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

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

Villanova was a No. 1 seed for the NCAA Tournament and the Wildcats have lived up to the seeding, winning all five games by double figures.

The blueprint, or at least mindset, stretches to the early 1980s and a private liberal arts college in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, where there are academic programs in the arts and humanities and sciences and engineering and so on.

The betting line is up to 6.5 points in favor of Villanova, according to OddsShark, and the over/under is 144.5.

He was team captain and MVP. If you have three guys who shoot as well as three of their players do, you'll probably beat just about anybody out there.

"I'll be honest with you we're still watching film".

He has transported such ideals to the point of changing the college game, or at least defining how a small-ball revolution should look at its most handsome and meticulous level.

Only four teams in the last 50 years started the season unranked and won the NCAA title - UConn in 2011, Florida in 2006, Syracuse in 2003 and Villanova in 1985.

Now, it's doing so on a historic level.

If the Wildcats beat MI, they'll be the third team in NCAA men's Division I history to win at least 36 games and the national championship - joining Kentucky (38-2 in 2012) and Kansas (37-3 in 2008). It peaked at 145.5 points before falling back to 144.5.

The previous mark was 13, set by UNLV in 1987.

Tyronn Lue Rejoining The Cleveland Cavaliers
After Saturday's home game against the Pelicans , the Cavaliers have six games to go in the regular season, all but two at home. Drew has been serving as the interim coach during Lue's absence, and Cleveland has gone 6-1 during that span.

The other game, played between MI and Loyola Chicago, was a sloppy, defensively-charged mess.

Villanova bested that with 40 against Kansas. Brunson makes up an absolutely lethal backcourt for Villanova and can put the Wildcats on his back when needed.

And in the NCAA tournament, teams that can score win titles. You must register at this link here and have your printed ticket in-hand to get into the watch party. "That's more of where the influence came".

They took only four shots from inside the arc over the first 20 minutes.

Only one previous champion made more than 400 threes in a season: The 2001 Duke squad led by Shane Battier and Jay Williams.

The Villanova students have to like their seats for the NCAA championship game. Almost half of Villanova's shot attempts this season (47.5 percent) have come from 3-point range, and the Wildcats make those long-range shots at a super-efficient 40.1 percent. They have one of the most tenacious on-ball defenders in the country in Zavier Simpson.

We'll find out soon enough whether the masses are right on this one.

When talking about this game, it's important to acknowledge that Kansas played great. The pavilion has a capacity of 20,662 spectators but it once hosted 39,000 fans for a Spurs' playoff game.

ALL THOSE 3s: Villanova has made a strong case as the greatest 3-point shooting team in college history.

John Beilein's Wolverines do an outstanding job of handling the basketball.
