Delaware (22-12) enters the tournament for just the second time in nine years and they do so as the South Region's 15-seed. However, if any team has "upset" in their DNA this season, it may be the Blue Hens.
Freshman forward Jyare Davis stepped up big when Delaware was ranked fifth going into their conference tournament. He helped the Blue Hens knock off four-seeded Drexel, followed by an upset over top-seeded Towson and then scored a game-high 18 points in the title game against two-seeded UNC Wilmington.
Delaware is very familiar with Nova's prestige. Their leading scorer, Jameer Nelson Jr. is the son of the St. Joseph's University and NBA standout who was the Wildcats' city rival in Philadelphia. Also, Dylan Painter, the Blue Hen's center transferred to Delaware from Villanova is 2019.
Villanova (26-7) is looking for their third national title under Jay Wright, who is in his 21st season as the Wildcats' head coach.
To this point, Nova's season has been particularly special thanks to senior guard Collin Gillespie who suffered a torn MCL a year ago only to fight his was back to win his second consecutive Big East Player of the Year award this season. Gillespie led the 'cats with 15.9 points-per-game and also helped them win their fifth Big East title in eight years.
Villanova is a 15.5-point favorite against Delaware. The over/under is 133.5. The game will be played at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s PPG Paints Arena.

How to watch Delaware vs Villanova live streams in the US
In the U.S., March Madness is on four networks: CBS, TBS, TNT and truTV.
Delaware vs Villanova is on CBS — but the final games will only be on CBS and TBS. You can follow all of those channels with Hulu with Live TV and YouTube TV, but they're not on our list of the best streaming services. And they cost a lot, at $70 and $65, respectively.
The much more affordable Sling TV Blue ($35 per month (opens in new tab)) has TBS, TNT and truTV. And then if you add-in Paramount Plus Premium ($9.99 per month (opens in new tab)) you get CBS there. It all totals to $45 per month, $20 to $25 less than going with one of the other options.
Sling TV (opens in new tab) nets you three of the four March Madness channels in the $35 per month Sling Blue package. Sling is the live TV service that two of Tom's Guide's streaming coverage staffers used to cut the cord.
Paramount Plus (opens in new tab) combines what used to be CBS All Access with even more content from ViacomCBS partners. Includes Survivor and Big Brother episodes, as well as originals like Star Trek: Discovery, 1883, The Good Fight and the upcoming Halo series. You can try Paramount Plus with a 7-day free trial (opens in new tab).
How to watch Delaware vs Villanova in the UK
Basketball fans across the pond can follow the tournament live on BT Sport (opens in new tab), where ESPNHD will feature the games.
Delaware vs Villanova has a tip-off of 7:45 p.m. GMT.
Prices differ hugely depending on whether you already have BT TV and a BT broadband subscription. If you have both, you can add the Sports package for £15/month plus a £20 upfront fee, or go for the £40/month Big Sports package which also includes all of the Sky Sports channels, giving you a bunch of other sports on top of March Madness.
Another option for non-BT subscribers is the BT Sport Monthly Pass (opens in new tab) (£25), which lets you watch via an app for a fixed time and doesn't require a lengthy subscription.
All sounds great, right? But if you're not in the U.K., you can still follow the March Madness live streams on a service such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).
How to watch Delaware vs Villanova live streams in Canada
We can't tell how many of the March Madness games will be airing on TSN or TSN2 but they will have some NCAA games.
Delaware vs Villanova live stream will NOT be carried by TSN.
Completists without a way to watch the games, though, should — like those in the UK — take a VPN service such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) for a spin.
How to watch Delaware vs Villanova live streams in Australia
It appears that (as was the case in previous years) Kayo Sports (opens in new tab) is your best bet for Aussie streaming services serving up March Madness live streams. But it's not clear if Delaware vs Villanova will be on Kayo.
Kayo offers a 14-day free trial for both its Basic and Premium plans, more than enough time to confirm they're actually showing the games. The Basic package costs $25 per month thereafter.
The $35 per month Premium Kayo plan gives you all the same things as the normal plan, but it offers three simultaneous streams. The Basic plan gives you two streams at the same time.
If Kayo doesn't have this game, though, we recommend trying out ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).
