How to Watch Villanova vs. MI

Michigan head coach John Beilein talks to Zavier Simpson during the second half in the semifinals of the Final Four NCAA college basketball tournament against Loyola-Chicago Saturday

Villanova men's basketball coach Jay Wright had good reason to heap praise on MI forward Moritz "Moe" Wagner in a news conference Sunday at the Alamodome, where the Wildcats and Wolverines will square off Monday night for the national title. The three losses were both regular-season games against Purdue and a loss to North Carolina in the ACC-Big Ten challenge. Wagner's outstanding performance in the semifinals against Loyola (24 points, 15 rebounds and a.625 field goal percentage) has Michigan's state dreaming with an NCAA title.

For the Wildcats, they came out of the gates on fire against Kansas, setting an NCAA record for 3 point shots made en route to a 16 point rollover of Kansas.

Villanova 86, MI 70: Wildcats Wolverines.

The Wolverines find a way to get it done with defense. It's clear Loyola was underseeded, though they weren't among the nation's elite teams.

However, the Wolverines aren't the best team in that category entering Monday's game, as Villanova sits 17 spots ahead of them.

"They can all shoot", MI center Moe Wagner said. Jalen Brunson is an incredible talent and Nova is probably the best 3-point shooting team in the country.

Villanova enters Monday's national championship game as the consensus favorite over MI, whether your authority of choice happens to be oddsmakers, laptops or (ahem) ESPN types.

MO' MOE: Villanova's issue on defense will be finding a way to slow Michigan's Moe Wagner.

Michigan, meanwhile, ranks third in the nation in adjusted defensive efficiency. So were guys like Duncan Robinson, Charles Matthews and Jordan Poole.

The Rebels in that game against in also attempted a semifinal-record 35 3s. Florida State and Texas A&M were both held five attempts below their season averages in losing to MI in the NCAA Tournament. Nearly all of the experts are taking the Wildcats, too.

Conventional wisdom says Villanova has to ignore their opponent and play their game, but honestly, it doesn't matter.

Villanova is the sport's best team. Tonight's over/under points total is at 144.5 points for the complete game in San Antonio, Texas.

- Villanova is the biggest NCAA title-game favorite since Kentucky in 2012. Brunson makes up an absolutely lethal backcourt for Villanova and can put the Wildcats on his back when needed.

The German big man is a match-up nightmare with his agility, pinpoint passing and ability to knock down 3-pointers.

The good news for MI? This is largely a credit to guards Zavier Simpson and Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman.

Mikal Bridges is that player for Villanova.

Much earlier, at about the 13-minute mark of the first half, Collin Gillespie spotted up and swished for 'Nova's sixth 3 of the game, which gave it the NCAA record for 3s in a season, with 442.
