Make it 2 out of 3 as Villanova Buries Michigan

Villanova Tops Michigan For Second NCAA Basketball Title In Three Years

Villanova NCAA title fixed

"We were guarding him, and he was making those shots". This version of the Wildcats was different than the 2016 National Championship squad-and possibly better. "He had a clear head and he did whatever we needed all year". Smith's protégé, Roy Williams, got three rings in Chapel Hill, but only after falling short in 15 years at Kansas. That strategy overall has paid dividends: It's the best offensive team head coach Jay Wright - now with two titles - has had.

MI head coach John Beilein hugs Moritz Wagner as he comes off the court late in the second half against Villanova during the Final Four national championship game at the Alamodome on Monday in San Antonio.

Despite coming on board in 2001, the Wildcats haven't been living up to the powerhouse name until the last couple of years, and with two title to their name over the last three years, that label isn't going away anytime soon.

The Wildcats (36-4) found a multitude of ways to outflank and outfinesse another opponent in a 79-62 victory over the Michigan Wolverines before a crowd of 67,831 at the Alamodome on Monday night. "And we were telling our kids, 'We've just gotta be better than them one night.' Because they are talented and have incredible experience. We're a blue blood". And they didn't just win-the University of Maryland-Baltimore County absolutely dominated Virginia, the number one overall seed. Wright, who made $2.6 million this season, is King of the Cats and he's pretty much guaranteed a job for life at Villanova. The NBA links will be there, but for now, it sounds like Villanova's coach is extremely happy where he's at.

But there is nowhere the Bucks County native would rather be than the small Catholic school in Philadelphia.

Wagner finished with 16 points and seven rebounds for the Wolverines, struggling to find his rhythm again after Villanova switched defensive tactics against him in the first half, focusing on keeping the ball out of the junior forward's hands. "If you don't do anything with it, just because you suffered a loss, that's not going to make you better".

Krzyzewski is 71. Williams is 67.

Who's the greatest coach in Big Five history?


Now, as a new-school blue blood, talent only becomes easier to attract.

"Buddy Hield Donte was a special person, and someone who might've came out tonight", Jalen Brunson, the Wildcats' star who ran into foul trouble and had only nine points against MI, told the Times.

"We're constantly changing it, always got a date at the top".

While you may think only a few people are listening, there's a chance that millions could be listening so if you don't want something to come back and haunt you, maybe don't tweet.

The Wildcats did it with a style that defies the one-and-done, go-for-your-money, quick-fix, build-an-instant-contender mentality that now haunts college basketball. But he's already a legend, even if he isn't ready to acknowledge it.
