USA Today Unveils Final Four, National Championship Predictions

Villanova vs. Kansas Preview & Prediction: Which One Seed Will Advance To The Title Game?

The Villanova Wildcats are on their way to San Antonio on Wednesday, bound for the Final Four. Also how KU could out-rebound Duke by a bunch. The game tips about 7:50 p.m. on TBS.

UConn's 111-game winning streak was stopped at this point last season when Mississippi State won their semifinal on a last-second shot by Morgan William in overtime.

Richardson made 6 of 7 3-pointers in that game and shoots 40 percent from behind the arc, part of the 11th-seeded Ramblers' deep range of shooters who will need to come through against a MI defense ranked fourth by KenPom in adjusted efficiency (91.1 points allowed per 100 possessions). But this year's group is special for the fact that it's overcome a lot of adversity and doubt (even from its own coach) to get here.

The 49-year-old Moser worked as an assistant for the late Majerus at Saint Louis for four seasons in between a stint as Illinois State head coach and taking the Loyola job in 2011. The #3 seeded Bruins were coming off an outstanding 84-75 win over #2 seed Texas, a game in which Horvat played just two minutes but buried a corner three with her only shot of the game in the first half. Kansas's Devonte' Graham and Villanova's Jalen Brunson, both of whom are consensus first-team All-Americans and finalists for multiple national player of the year awards, will be the two focal points of the matchup. But who are the Villanova Wildcats? . In my opinion, Duke had more player depth but KU played pretty well in OT. The Wolverines are the third best team in the country in terms of defensive efficiency and have kept their opponents below 1.0 points per possession throughout the tournament so far.

As the Wildcats prepare for Saturday's Final Four semifinal against Kansas at the Alamodome, ponder this roll call of coaches whose programs have not reached 30 wins in four straight seasons. "We're proud every step of the way", Wright said. Not so great numbers compared to what he'd been putting up all season. MI finished fourth in an up-and-down Big 10 conference, but is playing its best basketball when it matters most. MI is 32-7 (13-5) on the year and won Big Ten Tournament in 2018.

That being said, Loyola has been the underdog in all four of their tournament games up to this point. The shot ripped Houston's heart out and seemed to give MI an extra bounce in its step. All-American forward Napheesa Collier (15.9 points and 7.5 rebounds per game) is playing very well. Whether they try to post up near the bottom of the lane or force him to run along the perimeter, he's grateful for the chance to play in the Final Four. The Wildcats are the best team left in this tournament and have the most potent offense in the nation, averaging 87 points per game.

Malik Newman has been the offensive star for the Jayhawks this postseason, however, scoring 87 points through four NCAA tournament games, a number only surpassed in Kansas history by Danny Manning in 1988 (107). At least four teams have overlooked the Ramblers up to this point.

Sister Jean has become a national (excuse me, international) treasure over the past few weeks during Loyola University Chicago's shocking run to the Final Four, but she's been ballin' long before March Madness began. Blue Valley Northwest grads Clayton Custer and Ben Richardson have played huge roles for the Ramblers.
