NCAA Tournament Predictions: Michigan vs. Villanova 4/2/18

Final Four 2018 Villanova Michigan will live by the 3-pointer but which team will defend

Match-Up: No. 1 Villanova Wildcats vs.

Villanova University and the University of MI, which will play for the NCAA men's basketball championship Monday night, both have proud basketball traditions.

The Rebels in that game against in also attempted a semifinal-record 35 3s. The Wolverines have had a unique path to the championship, failing to play any better than a 6 seed to this point. Villanova made a Final Four-record 18 3s in a record-matching 40 attempts, its second trip in three seasons to the title game never in doubt. Villanova looms over the Wolverines as obvious favorites, but don't discount the Wolverines. The Wildcats finished 35-5 when they won the national title in 2016.

They won't feel it now, through the abject pain of losing when they were 60 minutes from their first title since 1963, but the Ramblers have done more than make an improbable run to the Final Four. "My mom told me the other day that there are so many people who know me and who are calling them all the time".

To sum things up, Villanova was feelin' it Saturday night. Ogunbowale won Most Outstanding Player for the tournament. For the season, just 29.9 percent of shots attempted by MI opponents have been 3-pointers, making the Wolverines the No. 6 defense in terms of limiting 3's. If they can do anything close to that on Monday night, Michigan's likely toast.

Seniors to the rescue: Aside from Moe Wagner and Charles Matthews, nobody made any shots in the semifinal game. MI has been trending under: Over its past seven NCAA tournament games, the under is 5-1-1.

"The state of the game, there's no doubt, there's some question marks now", Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said.

MI won't get away with a poor shooting night and slow start against this team like it has in four of the five tournament victories thus far. They are a deeper and more experienced team with the exception of Jalen Brunson.

The Wildcats not only boast the top adjusted offensive efficiency in the nation, they have one of the best offenses we've ever seen at this level. It was another impressive display of defense for John Beilein's program, which forced 17 turnovers and is in the title game for the second time in six years and is in search of the school's first national championship since 1988-89.

The Wolverines might be hard-pressed to defeat Villanova without with a similar performance from their best player. Brunson makes up an absolutely lethal backcourt for Villanova and can put the Wildcats on his back when needed.

Villanova is commanding that by making its case as the greatest 3-point shooting team in college history.

MI may have a better answer than the Jayhawks had.

Michigan's goal will be to get Villanova away from the 3-point line and redirect shots. MI was 39th in the preseason poll balloting, behind seven ranked teams that wouldn't even end up making the NCAA Tournament - No. 10 USC, No. 14 Notre Dame, No. 15 Minnesota, No. 16 Louisville, No. 19 Northwestern, No. 22 Saint Mary's, No. 24 Baylor. First one to double-digit 3-pointers will be in good shape. The rest of the leadership trust includes juniors Mikal Bridges, Eric Booth and Eric Paschall, and scrappy sophomore Donte DiVincenzo. "Now we're playing on Monday night".

The Villanova big man cooked the Jayhawks for 24 points on 10-11 shooting.
