3 stats that show just how dominant Villanova was this NCAA tournament

  • Fans cheer on the campus of Villanova University after the NCAA national title game

With the Wildcats' 79-62 win over MI in the Alamodome on Monday night, Wright joined Duke's Mike Krzyzewski and North Carolina's Roy Williams as the only active coaches with multiple NCAA titles. "And we're just always going to remember each other and being part of this team". "I didn't know how many points I had, I didn't know any of that. I enjoy it better that way". Guys were sitting out saw that, had the chance to sit back and say, 'All right, I see what the coaches are talking about'.

The Wildcats' romp through the NCAA Tournament that ended Monday with a second national title in three seasons has them up for debate as one of the top programs since the tourney field was expanded to 64 teams in 1985. Villanova is sure to try to boost his salary now, and an increase of essentially $1.1 million per year would make Wright one of the five highest-paid college coaches based on 2017-18 base salaries. But they stormed through the end of the regular season and NCAA tournament with a 14-game win streak, including winning the Big Ten tournament championship. "The first one was overwhelming because you just never did it before and he hits a shot at the buzzer", Wright said. Whenever that happens, we go back to work and we never want to stay on top of a mountain.

You know, the year the Wildcats won their first national title. But when the media calls you a blue blood, we're not turning it down.

"Everybody said he had a monkey on his back, he couldn't do it", Villanova legend Kris Jenkins said, following the Wildcats' national title win over MI on Monday night.

The somber mood in Michigan's locker room after the NCAA Tournament championship game had no outward effect on John Beilein.

College basketball has its dominant team, and it's Villanova. Villanova also joined the 1968 UCLA team as the only ones to win both their Final Four games by 16 or more points.


Unfortunately for Houston's Devin Davis, this game will be the one that got away-he was 8/8 on free throws to start the game-he finished one for four, with the chance to put the game away.

"We don't really look at it that way", Wright said.

DiVincenzo's teammates said their injured comrade did such a good job impersonating Hield that they had a much easier time defending the real deal.

If his first 3 wasn't demoralizing enough, DiVincenzo made another, then took a bounce pass from Brunson for a dunk, then paid it forward with an assist to Spellman. That changed with their title run in 2016, before another loss in their second tournament game last season. Villanova also has a reliable freshman guard in Collin Gillespie, who helped spell Brunson late in the second half due to foul trouble. The Wildcats won each of their six games by at least 12 points. "It's very humbling to know that we've been able to do this".

DiVincenzo, who is white, was 14-years-old at the time of the tweet and living in his parents' DE home, according to reports.
