Nova Kick Starts March Madness With Reynolds and Fisher On the Bench

Mar 18, 2010, 12:01 PM EDT

If you're reading this before the Villanova game tips off at 12:30 p.m. this afternoon, I feel bad for you. That means you're likely sitting in front of a computer somewhere and not taking the day off or at the very least a "long lunch" to go watch the NCAA tourney all day at your local sports bar. Thankfully for you, CBS and the NCAA have done a fabulous job of allowing you to watch games at work.

The big news out of Providence today is that Scottie Reynolds and Corey Fisher will not be in the starting line up as Jay Wright tries to make a "minor teaching point." The good news for 'Nova fans is that it's a lot easier to make a point against a team like Robert Morris in a 15-2 match up than a tougher later round opponent.

12:30 tip from Providence. The story behind Reynolds and Fisher's benching should be about as interesting as the actual game.
