MI vs. Villanova Live Stream

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

The 2018 NCAA tournament champion will be crowned on Monday night, when MI faces Villanova at the Alamodome in San Antonio. Pregame coverage will begin at 7 p.m. Despite Michigan's stifling perimeter defense, expect Villanova's barrage from beyond the arc to keep up. Now Michigan wants to do the same, and they look the same.

The darlings of March Madness, Loyola (IL), a microscopic school in Chicago, have finally lost. MI faces Villanova at 9:20 p.m. ET Monday for the national title in San Antonio.

Notre Dame defeated Mississippi State 61-58 on a three-pointer by Arike Ogunbowale with 0.1 seconds left to capture their second women's national championship.

Michigan, which is aiming to snatch its first national championship since 1989, is in the title game for the second time in six years. Deadly 3-point shooting and an abundance of offensive options make this team a death machine for any coach to have to handle. The Wildcats scored an NCAA-record 18 three-point shots against Kansas in their last game.

Cimini knows Nova is only the fifth team since the NCAA Tournament field expanded to 64 in 1985 to win each of its first five games by double digits.

The 3-point line will undoubtedly make the difference in the game.

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

The Wildcats won the Big East Conference Championship and earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. And while some of its wins were authoritative, others were close, such as the second-round game against Houston won on Jordan Poole's buzzer-beater, or Saturday night's gritted-out victory over No. 11 Loyola-Chicago.

On the flip side, Villanova's Omari Spellman and Eric Paschall can provide matchup problems for MI because they, too, can stretch the floor, but no one matches Wagner's motor. The question for the Wildcats is if the MI defense will be able to slow it down. The point guard averages 19.2 points per game and adds 4.7 assists per contest.

This Fab Five, Michigan's scout team, prepares the players in the regular rotation behind closed doors.

Brad: More cold air coming in
EXTENDED: We'll have a cold, mostly cloudy start to the day Friday with morning lows in the low to mid 30s. The beginning of next week will see cooler daytime highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

To sum things up, Villanova was feelin' it Saturday night.

Still, if the Wolverines end Monday night on top, nobody can deny that they faced the toughest of competition.

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.

Brunson is not flashy, he just gets it done.

Forward Eric Paschall converted on almost all of his shots beyond the arc, pouring in four 3-pointers on five attempts.

MAAR played yet another dismal game on offense, a trend that seems to have him in a tournament long funk.

THE SIDEKICKS: Wagner and Brunson are the headliners for their teams, but both have excellent sidekicks.

Welcome to VAVEL USA's LIVE coverage of the 2018 Final Four championship game: Michigan Wolverines vs. Villanova Wildcats!

"They'll be hard for anyone to deal with", Self said, "if they shoot the ball like that". But Michigan hasn't beaten a Top-5 seed yet.

Then again, in their Elite Eight game versus Texas Tech - like MI, a No. 3 seed - the Wildcats made just four of 24 three-point attempts. It also employs a 1-2-2 full-court press that it will use to change the pace and force turnovers.
