They both beat the top seeds in this Big East conference tournament. Villanova won five straight games in the Big East tournament last year and the Wildcats won the first conference title in program history. They looked poised to repeat as champions, especially if they could pitch like Rauch did yesterday.
DePaul of course, won’t go down without a fight and the Blue Demons got a pitching gem of their own in the quarterfinal when they took down the No. 1 UConn. Sarah Lehman threw just as an impressive game not giving up a hit to the Huskies in five and two-thirds innings, winning 6-2. Expect a low-scoring but very tight game in this one that will come down to the wire for these evenly matched teams.
