Alabama picked up its first NCAA Tournament win in more than 10 years when it knocked off Virginia Tech, 86-83, in the first round.

Oddsmakers think Villanova could make easy work of Avery Johnson's squad. The point spread opened at 11 points in favor of the Wildcats, which is the largest margin of the day. If Alabama can find a way to pull the upset, it would give the program its 9th trip to the Sweet Sixteen all-time. The last trip to the second weekend came back in 2004.
