While Villanova may be entertaining thoughts on the future and a potential third NCAA Tournament title in four years, it would be wise to keep an eye on the past.

The sixth-seeded Wildcats (25–9), who square off against 11th-seeded Saint Mary’s (22–11) on Thursday in a South Region matchup in Hartford, Conn., were bounced by the Gaels in the second round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament. That game was also contested in New England — Providence, R.I., to be exact.

“It’s kind of crazy, right?” Saint Mary’s coach Randy Bennett, who has led the Gaels since 2001, said, per the San Francisco Chronicle. “I was thinking, ‘They’re not going to put us against Villanova, are they?’ Sure enough, they did. Anyhow, it’s exciting.”

While it may be exciting, it will also be a tall order for a Gaels team that advanced to the NCAA Tournament for just the second time in the last six years. Villanova has made the NCAA Tournament in seven straight years and 14 of the last 15.
