PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Villanova's Scottie Reynolds and Corey Fisher aren't starting in their opening round game against Robert Morris for disciplinary reasons.
Both players will play. It's not exactly clear why coach Jay Wright benched them.
CBSSports.com will update this story as it develops.

The Villanova basketball team stayed at my hotel on Friday night and they were leaving this morning for an early practice in preparation for their Saturday afternoon game against UCLA. A group of fans were outside the hotel waiting for the Villanova players to board their bus. The fans were asking for autographs.
The players were perfect gentlemen. It was a very impressive moment. They signed every basketball and t-shirt shoved in front of them. They were courteous and friendly and smiled the entire time. Villanova coach Jay Wright should be proud.
Some of the fans, well, they were a little different. One of the fans approached a player and said, "Beat the s--- out of those UCLA p------."
In Philly, I think that qualifies as "Good Morning."
