Villanova tops Michigan 79-62 for 2nd national title in 3 years

Villanova NCAA title fixed

"I'm just so thankful that he was able to have one of these nights tonight", said Villanova guard Jalen Brunson, who garnered several national player of the year honors as the season has come to a close, "It just shows you how much depth we have as a team and how we just don't care who gets the credit". In the meantime, Jay Wright and his Wildcats continue to impress.

Brunson already has two championship rings and more hardware from his various player-of-the-year awards than he can carry, and he is set to follow his dad, Rick Brunson, into the National Basketball Association. But while Virginia, Xavier, Cincinnati, North Carolina, Michigan State, Tennessee and many others were losing to teams seeded worse than fifth, Michigan survived five tests from the same caliber of team.

Towering guard DiVincenzo dominated the MI defense with a devastating first half display as the top-seeded Wildcats cruised home for a 79-62 win at San Antonio's Alamodome in Texas.

From the ashes of the old Big East, Wright unexpectedly built a national power, without the use of one-and-done talent or a single recruiting class ranked in the nation's top 20. I thought we did get some open shots. The kid Bridges, he was shooting the heck out of the ball. And by the time we all got healthy, we had a way better team. So we're always doing that and evaluating our young people.

"Me and him competed every day for the last two years, and I knew he was proud", DiVincenzo said. This season, it's been Nova's three B's that have led, with Donte DiVincenzo, Omari Spellman and Eric Paschall fitting into their roles. However, their win last night was certainly different, with the Wildcats exercising domination over MI.

Ravens' 2018 Offseason Workout Program Dates Announced
The final phase of the offseason program begins on May 22, when the Vikings will hold the first of 10 organized team activities. Phase Two - the following three weeks - includes on-field workouts limited to individual player instruction and drills.

There's plenty of time to talk about Villanova's place in history after the partying is done this week. "I never dreamed of this", Wright told TBS television. "But we didn't have it, and they did". They know the upperclassmen in our program are respected. And they excel in developing players. They have proven their talents this season, and have established themselves as a part of NCAA basketball royalty. They want the right talent.

"He's a killer", Brunson said. "So, Donte, obviously he was great".

"I just have the best job in the country, my hometown, my wife's alma mater, my favorite team growing up", Wright said Monday. Not everyone is fit for it.

"They kept growing and growing, and that's all that coaches can ask for", Beilein said. "The injuries gave us an opportunity to play Collin Gillespie, to play Dhamir Cosby-Roundree during the season - which gave those guys just enough confidence to be effective during this time of year".

In a tournament of UMBC and Buffalo, of upsets and outright jolts, and of Loyola-Chicago and Sister Jean's magical ride, Villanova whisked through Radford, Alabama, West Virginia, Texas Tech, Kansas and MI by 26, 23, 12, 12, 16 and 17 points.
