Villanova students and fans are heading to Houston for the Final Four tip-off Saturday night.

They are excited about this weekend, and tomorrow's night game against Oklahoma.

The team is already there. They have been practicing. They've been getting acclimated. And, they are trying to focus through all the distractions.

The distractions can be fun, but they need to focus on tomorrow's night game, and the game plan.

There are murals at the stadium, and pictures of the players everywhere, even at the hotel. But, they are trying to keep their head down and keep their eye

on what they need to do to win that national championship.

Villanova Guard Ryan Arcidiacona said, "It is in our grasp. We can definitely taste it, but we have two tough games. And, one tough game, we have to get by to even have an opportunity to get a national championship."

Villanova received 700 student tickets that were gone in under three hours.

Although lots of students are going to Houston, there will be some students on campus.

They are planning a big watch party to cheer on the Wildcats to victory.
