Villanova Wildcats have advanced to the Elite Eight of the 2016 NCAA Tournament and will face number 1 seed Kansas on Saturday night.

Villanova Basketball Broadcaster Ryan Fannon says Kris Jenkins is the difference maker that has lifted Villanova to be a national championship contender this season:

"The biggest reason Villanova's gone to the next level, in my opinion, more than anything is Kris Jenkins. His game and his in season development as a player, I've never seen in the 25 years I've been around Villanova. This kid is an absolute star and mid way through January of his Junior year he was a player that had a very good stroke, that was an inconsistent shooter and did not have a full, complete game. And now he does everything for Villanova and he's changed Villanova into a legitimate national championship contender."
