Break out the Boyz II Men references. Motown Philly is indeed back again.

For the first time since 1985, on the 17th anniversary of the greatest regional final ever and the 30th anniversary of the Three Mile Island meltdown, the Villanova University Wildcats are going to the Final Four, a brand name mind you, not an adjective.

They had to survive the wildest finish in Boston since the Tea Party as they beat the Pittsburgh Panthers, 76-74 and punch their ticket to Ford Field next weekend. However, this will not be easy as A-B-C, 1-2-3 baby, you and me mind you. They'll have to come see about the winner of tomorrow's (3/29) South Regional final between North Carolina and Oklahoma. Reach out, Cats, we'll all be at Ford Field in spirit as they will spin a Ball of Confusion. I guess you say, what could make me feel this way? Winning, my girls and boys.

    Here's a YouTube video of the last 45.5 seconds from Beantown:

    What. A. Game.
