Villanova's Final Four hopes could well rest on what MRI results show Thursday in regard to star point guard Collin Gillespie's left knee.
The senior leader tangled legs with Creighton's Damien Jefferson in the first half of No. 10 Villanova's 72-60 Senior Night home victory over the 14th-ranked Bluejays. He had to be helped off the floor and would later return to the sideline with his left knee in heavy bandaging. Wildcats coach Jay Wright said on FS1 afterward that Gillespie's injury is "serious," per the immediate diagnosis of the team's trainer.
In his postgame media availability, Wright reiterated the apparent gravity of the injury and said Gillespie would have an MRI conducted Thursday morning.
