ESPN's Jay Williams Says Villanova Is "By Far" The Best Team In The Country

Jay Williams breaks down the NCAA Tournament.

There are six teams left in the 2018 NCAA Tournament. Do any of them stand above the rest?

According to ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Williams, the answer is yes.

That team is currently playing. It's Villanova.

The No. 1-seeded Wildcats are up on No. 3 seed Texas Tech at halftime of the Elite Eight contest. Nova hasn't looked great, but it has a sizable lead after 20 minutes.

During the contest, Williams proclaimed that the team he was watching is "by far" the best in the NCAA Tournament.

"It's not close."

And, no, he says he is not being a prisoner of the moment. They are legitimate and have been all year.

He's right - probably.

Villanova has looked like college basketball's best team all season long. That doesn't mean they're going to win the national title, though.
