We settle out one half of the Final Four today. It should be two very excellent games, as both contests feature a #1 seed taking on the #2 seed in their region. Both games are essentially coin tosses, according to KenPom. Oklahoma has a 53% chance to beat Oregon, with a predicted score of 77-76. Over in the game that we care about as Big East fans, it is literally a coin toss. The predicted score is Villanova winning, 74-73, but the Wildcats have a 50% chance of victory. I'm guessing it's a "rounds off to 50% issue" that has it tilted ever so slightly in Nova's favor.
