-Villanova has faced the highest possible seed in every round—a No. 15 (UNC Asheville), a No. 7 (Iowa), a No. 3 (Miami) and the No. 1 overall seed (Kansas

-Villanova held Kansas, the fourth-best three-point shooting team in the country this season, to 22.2% shooting in the Elite Eight.

-UNC has a major size advantage down low on Syracuse with 6'10" Kennedy Meeks and 6'8" Justin Jackson in the starting lineup with backups Isaiah Hicks at 6'9" and and Joel James at 6'11". The Orange, meanwhile, have only one player, junior DaJuan Coleman, who goes even 6'9", and he plays just 17.5 mins per game

-UNC shot 72.0% in the Elite Eight against Notre Dame.

-Houston's NRG Stadium is a shooter’s nightmare. In the 2011 Final Four, Butler, Connecticut, Kentucky and VCU combined to shoot 34.3% from the field overall and 28.1% from 3-point range in the three games.
