The Funniest Tweets From Villanova's NCAA Championship Win Over Michigan

Villanova rips Michigan for second title in three seasons

SAN ANTONIO - Phil Booth laughed about it on Sunday when the topic was brought up.

From a historical standpoint, this is the first time a city has been home to both the Super Bowl Champion and the victor of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.

Maybe so, considering the way Wright's team dismantled everyone in front of it in a tournament that was dripping with upsets, underdogs and parity.

The No. 3 seeded Michigan Wolverines, led by Moritz Wagner, meet the No. 1 seeded Villanova Wildcats, led by Jalen Brunson, in the 2018 NCAA Tournament championship on Monday, April 2, 2018 (4/2/18) at Alamodome in San Antonio Texas.

DiVincenzo scored 31 points off the bench and Villanova shut down MI from the perimeter to beat the Wolverines 79-62 Monday night in the NCAA championship game.

Though the Notre Dame players all said they felt confident in Ogunbowale's shot, it wasn't necessarily the play they would have drawn up. "To have that being [said] is something really cool to hear".

The only Villanova players who actually ran out of eligibility when the game-clock hit 00:00 on Monday night were the three walk-ons: two seniors and a graduate student. The Wildcats haven't had a single-digit margin of victory since February.

Beilein's message helped remind the Wolverines that was them just last weekend in Los Angeles.

After the game, freshman Jermaine Samuels of Franklin sat at his locker soaking in a national title that he won while scoring a grand total of 1 point in the tournament. This was just one of the lows. Some on the team said he was better at doing Oklahoma star Buddy Hield than Hield himself. "If you don't give Villanova the respect it deserves now - it's a blueblood program". Sure, the thought of an opportunity to go after winning a NBA championship along with a hefty pay raise after winning two national championships at the college level may seem tough to turn down, but also Wright understands how great of a thing he now has going at Villanova.

A massive spark from Donte DiVincenzo and a defensive turnaround turned Villanova's second national title in three years into a rout. "We should be mentioned up there". Never again. Wright's energy and attention would be centered on assembling a true team.

DiVincenzo's teammates said their injured comrade did such a good job impersonating Hield that they had a much easier time defending the real deal. "That was really cool'". On Monday night, as Brunson struggled with foul trouble and missed shots, DiVincenzo was simply the next man up.

MI started well as Villanova took time to find their feet and shoot well.

MI had their best run in the 1st Half with 16:17 on the clock. These Wildcats did the extra everything: set the extra screen, made the extra fake, waited the extra second before finding the eventual points. They got to the rim, got to the free throw line and got baskets in transition. He scored 18 of Villanova's first 34 points on the way to a career-high 31.

DiVincenzo became the first non-starter to win most outstanding player of the Final Four since Luke Hancock in 2013 Louisville, and the first player with a 30-point NCAA championship game since Miles Simon of Arizona in 1997 against Kentucky.

DiVincenzo scored 18 of Villanova's first 32 points. Wright and his staff carry a chart around that projects every player's next three seasons. Together. Villanova basketball for 40 minutes. If you're looking for the key to how a team wins two titles in three years, that's it.

DiVincenzo's starring role sealed Villanova's third national college basketball title, two years after the Pennsylvania college clinched its second crown in 2016.
