It's not going out on a limb to project that Villanova will be a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament, or that the Wildcats will get sent all the way to South Philadelphia for the opening weekend.
And there's still a chance that neither will happen.
But our mock Selection Committee, after looking at the possibilities, went with the most likely scenario.
First, the Wildcats have done enough to warrant being a three. Which means they could also be a four, just because. We even considered them for a two, albeit briefly.
Once we knew what line we felt they deserved to be on, it was a matter of placing them in the proper spot. And we didn't see any reason why they shouldn't be rewarded by getting to stay home. North Carolina and Duke seem to end up in Raleigh and Greensboro a lot; no reason to treat Villanova any differently.
