Michigan Basketball: 3 keys to beating Villanova for the national title

Michigan Basketball: 3 keys to beating Villanova for the national title Michigan Basketball: 3 keys to beating Villanova for the national title

Over the course of their winning streak, MI has played lock down defense, giving up just 62 points per game to opponents. According to ESPN's Basketball Power Index, Villanova has a 79.8 percent chance of winning, so the numbers are well in favor of Jay Wright's team. The Wildcats finished 35-5 when they won the national title in 2016.

Moritz Wagner #13 of the Michigan Wolverines defends Ben Richardson #14 of the Loyola Ramblers in the second half during the 2018 NCAA Men's Final Four semifinal game at the Alamodome on March 31, 2018.

The Wildcats set a Final Four record with 18 3-pointers against Kansas to get to the title game against MI on Monday night. The 6-foot-7 redshirt junior has also made himself into a top potential National Basketball Association prospect with his two-way defensive ability and 3-point shooting. The Irish went just over 8 minutes without a point, missing seven shots and committing five turnovers during the game-changing run. "I looked it up right away". It's the reason we watch. "Rather than come to college saying I want to get out as soon as I can". "We just keep doing it". None will walk, talk, and play with the authentic innocence of these young men, who were confident without being indignant, and didn't live by the nauseating, recycled mantra: "No one believes in our squad!"

Ogunbowale earned most outstanding player honors for the tournament and also received a congratulatory tweet from Kobe Bryant, who took in the semifinal win over UConn. Whether it's his 40% 3-point shooting or his sneaky good post-game, this kid can beat you in every way. While Loyola may have risen from Lake Michigan like a long-lost dinosaur, the Wolverines were hardly a long-shot, or the byproduct of a lucky shot, steal, or deflection. "You just got to hope you can minimize his influence on the game". "It's going to be a challenge and we're looking forward to it".

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Villanova is favored in this game, as the Wildcats are getting odds of -7 points against MI. Each of their five victories have come by double-digits, with an average margin of 15.8 per game.

The 2018 Big Ten-winning Wolverines won a Final Four matchup with the Cinderella story of Loyola-Chicago, who hadn't made the tournament since that 1985 season. The Jayhawks never recovered.

Control the pace: Villanova can win both a fast and slow tempo game.

Omari Spellman is a terrific three-point shooter and he plays center. Opponents understand this but there is little they can do about it. "They're really, really efficient at multiple positions". But that's not the case here.

"The whole villain thing, you guys love to write about it, talk about it, but at the end of the day it's just basketball, you know?" It's the national championship.

"Nothing personal, but I'm the wrong person to ask", said Andy Enfield, the coach of Southern California, which fired associate coach Tony Bland after he was arrested in the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, accused of accepting $13,000 for steering two players to specific business representatives.

When a German coaching friend put Wagner on MI coach John Beilein's radar five years ago, Beilein could tell Wagner wasn't a normal teenager from their first phone conversation. "This is Draymond Green-type stuff where they can all shoot, pass, do everything".
