Villanova defeated MI 79-62 in Monday's title game in San Antonio, setting off a raucous celebration around the suburban Philadelphia campus. Here's what that looked like for the Wolverines and their fans. In between, they chased a freshman around a court in the middle of Kansas, celebrating the most exciting win of the NCAA Tournament. And by the end of the game, he had scored 31 points and become the Final Four's Most Outstanding Player.

One-and-done players like Marvin Bagley III and Michael Porter Jr. have the natural athleticism (not to mention almost 84 inches of God-given height for each of them) to ensure some level of success, likely more than any of these Villanova guys will have, but the education they've received both on and off the court sets them up for a solid future in whatever they choose to do, and that's something worth noticing.

On this night, with a national championship on the line, it was a fitting reminder that this Wildcats team is more than just a remarkably good 3-point shooting team.

"When we got to the 2009 Final Four and we lost the first game, I thought that was my shot", Wright said. They went into the half up 37-28 and came out of it just as strong.

They did so even if the first, furious moments of Monday night did wreak for them a pile of apparent inconvenience. His first points of the game came on a three-pointer at the 12:44 mark, and they signaled the beginning of the end for Michigan's national championship dreams. You know what the past players went through, and it's just so cool to be a part of.

"That would be nice", he said. On Monday, no such shot was needed.

Slater will be joining a Wildcats team that figures to again be loaded next season, even with the expected departures of Bridges and Brunson.

Now, consider this: Wright joins only Duke's Mike Krzyzewski and North Carolina's Roy Williams as active coaches with more than one NCAA men's basketball championship.

"And then when we got the whole team back, right before we headed in the Big East Tournament, we really had the opportunity to hammer away at our defensive habits and principles". "I'll tell you honestly, I do not count myself in that category. We like the team and we like Villanova and everything", said Maria Concordia who works on campus. MI may not have matched any of these teams' best qualities-but they didn't lack a high level of any one of them, either.

DiVincenzo has now deleted his Twitter account.

Despite being a true freshman who averaged a little more than 14 minutes per game, Gillespie has already been inducted into this continuum.

The Delaware native was 14 years old at the time of the posts. "Obviously, I'm not with the whole college thing so I don't care about that". There he's just "Uncle Day", because 2-year-old John Michael can't yet pronounce "Donte". During games, he waves at the TV when Donte comes on the floor, and runs to kiss the screen anytime there's a close-up of his favorite uncle.

"I think everything happens for a reason", assistant coach Ashley Howard said.

He didn't cool in the second half. In their semifinal game against Kansas, they had 20 assists on 36 made baskets - and assists on 12 of the 18 made 3-pointers.

It did not matter that national player of the year Brunson struggled most the night, going just 4-of-13 and scoring nine points. Villanova started 1 for 9 from 3-point range.
