MI v Villanova Championship Game: Odds, Start Time & More

"He's unbelievable. He's one of those dynamic scorers from the post, he's a great passer, made some unbelievable passers today with both hands", Villanova assistant coach Ashley Howard said. The Wildcats defeated Georgetown 66-64 on April 1, 1985, at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Ky., and beat North Carolina 77-74 on April 4, 2016, at NRG Stadium in Houston.

Villanova cruised to a 95-79 victory over No.1 Kansas in the Final Four.

The Wolverines haven't played anyone like the Wildcats in the tournament.

Authorities around the Villanova University campus are preparing - and, yes, greasing utility poles - in anticipation of fan celebrations if the school prevails in the NCAA championship men's basketball game over MI.

Villanova's Jalen Brunson hits a 3-pointer over the defense of Kansas's Devonte' Graham in the Final Four Saturday. The game opened with Nova being a 6-point favorite and it is up to 8-points at many Vegas sports books, including the LV Super Book. The New Jersey junior averages 19.2 points per game, 80.2 FT% and has a 52% field goal percentage.

"But to be honest, I kept looking possession by possession. The film session was pretty rough, but we got the message and ever since then we've tried to take away threes whenever possible". "But I always thought I was going to get better and better every day". "And we just try to win".

Who are you taking?

"He has the ability to beat you in any way". No matter how it plays out, you couldn't ask for a more intriguing matchup for the season finale. You just gotta hope you can minimize his influence on the game. "If the stars aligned I thought MI had a shot this year".

They may need a similar game against MI.

Villanova is no slouch defensively itself, but it's the Wildcats' offense that has been impressive throughout the season.

SAN ANTONIO Villanova has faced its share of talented big men this season.

The Wolverines had trouble scoring in their Final Four game to trail Loyola-Chicago by seven at halftime, before finding the right gear in the second to run past the underdog Ramblers 69-57 into the title game. Dwayne McClain had 17 points and Ed Pinckney scored 16 points with six rebounds as VU shot 78 percent (22-of-28) to stun Patrick Ewing, John Thompson as the Hoyas. The Jayhawks never recovered.

Normally the third or fourth option on a team full of shooters, junior wingman Eric Paschall led the barrage, going 4-for-5 from three, 10-for-11 overall and finishing with a career-high 24 points. Brunson, Spellman and Divincenzo hit three three-pointers apiece. Opponents understand this but there is little they can do about it. "They're really, really efficient at multiple positions". But that's not the case here.

"If you didn't know about him, you'd be, "Oh, he did OK" (against Kansas), but I think that's the beauty of Mikal". The Bulldogs had to play a Catholic school for the national championship on Easter Sunday? "So, yeah, they present a tremendous challenge". Aside from Arizona - who got bounced in the first round - MI was the other "sleeper" team, a non-top-seed who was a trendy pick by Big Ten devotees. The move is to discourage fans from climbing the poles should Villanova win Monday night.

"This is Golden State Warriors here", Beilein said. This was first started by ESPN a few years ago for the National Championship Game.

For the Wildcats this season, that number is clear: It's 75.

"It's specifically gratifying to see 33 percent and outrebounding them in the biggest game so far", coach Jay Wright said after that game. Numerous thanks and credit for that should go to new assistant Luke Yaklich, who came from Illinois State and implemented some of the same tactics and philosophies that helped the Redbirds post the 19 best adjusted defense last season.
