Here Are 5 Reasons Why Villanova Can Win The National Championship”

The victor will meet the Michigan-Loyola-Chicago victor in the national championship game Monday night.

The 13-point margin at halftime marked the biggest lead of the game and was the biggest deficit Texas Tech has faced in the NCAA Tournament.

The 6-3 junior is being presented with the award Thursday at the Final Four, where the Wildcats are chasing their second national championship in three seasons. One more victory would tie the 35 wins accomplished by the 2016 team.

But if these two Catholic schools - one Jesuit, one Augustinian - meet in the national championship game, the Wildcats won't be without spiritual support of their own.

Brunson's surprising post presence is representative of his ability to truly do it all for the Wildcats, who enter this weekend's Final Four as national title favorites. But they're hardly defined by just shooting because they hit just 4 of 24 treys against the Red Raiders yet managed to win. "We're proud every step of the way", Wright said.

"We knew they were a great 3-point shooting team and talented players, but we also knew how tough they were", Texas Tech coach Chris Beard said.

Guard play makes a major difference in NCAA Tournament games and Brunson is the best guard in the country.

Villanova starters Jalen Brunson, Phil Booth, and Mikal Bridges were all members of their national championship team two years ago and they're the only team remaining in the field that has players with Final Four experience, let alone championship experience.

Texas Tech had never reached the Elite Eight in the 93-year history of the program but easily handled Purdue in the Sweet 16.

"We try to be the best we can be by the end of the year, and to outrebound that team and hold them to 33 percent, that was definitely our best defensive effort of the year", said Wright. "You can't dwell at all on not making shots".

"We consistently had very good players", Wright said.

"Boston was really good to us last time and I hope Texas is the same".

"Jalen Brunson is the most essential force on a terrific Villanova team, both a team player and dynamic individual talent", USBWA president Vahé Gregorian of The Kansas City Star said.

Kansas advanced to its 15th Final Four - and its third under head coach Bill Self - with its win against Duke. He's the first Villanova player to win the AP award.

The trophy's namesake, "The Big O", was on hand at the Alamodome, site of this weekend's Final Four, to announce Brunson as the victor. "As soon as we get back to campus, in the film room, on the court, we're recovering, and we're going to get better". "Even though you say you're so close, we're still light years away from doing what we want to do".

"You've got guys that won a national championship. I think his toughness and intangibles. are at the top of that list". To get there, Brunson and the Wildcats will have to go through another No. 1 seed with a veteran guard seeking to cement his legend, the Jayhawks and their sharp-shooting leader Devonte' Graham.

Kansas and Villanova have few weaknesses. "We came short of what the ultimate goal was, but just for us digging down and us going through injuries. we took a lot of pride with it". "You know, we play through a big with his back to the basket; they don't".
