KU Jayhawks arrive in San Antonio

KU Jayhawks arrive in San Antonio

Here are five reasons to believe the Villanova Wildcats will defeat the Kansas Jayhawks in the Final Four Saturday night.

MI last made the Final Four in 2013.

You could argue all of those teams were more talented than this one.

We come one step closer to history this Saturday as the Final Four matchup between Kansas and Villanova will take place. The Cardinals have won their four tournament games by 32, 18, 27 and 33 points. But they have just one ring to show for it, which they just happened to win the last time San Antonio's Alamodome hosted the event a decade ago.

Six schools featuring ten Australians reached the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Division I women's tournament, but by the end of the regional finals just one remained as Chloe Bibby and Mississippi State advanced to the Final Four in Columbus, Ohio. "I don't think players and coaches are going to enjoy it that much, like the fans will", he said. "You have to be able to adjust and the fact that we have had experience doing that is important".

"The good thing is, I think our guys have a good understanding and respect for everybody in this tournament, so I don't think they would even think that this is the national championship game", Wright said. Villanova breezed through most of the regular season with the only noticeable dip happening in early February when the Wildcats lost two of three including a home loss to Big East bottom feeder St. John. Brunson averaged 21.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists in Boston. Equally as surprising was the 71-59 beating they handed Texas Tech in the Elite Eight round.

The Kansas Jayhawks found themselves with another No. 1 seed after everyone thought that they wouldn't even win the Big 12. You can make that normal. "We haven't always been good here". Loyola-Chicago has a great story and they're hot, having just blown out Kansas State University.

"We want to win the game, but is winning the game more important than to make sure there's not a little distraction for Doke?"

"It's not normal, I don't care what any coach says", said Mike Rhoades, head coach at VCU now and assistant coach for the Rams during that Final Four run.

Malik Newman has taken his game to a higher level during the NCAA Tournament. Projected second round picks in senior Devonte' Graham (17 points, 4 rebounds, and 7 assists per game) and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (14 points, 4 rebounds) carry the workload for the Jayhawks, while projected National Basketball Association lottery pick Mikal Bridges (18 points, 5 rebounds per game) and projected second rounder Jalen Brunson (19 points, 5 assists per game) spearhead the offense for the Wildcats. That said, this Final Four is a dream for college basketball fans.

"Can you imagine you've never seen your son play basketball and the first time you do is in front of 70,000 people at this thing", Coach Bill Self said. "I can't allow him to have a big offensive rebounding night against us on game day". It's going to come down to execution in this national semifinal.

Notre Dame is a resilient team, overcoming four ACL injuries to players to earn a trip to the Final Four. I don't know what other word to use.
