Scottie Reynolds made a half-court dash for the game-winning shot with 0.5 seconds left, leading Villanova over Pittsburgh 78-76 Saturday night and back to the Final Four for the first time since its shocking run to the 1985 championship.

Dwayne Anderson scored 17 for the third-seeded Wildcats, who
responded to Pittsburgh's physical play by sinking 22 of 23 free
throws in the East Regional final.

Villanova (30-7) will play the winner of the South Regional championship between North Carolina and Oklahoma. The Wildcats are
the lowest-remaining seed in the NCAA tournament, though not quite
as big an underdog as the eighth-seeded '85 team - the lowest seed
ever to win it all.

Sam Young scored 28 and DeJuan Blair had 20 points and 10
rebounds for Pittsburgh (31-5), the first No. 1 seed to lose.
