We're just hours removed from the final Sweet 16 games, and about an hour from the start of the Elite Eight. It's been a crazy tournament so far, with upsets galore - especially West and South regions, where the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds are all gone.

The right side of the bracket, however, has leaned toward the favorites. No. 1 seeds Villanova and Kansas took down tough No. 5 seeds West Virginia and Clemson. Meanwhile, No. 3 Texas Tech and No. 2 Duke advanced.

The favorite to win it all right now is Villanova. Jay Wright has his Wildcats playing their best.

Nova superfan, and NESN anchor, Kacie McDonnell is taking notice.

She took a trip to the beach, but didn't let that stop her from repping Nova Nation.

Meet the Villanova super fan below.

Two years ago during Villanova's run toward a national title, McDonnell was a part of Turner Sports' "Team Stream," which featured commentators with ties to each team.

McDonnell was the sideline reporter for Villanova’s game against Oklahoma.

No. 1 Villanova tips off against No. 3 Texas Tech at 2:20 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on TBS.
