VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) - Villanova point guard Mike Nardi left
practice today because of continued discomfort in his sprained left
Nardi, who also has a strained calf, hurt the ankle against
Syracuse on March third. He had hoped a few days of rest would be
enough to heal the injury. He played sparingly in the Big East
tournament, and said nothing would keep him out of the Wildcats'
N-C-A-A tournament game against Kentucky on Friday night.
Villanova earned its third straight trip to the tourney and is
seeded ninth. The Wildcats are scheduled to go against Number eight
Kentucky in the West Regiona
