by many to be a serious contender for their second NCAA Championship in school history. 'Nova, led by seniors Ryan Arcidiacono and Daniel Ochefu, will be looking for redemption after an early exit last season at the hands of NC State.

Jay Wright's men will face UNC-Asheville in the Round of 64 on March 18, 2016 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
