Jay Wright said in postgame presser that Nova had advantage since they lost in first matchp. Had chance to learn.

Lon Kruger: "Villanova dictated everything... We're very disappointed." Sums it up pretty well.

A dejected trio of Sooner seniors in media center. Still, Buddy pats moderator on back and says Thank You. #class pic.twitter.com/vq6hmBx0r4

Hield: "(Villanova) is the best team I've ever played in college."

Lattin sprinted to locker at game's end Kruger & Cousins slap hands & thank #OU students en route to tunnel. @news9

Unfortunate way for @buddyhield's career to end. It was a great run, though. #FinalFour #OUbasketball

On top of this I got see Joe Biden. @news9

Did someone from #OU make Jay Wright mad? Multiple starters scoring, up 41 w 2:39. Very odd. Doesn't let #Sooners of hook, but...@news9

3 starters in for Nova. Hmm.up 37. @news9

Sad way to see special seniors go out. But their effort must be there to avoid disaster of epic proportions. @news9

Simple. One team capable of title nearly flawless. Other team can't make a shot. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 2, 2016

Rollie's team wouldn't beat Jay's tonight. @news9. #MarchMadness #FinalFour

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 2, 2016

Hard to say 3-pt misses due to stadium setting w Nova lighting it up. But fact is, that rim is awfully small in #OU shooter's minds. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 2, 2016

If I'm Lon Kruger I'm telling my team to get it back down to 10 points with 5 minutes remaining and is anyone's game. #Sooners #FinalFour

— Kelly (@kellyogle) April 2, 2016

Can't have many empty possessions. Stupid foul sends Lattin to bench. Gotta comeback w backup fresh. Not good. Never learns on fouls. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 2, 2016

Arcidiacono not guard you want go against trying to dictate tempo w D pressure. Cool customer. #OU gr8 start but about be down 12. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 2, 2016

Lon's got game speeded up a little and hitting rbd. Nova still O machine. Can't win w/o Buddy 3s. Tweaks helping but need stops. @news9

Spangler getting tossed around in the post. #Sooners need him to show up

— Brett Coppenbarger (@BrettCope) April 2, 2016

That play by Jordan Woodard was a momentum shifter!! #Sooners #FinalFour #Emhs

— Kelly (@kellyogle) April 2, 2016

Not impossible. But will take special half by #OU against tremendous D from Nova. Limit easy buckets & must own glass too. #sooners @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 2, 2016

#OUbasketball looked discouraged after that 3 pointer from #JoshHart right before halftime. #NOVAvsOU #FinalFour

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) April 2, 2016

Ghosts of Rollie. 65% shooting title-game like. 39-28. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 2, 2016

Near perfect half by Nova. Buddy must get shots. Gotta get to locker still in game. Need Lattin D inside. Nova D dominant. #OU @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 2, 2016

Shocked Lon's going w walker w buddy on bench down 6 w 7:58. Buford better get rbds. Nova gettingeasier looks. #Sooners can't press@news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 2, 2016

Normally explosive #OUbasketball has gone almost 6 mins without scoring. #Villanova on a 12-0 run. #FinalFour #OUvsNOVA

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) April 2, 2016

Important ... Walker & Buford in..immediate mistake walker foul/turnover. Stunned walker in. #OU @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 2, 2016

Good sign for #oubasketball, contributions from lots of different guys early. #FinalFour #NOVAvsOU

NRG Stadium is rocking, a decided fan advantage for the Crimson and Cream! Time for tipoff! #FinalFour pic.twitter.com/w39nU48vlC

Buddy & #Sooners last 3-pt shooting 31 mins till #FinalFour tip. @news9 pic.twitter.com/uKhNIt5VHW

Buddy making buckets. Playin within himself will be critically important to #OU chances in #FinalFour. @news9 pic.twitter.com/AaDVSHUvcn

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 2, 2016

Since the game's about putting the biscuit in the basket, I expect game comes down to #OU shooting %,-- prolly3s, & prolly Buddy's. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 2, 2016

Seeing lots of Sooner red and only a smattering of Villanova blue so far! #FinalFour pic.twitter.com/3BFQRbP0wX

— Kelly (@kellyogle) April 2, 2016

Bill Self brings up point that's not been discussed. He's picking #OU but says Nova's tight in-your-face D could cause props. Agree. @News9
