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.
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".

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.
