NCAA Championship Game Time: Villanova vs

And they've continued that blistering pace during the tournament, knocking down 66 threes (another NCAA record) in five games, including 18 against Kansas (a Final Four record).

Villanova's student section is at the south end of the Alamodome court, the same as it was Saturday night when the Wildcats beat Kansas. The Wildcats then beat Maryland, North Carolina and Memphis State before their championship-clinching victory over Georgetown.

Naturally, both of these methods will be proved wrong someday, just as Syracuse proved both of them wrong in the 2003 NCAA tournament.

The Wildcats and their horde of long-range shooters are playing for their second title in three years, a chance to establish a mini dynasty.

Essentially, you have arguably the best three-point shooting team of all-time going up against one of the best three-point defensive teams in the nation.

With a lineup full of tall, athletic players who can create their shots and drain them, Villanova is recalculating the risk-reward equation of the three. The Wolverines have won 14 games in a row and Villanova has won 10 straight.

The late Rollie Massimino used to write a number on the board before games that he coached at Villanova and elsewhere, setting a target for the total of points allowed that he thought would guarantee victory.

On the other side of the court is MI, which made the title game thanks to John Beilein's analytic-based approach to defense.

MI is 38 of 120 (31.7) from 3-point range in the tournament, but opponents are 18 of 75 (24.0) from 3-point range. "It's how we like to play, as well, but it doesn't mean we can stop it".

Villanova and MI, prolific offense vs. stifling defense, a national title on the line, Monday night in San Antonio. The Wolverines are on a 14-game winning streak, suffering their last loss almost two months ago. Having flown under the radar for much of the season, the Wolverines did not make an appearance in the AP Top 25 until the week of January 22. MI has been trending under: Over its past seven NCAA tournament games, the under is 5-1-1. The Wolverines won the Big Ten tournament and now just one win away from winning the NCAA tournament. That included a record-setting effort against the Jayhawks in which the Wildcats hit 18 of 40 from 3-point range.

Facing a team that shoots as well as Villanova, limiting the takes from 3-point range is about as important as limiting the makes. Michigan's defense is good, but it isn't that good. All of the above expect the Wildcats to win their second national title in three years. Point guard Zavier Simpson said defending the 3-point line is largely an effort in effort.

With both teams turning the ball over with such rarity, it will be interesting to see which squad can win the turnover battle on Monday night. "I don't. It's hard to even comprehend it", referred Villanova head coach Jay Wright to the fact of winning the national title in 2016 and disputing another NCAA final tonight.

There are few seasons in the history of MI basketball that have been more magical than the 2017-18 season. MI had an 11-3 record in those games.
