After historic nights for each respective program, Michigan and Villanova will meet in the national championship game on Monday. Michigan’s power forward junior Moritz “Mo” Wagner was no match for the Cinderella story of Loyola Chicago. He scored 24 points and 15 rebounds, joining only two other players (Larry Bird and Hakeem Olajuwon) to do so in a national semifinal. Overall, Michigan was underwhelming until the last 10 minutes of the second half. Wagner will be Villanova’s big problem. Omari Spellman and Wagner will be an interesting matchup to look out for during the national game. Spellman is the one of Michigan’s worries though because they really need to look out for the three-point line. In the semifinal vs Kansas, they set the record for most threes in a season (454) and set the record for most threes in a national semifinal (18), breaking UNLV’s record (13) in the first half. Michigan should be a little worried because everyone, from guard to forward, on Villanova can shoot from the three. In order to win, Michigan has to be on their A-game. Not just Wagner, but everyone. Villanova is a 6.5 point favorite, but this has been a tournament of upsets.
