Villanova crushes MI for second title in three years

Villanova Handles Michigan For NCAA Title

The No. 3 seeded Michigan Wolverines, led by Moritz Wagner, meet the No. 1 seeded Villanova Wildcats, led by Jalen Brunson, in the 2018 NCAA Tournament championship on Monday, April 2, 2018 (4/2/18) at Alamodome in San Antonio Texas.

The Wildcats' recipe for success: Don't be shy about shooting the basketball, especially from deep. Villanova is sure to try to boost his salary now, and an increase of essentially $1.1 million per year would make Wright one of the five highest-paid college coaches based on 2017-18 base salaries. "I never dreamt of this".

Although the game still brought in the most viewers for all television on Monday night, the ratings are somewhat disappointing for CBS/Turner. From 13 three-point shots in the first half Saturday night, the Wildcats had made one. DiVincenzo, a redshirt sophomore from Wilmington, Delaware, is nicknamed "The Big Ragu", presumably for his Italian name and red hair. Everything was contested. The Wildcats missed eight of their first nine 3-pointers. The rest of the team was 7 of 21.

Yet even DiVincenzo, the Final Four's Most Outstanding Player who steamrolled MI with a run of 10 straight points late in the first half and another burst of nine straight points in the second half, pointed to his defense as the most satisfying factor. Nearly everyone in the Villanova rotation can guard multiple positions, allowing the team to switch screens if needed, and most of the player are quick enough to deny opponents their favorite spots. DiVincenzo said he "didn't do that". Guys were sitting out saw that, had the chance to sit back and say, 'All right, I see what the coaches are talking about'. "I just wanted to help my team offensively". It was still a one-point Wolverine lead before the six-minute mark of the first half when Nova shooting guard Donte DiVincenzo sized up his defender several feet behind the three-point arc, faked a drive to his left, and then let it rip.

Villanova set records for the most three-pointers made in a single NCAA tournament and in a single season. But the NCAA got something of a pass at the Final Four this time, when the tournament's most prominent figure became Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, and the games more subtly revealed a different tectonic shift in the sport.

Latest stupid viral teen craze: the 'condom snorting challenge'
Mr Stephen Enriquez said in the KABB report: "These days our teens are doing everything for likes, views and subscribers ". The practice could be risky to your sinuses and potentially life-threatening if the condom gets stuck in your throat.

It was the Wildcats' second national championship in three years, and while it is a younger team than the one that beat North Carolina with a buzzer-beater in 2016, it is unquestionably better.

There was a reason that 'Nova entered Monday night as the biggest title game favorite since Duke in 2010, when the Blue Devils defeated the Butler team of current Celtics coach Brad Stevens, despite MI owning the nation's longest win streak at 14 games.

MI went a paltry 3 for 23 on 3-pointers, with only Moe Wagner and Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman finding the net.

While Brunson was voted the nation's best player by the AP and the National Association of Basketball Coaches, DiVincenzo won the Big East's sixth man award. "If you don't give Villanova the respect it deserves now - it's a blueblood program". They played with poise, purpose, and offensive intricacy that is the byproduct of cohesiveness that is hard to come by when you just slap a bunch of vaunted recruits together each year (see: Calipari, John). Everybody talks about their offense. "They think that's the best thing since sliced bread". And Omari (Spellman) was setting unbelievable screens for me getting me open.
