Videos: Indiana's Victor Oladipo Could Do Something Like This to Temple

If you're comparing styles, you probably won't finder a stranger matchup in the 2013 NCAA Tournament than Khalif Wyatt vs. Victor Oladipo.

He's played just one game in the tournament and you've already heard every analyst across the quartet of networks refer to Wyatt's "old-man game." Just two weeks ago, Fran Dunphy held his index finger no more than an two inches from his thumb to evidence his guard's vertical leap. I've watched every viewable game of his college career and I'm still not sure I've ever seen him dunk the ball. Not that any of that matters, since Wyatt dropped more points in the second round (31) than any other player.

But you know who doesn't have an old-man game? This guy:



Oladipo is one of the best athletes in the tournament and will likely be the primary cover on Wyatt on Sunday. Down at the other end, you can expect to see Dunphy try to match Oladipo with Scootie Randall.

Upcoming NBA Lottery-pick Cody Zeller in the post is an entirely separate issue — one for which Temple does not really have an answer — but you've heard all year — most recently from N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried — that Wyatt can hang with anyone in any conference.

Tomorrow, he's headed up against No. 1 Indiana and the guy who set the college basketball world on fire with a alley-oop he didn't even convert:



They're absolutely nothing alike, and it should be great to watch:

Villanova picked to win Big East in preseason coaches' poll

For the fourth year in a row, Villanova was picked to win the Big East in the league's preseason coaches' poll.

The Wildcats received eight of the 10 possible first-place votes in the poll, which was released on Wednesday and doesn't allow coaches to vote for their own teams. Seton Hall and Xavier received the other two first-place votes.

Villanova finished the 2016-2017 season with a 15-3 record in the Big East, good for first place in the conference, and capped it off with the Big East tournament crown.

The Wildcats finished last season with a 32-4 record overall and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

The team returns two starters from last season, including forward Mikal Bridges, who was picked for the All-Big East second team, and point guard Jalen Brunson, who was selected as the 2017-2018 Big East Preseason Player of the Year. Brunson's averages of 14.7 points and 4.1 assists led him to an All-Big East first team selection in 2016-2017.

Sophomore guard Donte DiVincenzo, who averaged 8.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game on his way to making the Big East all-freshman team, is another returning player that will play a big factor for 'Nova. The Wildcats also add freshman forward Omari Spellman to the mix after he redshirted last season. Spellman was picked in the coaches' poll as the preseason Freshman of the Year.

Jay Wright's squad tips off the 2017-18 season on Nov. 10 against Columbia.
