MI vs. Villanova Live Stream

That high flying offense will face one of the best defenses in college basketball Monday night when they face MI. MI got there by taking away Cinderella's slipper. The Wildcats have shot 45 percent or better from the arc 15 times and have surpassed 50 percent on seven occasions.

Nobody has had much success this season, and in what turned out to be an unexpectedly lopsided matchup between top seeds, Kansas (31-8) certainly didn't Saturday night.

How can you tune in to Monday's national championship game as March Madness comes to an end? Navigating the bracket to get there takes a certain amount of good fortune.

"When you have the NCAA violations in there, that's a time that it takes some time to heal", Beilein said. We love the Fab Five, and we continue to reach out to the Fab Five and that team. I have no idea what his National Basketball Association career is going to look like (I've seen him mock drafted anywhere from late first round to middle of the second round), probably very average (at best), but in college, Brunson's ability to control tempo, knock down open shots, and even back down less stout defenders in the post all make him the model collegiate point guard.

Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman and Zavier Simpson failed to make an impact in the Final Four win over Loyola of Chicago, which opens up concern for their potential output Monday. It was a fortunate break.

For Michigan, many of their players weren't given looks from high profile programs. But gorgeous may no longer be what defines "Villanova basketball", a phrase every Wright team learns to repeat robotically. The only NCAA Tournament opponent to crack a point per possession against U-M was Texas A&M and that was a 27-point victory.

"It's cool to have so many people interested, and to have such a big support system", Wagner said.

Assuming Markelle Fultz gets his development back on track, he will start next year, which means that the Sixers will need a backup point guard.

The offense has been less consistent. MI (33-7) allows 16.2 3-point attempts per game and just 5.3 makes per game.

That's how they got past West Virginia's suffocating pressure in the Sweet 16, and there's no one tougher than the Mountaineers.

Paschall finished the game with 24 points on 10-of-11 field goals, including 4-of-5 from behind the 3-point line. February wins over Wisconsin and Maryland were nearly as impressive. And yet, the Wolverines have the defense to slow them down just enough. Duncan Robinson, the sixth man of the year for the Wolverines played Division 3 basketball before transferring to MI. No team has played more this year. In many literal ways, this team has maxed out. The game-day attire for MI coach John Beilein is more reflective of his team's emphasis on old-school fundamentals and defense. It is a winnable game, but the margin for error is small.

Villanova, Michigan will live by the 3-pointer, but which team will defend it?

MI doesn't need to play ideal to win, but it does need an "A" game. The Wolverines can't afford a 12-for-20 performance. Usually when you play a good team, there's usually something you can give up and can make a defensive game plan, but that's not the case here.

Those two teams are stark contrasts of each other.

They may need a similar game against MI.
