Villanova dominates Kansas, 95-79, advances to title game

161435-villanova

That's plenty terrifying, but here's what should really make blood curl: That shooting trick, almost impossible to replicate, is merely a superfluous exhibition that gets the attention of the casual observer.

Villanova won the national championship in 1985 and 2016, with a potential third title sitting one game away. They just need to pull out something from the most diverse and enviable repertoire in men's college basketball.

"He deserved it, he won the championship", Matthews said.

One of sports' deepest-rooted clichés is defense wins championships.

The balanced Wildcats also received 18 points from Jalen Brunson along with 15 points and 13 rebounds from Omari Spellman.

It took until the final weeks of the season, but the dominant team the sport lacked this season has emerged.

No. 1-seeded Villanova will attempt to capture its second national championship in three years when it battles MI on Monday night in San Antonio.

Villanova made three 3-pointers in a 73-second span in the opening three minutes, and buried another one before the first media timeout.

The Opening Day Experience
Hamels was 7 - 2 (4.35 ERA) in 2017 and had two starts against the Astros last season with a 5.40 ERA in those two games. While it might seem like the Rangers have a steep hill to climb, the team won division titles in 2015-2016.

"I feel bad for Kansas", Villanova coach Jay Wright said. But they're playing their best basketball and shrugging while everyone else showers them with admiration.

Kansas and Villanova share a recent history. I had never seen that before.

"Just working with coaches", Paschall said.

BEYOND THE ARC: Villanova made only four 3-pointers in their 71-59 East Region final victory over Texas Tech, its second-lowest total of the season. Villanova is dropping 3-pointers like pop-a-shot and making teams look far less skilled.

The high-motion, position-less offenses are the shiny objects of this Final Four. You won't find another perimeter-oriented squad that can match Villanova's physical style, either. The Wildcats led by as many as 22 points. This stage illuminates their trust in each other and faith in their system. "We've had some good ones". This is definitely our best. We've got a VIllanova attack that's in contention as if not the best, then at the very least the most devastating in the modern age. "We just wasn't quick enough on defense and wasn't aggressive enough".

MI will play Villanova for the fifth time ever and the second time in the NCAA Tournament. They actually cut the lead to 11, at 25-13 and then the Wildcats (35-4) just started making threes and the Jayhawks had to go back to man-to-man. Azubuike made it only to about the elbow before Spellman was knocking it down for a 9-2 lead and leading Self to burn an immediate timeout.

The Wildcats have long, athletic players with mostly interchangeable skills, allowing them to switch on screens a majority of the time.

It helps to pray that they have an off shooting night, but they live for those moments.

Lady Commanders win three straight at home
Junior utility player Tyra Smith had three hits and sophomore pitcher/first baseman Jacy Finley had 3 RBIs and 3 hits. Bronson split their season opening doubleheader with Colon winning the opener 11-0 but losing the second game 6-5.

"I think in a good way", said Townsend, asked how fans should remember the team.

Like every night that ends in "Y" for the Wildcats. "That's all we've worked for is to be the best team we can be".

"They played great today". A championship trophy is the goal, but Villanova doesn't want to settle.

"If you look at the numbers, we held them to 45 percent shooting", Wright said. Still, Villanova wants more.

His perspective was shared by many KU fans leaving the Alamodome Saturday night. We're owed better than that. "But we haven't been down to Villanova by 15".

Loyola is a superb transition defensive team because it rarely sends players to the offensive glass and triggers its own run-outs and transition 3-pointers with aggressive defense. There's a chance that MI could play a great game Monday night and still lose.

Teammate Phil Booth agreed with Bridges' assessment of the Jayhawks' guards. "We want to make the most of it". Villanova has made 17 of 34 shots from beyond the arc. "We don't have time for that".
