All season long and it comes down to this And the tip goes to crusted the National Player of the Year Jim Nantz grant a little bit him put him Wolverines And if the quick post up already from Simpsons right over him for the easy basket Back to men to the paint.
He's able to take advantage of his size matchup Jalen Brunson Villanova's best post up player first position going right out sensing a Lot of pick and slip a lot of ball screens trying to establish low And a little hook in his game nice footwork Left-hand shot – how about that little lingerie liquor in there the big fella the heck gonna start some matchup to watch right? What'd you talk about Spellman against partner? Exactly how Kansas started if you remember? I was a bookie amid a low post life as he did and then the Mogul went on a run and gained control Really? Make it a little statement here at the start.
He's been that too many meetings stupidy Awards.
Not gonna have anything left Hasn't hit the rim and the two shots amazing Then the side to side so you have to force it to play one-on-one Fill it up his defense and Michigan's have really improved To the basket this time will shoot free throws Right now the Stars for both team really going at each other vogner hit nice ball fake Footwork finish and then Brunson doing what he's done.
All season just takes his time gets the shot He wants every possession and right there when he's hitting shots like that It's gonna be a long night draws a quick foul on Spelman at 24:15 performance on Saturday.
You've always seen that kind of potential in him we've seen him a lot the last two years Olajuwon –is– this was That's singer since 79 only Olajuwon from Houston Larry Bird in 79 had a final four Semifinal game with 24 points at least in 15 rebounds those two guys that listen appropriately there today and this kid probably will a Keeper And faced that modern-day Pick and pop three right now, Michigan.
We know they're one of the best teams that got into three-point line Let's see if Villanova gets into shot fakes and continuing to tap the paint off the dribble Bronson wants it again now, Ginetta Look for another option able to get it back out.
They don't mind tough.
Tuesday will another they'll take what you get.
Good day That's rock when it comes wait winner Take it on booth and Landon up and in for the late at six four and he is the key He has to come out be aggressive on both ends offensively giving Michigan's some points like on that last play bill Oh, no, he's got to go side to side a little bit.
Don't just settle on the immediate hit one on one.
I think Move Buckner away just like this see how they cover That every cover well Spellman now He is too strong with the short shot This is when they're tough to early hit particularly when Robinson comes in Matthew's Driving in it slides off the rim nearly wet and he too will have a couple Disability with that drive pretty impressive, but here anytime you turn it over that point on the floor You're gonna pay dearly for pretty good hustle on the defensive end, but coffin enough leads to these easy opportunities whistle on booth and Matthews who has been Michigan's leading scorer in the five tournament games at 17 against Louisville, Chicago on Saturday and a couple of big Baskets in the second half watch tonight's game on your computer phone tablet or streaming device with NCAA March Madness live watch now at ncaa.
com March Madness or Download the app and Jim free-throw shooting could become crucial down the end Michigan not as good as they would like to be struggle around 66% but this kid can really go left as he did that life sparse over to the rim that Mattoon rolls out Spillman has honor of a whistle he goes out for Villanova and Jim I think this is advantage seat home because Pasco can really move magner away from the goal should open up opportunities Attack of the rim.
Yeah, they got David Chen zou and Foreman there's another Layne Matthews Over the rock mind Great close outs by both teams early this match inside Bogner.
They don't mind it really good weak side help by Villanova There's a pickup pot Like you should go right now to get it back with britches on Buckner gives it a open corner rock mom who struggled from the floor on Saturday.
Well, they need him badly He's such a talented kid.
Did you've notice with Michigan? They are not double teaming inside when the ball goes in there They're opting to stay with the shooters That was the first three-point attempt by either side of this game and there's the ice on the lake for the pinch pose for bridges Pascal what's why not race challenge It was pretty good defender which size Simpson slows down goes back Tiger.
He's gonna launch he's gonna heads How about that? That mismatch size-wise run said the only one in the area that early outfits in push the big fella rise in big time Made more threes than any player individual 1 6 feet 11 or torn They have gotten so much better defensively Michigan.
That's why they're on this street Bridges gives it up Haskell underneath doubled on outside meters step to the hole lost it for a moment Michigan got a hand on it Wolverine faithful wanted a double triple Here's the shukaku front of the ramp and add as Pascal.
We got it back tapped Isso bridges was able to hit it big time.
You're right Jim.
That's the activity of Pascal Murray active around the rim He's big strong and tough and graph right now, though Michigan is making it difficult for Villanova every shot at tip except for that last one.
It's very tough Villanova.
Nothing easy thus far You know the work done there many three attempts.
Usually we like to prevent it Simpson The bridge is a great defender on top has to go back outside clockers pascal defending Right now he's playing with so much confidence continuing with his performance of Saturday night setting the tone early for the Wolverines And then about the Oscar gave a little Paschal just hugged him.
He should have backed off Where they hand up? Pat's core That one doesn't go he missed only one shot out of 11 attempts on Saturday.
He's old for two at the star here Every night is a different horse race.
We know that In the paint back outside hoping his bath use its a three And it's cleared by booth and vogner's fired able to go at him he just has to come out of the game little North Carolina job and The whistle booth to the hole in the hoop negative splint to the under-16 without a whistle and vogner's exhausted him He wants a double fist that was great awareness there by foot.
That sure was right at the big fella Nice shot fake getting to the rim.
And as you know, where do you rest on defense watch him that will get a touch I'll be alright Fatigue goes back outside sadness traveling coal juicy steaks Boutique play turn two in a row cost him dearly let the pig fella doing a great job about nine points early three four three the last four Naismith award winners to win a national title Danny Manning and 88 Christian Laettner Shane Battier and Anthony Davis.
Those are the last four to win the Naismith and a national title Which Munson is trying to achieve tonight? That's tipped by Matthews who's had two defensive gems, and he gets blocked from behind and no foul But not a bounce off Pascal hustle because you are watching the national broadcast on TBS For team centric coverage check out the Villanova team cast on truTV or the Michigan teamcast on tnt run tickets one more word will match Grant Hill and With cotton or the bench teske on the floor along with Duncan Robinson.
This is rock my sign for Coach be mine side and a sigh of relief by here, bitch is a Right now early billing over just out of sorts offensively a lot of deflections a few turnovers Uncharacteristic for the Wildcats they gotta execute their offense Moving Spelman around and ball screen situations get testy away from the room This activity by the Wolverines this extra hustle contesting every shot too tough shot.
That's pesky with the rebound boxing out Spellman who's back on the floor high in the back Rock Mon two in a row.
No pulled down Pascal Don't get in one of those running games with the cats.
You got to take good shots.
The jetty zone comes off their badge Clark doesn't peerless they are catch break your guy down and drill it or first three of the night for the Wildcats They went bogging around you just got to trust your office for Michigan pretty Drive every lays He is really a talented kid.
One of the great ice.
So break down people against a heck of a defender Botner liked what he saw Rahman raised about an hour away from the Villanova campus in Allentown, Pennsylvania Now deep in tins otech sauce Gets the basket and one and that's when they open up the middle give the driving lane Make it available in quiz you can gents are pretty good at that.
How about this against bridges? No weak side help You gotta stay home with the shooter.
You got Robinson in one area, and that's what they do They deploy beautifully but look at the different defenders from Michigan.
Everybody's guarding the three-point line that one-on-one Opportunity for Villanova will be there getting to the rim against the Michigan defense So vogner comes back out after that, nine-point start hitting all three from the field including a Triple deep in chin.
So who's the third leading scorer for the Wildcats Sixth Man of the Year and the Big East and You see the initials there for? The late legend the man who led Villanova to his first national championship, Rollie, Massimino passed away last August 30 great friends of yours, of course ours such an influence on Jay and Villanova Great family as well Gorton cool here.
Take it on Pascal Dipsy.
Do it goes They know that matchup and that's the one thing Jay told both of us.
Yes, they're all three of us They should say they know who died.
So on who we can take off the bounce.
Not too bad Jordan It is Oh pull able to finish big time Pascal a little bit late Billy a kid at the line here who knocked you sent out With a pure shot the you haven't spoken to him since that's not true Poole completes the three-point play he's got some judges love this kid energy.
It's got all the handshakes the dance moves Reminding myself when I was younger.
I'm sure I know there's no tape, but it may be some film of the head still around a Big thing here fouls turnovers and rebounds.
Those are the keys.
Those silly fouls don't give second possessions Don't clump it up and both of these teams really value the ball Go over the 10 turnovers and of course, Michigan at that 9 number So Pascal to the bench ridges in that whistle was on Simmons who's come on the floor for the first time for the Wolverines It's not a circle around that Wolverine they got a little you pop it there Run so smart, right? There craft is so little initiating the contact Making the officials make that call right there and kind of selling it a little bit and your National Player of the Year You can do that get a little attention get some balls you today.
Oh, there you go So Robinson's first Robinson the key guys, you know, we can make those open shots.
So you got to lock in on him It opens up driving lanes for others six man of the year and the big ten is so it speaks to the importance they could have the Conference Player of the Year As a six men on each side.
Here's the other one D Vincenzo hit look at this hustle keeping it alive And those are the possessions they valued riches They got a pal here at Robinson again number two, well that really hamstrings them too we talked about 5050 balls right now and Bridges from the top of the key running in here get in the office rebound then deep deep in shinzo Give me some extra extra effort.
It looks like Robinson raised his elbow call for that foul But you got a block out and through the Wolverines on defense as you said rap That's two on Robinson who asked to come out and Matthews Fleur the interesting aspect with that is grant knows you have to play Robinson.
It gives really ample opportunity to penetrate No votes just one out of seven point three.
This is the two coming up short for Spelman Nice job by vogner Beirut force it a little bit no arc Automatic switching John Beilein says gives them to trouble we saw that with Loyola I slept on a big guy Never with two defenders on him Say what concentration the weak side help came, but Bogner able to finish Certainly, Michigan continuing to try to get the ball to the big fella They have been very efficient Jeff on the offensive end.
Hold on been struggling with his excellent day Michigan Michigan raising the lead to 21 14 Ronson riches open look One out of eight from three now the Wildcats and on the line It'll stay at this end the counter to the switches.
The big thing is slipping screens and this guy is excellent at it.
Good read international flavor at the rim Owed it Huh at that encounter look at them the concentration and to be able to finish that was not an easy play inside by vogner I'm so impressive Michigan's defense doing a lot of switching on the road That's good Forced to go back outside step up for a – there's a teddy Joe He's come off the bench now and put up eight points He's a fake starter though Jim, but they do the best job I think in the country of Pop faking get you to bite and making you pay That is slip again, he's got him he wants him Michigan shooting 67% fuckin good hands on the floor Haskell has it unlocked or ties him up and it's an arrow that belongs to Michigan as they untangle The two battling for it Right now then you love this effort great hands by bridges But look at the bodies on the floor that ball belongs to them and they're fighting for it That's championship effort right there by both ball clubs They'll try to calm mo down just a little bit he does get into the game They have seven to shoot Force the ball to the corner could be a pin and then a slip Rockman Booth trying to smother him Buckner gets Deepa Jinzo to commit that's all there and it comes to bridges quickly that time Genzo Rahman hit him across the face Inadvertently and they had balance so he didn't have to foul Simmons in the back there unnecessary giveaway, you don't want to put them on the free-throw line too early First on a Brockman and Simpson comes in for Simmons and he has not been able to turn the corner or look to on the offensive end Michigan has a taller livers right now on Brunson You try to keep him from getting inside tells me that my good livers you know that David Jinzo takes it to the page and unable to finish face challenge at the rim, though.
Hoodie should have jammed that he's capable He can elevate now Move trying to hold them off.
We got the hand on ya Bleacher Report's original animated series game of zones is returning for the playoffs watch game of zones only on the free Bleacher Report app John Beilein recognizing getting the big guy little blow pesky in My good they want to keep him fresh.
He made a couple of mistakes when he got tired.
So booth goes out with a second The less becomes pawns of the floor Freshman forged coach, right? They got the mismatch in there were a little great job running Matthews now Has to come back I five to shoot Challenging the freshmen who's all over shots up And it's over the top of the backboard shot clock violation of putting over that fantastic Defense right here as a freshman going against Matthews one of Michigan's greatest best One-on-one players, but forcing him into a tough side By this time on Saturday night Villanova was starting the show seven out of 14.
That would go all the way to 18 makes I've never seen anything like it.
This is for their second of the night and it spins around and out Percent at Kansas the players kick Look at that block out Brunson inside it gets the taller Teske seven one Inside against Brussels in a 6-3 make it all those threes really got Michigan ready to defend against it these scrappy hands I'm not a good foul there by pesky Look at Brunson.
He's like trying to get his team fired up Until my comeback would smell but I see him up Very tough when you drive on that big guy, he's got to move those Puppies and this kid is a leader strawberry.
He does not get fatigued either sixth team foul first on Teske Spellman is back on the floor the Jets Bridges and elevate and that one gets the dead bounce and he's the god bridges has to have an impact be aggressive Get it to the basket can do so much with his team must be big tonight.
Good reading at Simpson to Rock bomb sure Hey, that's Spellman in position.
We're gonna get out to David Chen's Oh on the wing brunson to the paint spin around and Short of the rep that good chop.
My matches stay down on that bone for a Teske almost walks a Pal giveaway again the silly way puts him on a one-on-one.
That was Matthews Both teams right now leaving it on the court.
We have a good one here guys One in one for Kevin, Gillespie minded of anyone a little bit You can never say the kid's name.
GJ right says when I saw spatially like Archie do know you just saw Tracy Morgan is the last og a new comedy premieres tomorrow at 10:30 p.
m On TBS great to see Brian here and what a credit to this program He has been and even Jay Wright will tell you that the culture was changed a really the program It became something different when when Ryan and Daniel Ochefu showed up on campus for the first time and he picked up a charge A big day to mcafee.
It's actually more year captain and he went out with a title So did Daniel towards last six points to Nova? Sigma get fuckin involved in the screening situation.
Spellman Ava's comfortable out here playing the big guy once again that slip and hesitation and they got him if they wanna Use steps yes indeed great defense inside by the big fella Simmons Spellman Excuse me sliding his feet Both clubs are really playing championship be have left that little slip then he locks his guy and they don't it was all dead Yeah, exactly.
You've got to take advantage It's good defensive teams.
You may get one opportunity Not to pursue it So Michigan's missed its last five and turned it over a couple of times so not getting the results it had or early Villanova only one assist on their eight made baskets a lot of one-on-one play and a lot of missed shots so far for this Wildcat bad way bridges nice job by levers to spotting enough twisting away from the rim Watch pool with this matchup here with Spelman, you know, he loves that three Over four minutes without a field goal partner Hung on the rim for a while and broke mine able to pick it up set up Simpson and that Spellman as Poole was flying in and Spellman was able to overpower it although in one of those grunt games like Texas Tech right now that kind of style nothing coming easy toothaches Look how far out this is He's shot that from Wilmington And what did he say to you they played soccer it's a what – Tony high score – yeah – played organized basketball – his freshman year in high school you started when you were 2 or 3 grand.
That's what he did there was Just a sophomore at Villanova He's back with a drive to the basket Really all alone out there was bridges Nobody could rake or hell he's got to do a better job containing first bucket in 5 minutes and 12 seconds Better wood Spelman antelope rose more things can get that.
Nice slip by the big guy in the back Yeah ever snows gonna be no stopping Spellman otherwise Exactly, but Dee Vincenzo while this is confidence right here had a game in the sweet 16 against, Alabama We had a big night in the first half and Rock mom the senior so steady attacking getting to the rim taking advantage of the mismatch both players stepping up big And arrested Brunson comes in the improvement I think the Gillespie's game injured that hand December 10th came back January 1 of three guys that got hurt And when they came back they were deeper team One and while for the freshman from Cleveland His mother and father both Division one basketball players at Youngstown State He's got a brother who has already committed to playing at temple next year and he's got a sister as one of the highest recruits In the country and he is his stock has just improved.
I think his game has taken another level And he's got another family member who certainly made the most out of his career London Fletcher Who was one of the great NFL players to come to pound? Plate the family.
Yeah, he has trimmed down speaking of pounds He is a solid guy more athletic than that body belies Biggie's freshman of the year Rich is out front on this ones who want his length gives a lot of problems.
Just trying to disrupt the rhythm and flow Michigan's offense and then they get a little bit later in a shot clock My step men go on a set up but Matthews luster the way up fortunately for Michigan livers was there so Rahman has a chance Contestant.
Oh, it just comes off.
The rim free throws coming.
He is out right now.
Jay's playing a lot of cops We saw the three how about this little step and go very great read Have to be on alert You know, you got a triple handoff, you know, you got back cuts Michigan's so good at taking advantage of the matchup We saw that Matthews had a big guy on him set him up for that backdoor John Beilein one of the best offensive coaches with that One more coming for Rock Mon son of a coach his father Bob wood is the head coach at Lehigh carbon Community College And he's wearing that Michigan uniform tonight for the last time but the hundred and forty fourth time more than any player has ever worn The Michigan uniform he was fun talking about his dance.
I think this little excitement on the sidelines is a coach It's into the game Rahman has ten points on the night different story from Saturday Mission triangle look even Chen's Oh feeling it Goodness that's what makes them tough.
There's so many outs out there all of them shoot with such confidence at the Connelly Center on campus they love what deep in Shenzhen was doing with 14 off the bench and He's hit all three threes The Wildcats have on the board Simpson comes back as dancers with two Assistant known for getting to the basket thought about passing that but made the right decision great finish, but deep in Shenzhen He is playing with such confidence I should have started late He is such a tough matchup because of his athleticism at the rim as well Look at statement Chen's oh This is what happens in games like this You think it's Brunson? Maybe it Dickens bridges.
Don't fall asleep on these other guys Take the head and keep on ticket who I rap what I love about him.
As you said He's like the sixth starter for Villanova, but his confidence his belief in himself and Jay Wright gives him a little leeway Understands how great in the talented of a player he is Rahman out Back on the floor Spellman somehow ends up with it who's gonna shoot it again.
If it sets up there's that puppet now the plough effects Front Center believe number one.
It is Simpson is one of those guys that get into you the hallway Seat not beard Santa tone 30 26 at the under for Saw the graphic perhaps that he scored 16 even Genzo has 16 of the 30 and those 16 have come in a span here of eight and a half minutes As they come back from seven down and are on a 16 to 5 stretch the Wildcats to go up 4 This is an important time We can't close out the half these last four minutes feeling good right now clogging has got to get these touches pocket Deuce how about that Reed? Who's about to pick it up and kick it out? But you battle your buddy out step it go and finish big-time Just good things happen when partner gets the basketball coach.
It's amazing enough those the game You start calling them dirty Runs nice cutting-edge pants of his own to set up David James oh and both teams You've got to stay in home and see the ball and your man You can't sneak a peek get that head on the swivel.
That was just the second assistant bucket for Villanova Simpson It's going the other way Bottner says hey that was off Spellman.
I Think they I think they got it, right actually.
How about the pass right here? Tell your buddy out? And the other one have I'm ringing the bell here Grant Jalen Brennan Brunson the same thing great cut tremendous finished and you're right You're gonna have to play man-to-man defense guard your own player and stay at home with the help as you can see both teams falling Going after the basketball show any emotion and pride they want this Well, I wouldn't believe vogner because he thought he was saved the ball the other night and he almost destroyed us Did you notice grant that as he was heading to the sideline even though was 15 feet away? Over the table a wise man.
Yes indeed holding his myosin Bouncing.
All right, it's too strong Simpson will not back off.
He is a chesty tough kid Cool shakes free the defender unable to hit it And that was an impressive jab right there Nima Genzo ended up down on the Jersey Turnpike on that one Supervised a at Delaware Memorial.
All right, very close to it the way he's playing to become incorporated.
I assure you that Two minutes to go in the half Nice laughed aloud and Spellman takes it from who else T pinched Enzo? What else did well he else you want from that kid Brigid the hammer as well Simpson Maggert nice extra pest.
Let's get all the way around the Matthews.
They got a good shot.
They've got to make that though Complement the ball movement Wolverines have misfired on their last seven from beyond the arc that grant you brought this out the other night They're a great closing team villain over the last couple of minutes and they got an offense Even chenza is just killing them and RAM right here.
Watch how he froze him right here.
Great patience used his eyes Got the weak side to commit but just finding inside Spelman for the easy finish DVD Vincenzo putting on clinic here on the offensive end Michigan Minute 24 to go in the first half.
He said I said did your dad ever meet him? He said he met him once and he was in awe of Rollin, who would give him little pointers by shooting just do this do that.
They wouldn't leave until I applied it Show me first I'm not leaving until you do it.
You row it have some kind of influence on this game tonight First Robertson not in the game too many opportunities Open shot Hanging closes tough I think for Michigan without him on the floor like cleavage in zone They won't get it with the left hand.
We got 50 seconds to go move quickly taking it to the hole and giving it up Looked like he blocked that twice good up there Even says not giving up on the play just excellent effort When you right here in the left hand, you got a good tailor that doesn't happen, you know, pretty good We get both hands on it, you know He is an athlete this kid and they get the possession off the arrow with 46 seconds and see if they go two for one college teams do not Fools all the way the midcourt now Brunson steps up fires the three all my goodness Does he love daggers? She's good and ready for that? Yeah, we're letting roll up the floor looked ahead and said, you know what? They're gonna give me the space I'll take it Michigan's score of us now for three minutes Wildcats have the biggest lead at nine Scrambling on day Simpson funcle' SP not there Posner fadeaway tough shot.
They got one now I've got one and a timeout is bought by coach Wright To set up something in the final 12 seconds You Coming up on AT&T at the half Kenny Charles Clark and the guys have all the first half highlights and analysis coming up on AT&T at the half Again this was 2114 Wolverines at one time They came out strong right now, they need to stop at a rebound, Michigan a Twenty three to seven stretched since that time now with ten seconds Brunson Takes the shot quickly to punch Haskell trying to follow our on the floor and it's going to Michigan with two seconds That's the first time I've seen Jay say anything to Jalen Brunson he shrugged his shoulders like we get it got better dad Coach I got to this farm Ball almost women it did look good Two seconds.
They go to pool.
He's hit one miracle shot.
How about another no, I Thought for a chance there Michigan's got to come back the way they started the game course with Robinson with the two fouls now that opportunity to get him started They need some offensive flow and Villanova.
They can't rely too much on T pitches So others got to step up here in the second half Tracy over to you Thanks a lot coach deep and Genzo coming off the bench with 18 points How is he changed the game for you in the first half? Michigan is the best defensive team.
We played there taking everybody else away from us and Dante's got the ability to create shots on his own and that's what they're forced enough to do You've been able though to hold MOH vogner without a bucket for the last 15 minutes yet 11 in that first five So what have you been able to do to take him out of the game? Trying to do a better job of getting them keeping a ball out of his hands and all the screening action where they use him He was going against Omar Omar early in the games a freshman.
I don't know if he was ready for him But I think he's a little more comfortable now.
Thanks a lot the last 11 minutes What a struggle 20% They need Robinson to get six points or more.
No, how about that? Yeah First toy going inside the partner liked the first half he stepped to the hole for to Tracy right on the money with that call Get the big fella involved What happened somewhat a tough matchup That's not very good at the rim can bring them outside can drive to very physical performer three Goranson follow-up bridges for the lay up for you.
Got to check everybody on this team create anticipation around the ten Same plane for Michigan here comments offensive Macmorrow, huh? They're trying to set up that same play post up opportunity off the screen and roll You called it coach.
You have to block out Villanova one of the best attack in the class You can't turn your head and go to the ball.
You gotta find somebody put a body on them McHale bridges taking advantage about the speed to get there He came from the elbow on the opposite side that they Kerry Kittles frame.
He sure does There's now an assistant of Princeton when he could fill Elena his stack work Switch off over to Pascal jump shot.
Yes And that was May Pascoe.
He slipped the screen vogner stayed on Brunson and wide open great set by Jay Wright Michigan now with its largest tournament deficit to come back from Ten in the early minutes of the second half on Saturday against the Ramblers Pretty good job by Villanova.
He'll know that sliced cut forcing them late in the shot clock Got a pump deep inch Enzo got him put the body on that This is what you Grant that little slip to the side and that's so hard to defend right there Bargain are coming out to help Paschal really didn't set the screen the weak side unable to rotate Pascoe knocking down two three.
That's big for Villanova Here's Robinson now over three from the field make impression little Jim Let's go Sex it all the way to they'll assign around bottner about the speed and strength Boy, it defies that buddy.
I'm out Wolverines And right here pass go Inside reverse nice jab step get into the room Villanova 14:8 control in the second half And I think right now Michigan they started the second half They went inside to vogner who is able to convert one-on-one and they've gone away from that You have to get him the ball and touches it low You find out what you're made of not so much on this empathy other end soap.
They got an offensive found out downside breeches I think good at this card on pocket.
I Love this cut right here by Bogner Wide open they didn't look for but he was able to draw the foul right there Aggressively posting up he wants the ball.
He just needs to get his touches when you're struggling commission.
You got to run your stuff They did run their action that times perfect trap Fringe on the territory the cylinder so Bronson picks up his second after bridges a Few seconds earlier picked up his second grant told me the other day.
Don't ever invade my cylinder.
I Got right here.
He can't believe it That's what I did when I got my paycheck.
It's a long Run your stuff be patient.
They got the mismatch now Nougat enzo's sniffed it over there Sips it takes it to the paint ton shot tough kid This is the end you find that whether you gotta die reach back Proctor's got the tough patch I think up Concept powering his way And so strong so in control gets the shot that he wants Jalen Brunson the beautiful moon nine points on the night Shift that's when they move Pascal.
This is a tough lineup.
I think for Michigan's the defense Back over to vogner.
We move inside 10 to shoot Rolls off, but he'll be putting up a couple Brunson he had two quick baskets at the start with power moves inside and he did it here on Simpson again He is not afraid to get hit that there is he? Goodness, but they can invert whenever they want then.
He's doing a little refereeing as well, but it's interesting.
They started the game Lobosco got on mo.
He hugged them.
He's got to keep a little distance move those legs in contain Celebrate the 2018 national championship with officially licensed locker room T's hats and more for all your team apparel and accessories head to ncaa.
com slash shop His parents come in from Germany Piazza and his mother axel his father and he says to us He says, you know, I just see he's been quieted since that great start can't be around them for much more than ten minutes They're just so excited living the dream over here.
24/7 At the Final Four, I'd be excited if he were my son – that's Rebecca How about that visit to recruit him? Behind going over getting a home-cooked meal Ronson again.
Oh, he gives it up to Spelman for the three And Matthews Is gonna be charged with? That foul tried to check out the Vincenzo.
He should've taken that layup right at the rib, but that's how unselfish they are I think they can get a better.
I don't know how Brunson found Spelman in that situation How about that? amazing a Little push and number two on him post up d Vincenzo now on Simpson He wants to clear out Frontin cottage three Step in and buy Spellman.
How about the log armed with the reach back and a reverse off the glass? pretty Highest-ranked J right recruit Spellman Simpson behind the back Now bounces that underneath on the floor scooped up by Bronson look up deep magenta does look up he's got booth back outside Spellman get set fires off the mark and that's that play catch.
You get the pick of footing drilling There's it Nowhere to go.
So they'll dribble back away from Bronson doctor wants it on the left side rock men in Matthews very quiet offensively here in the second half of Michigan a Little bit to the post Oh Bronson tried the face.
It looked like his second my Watch out here mock never said some words for deep in chat.
Oh, oh something's happening here Spellman and vogner had to be separated right here Jam just a nice spin, but Extended his left arm got called for a foul then.
Some words were exchanged and a Double technical foul on boxer and on Spellman and he definitely got the offensive foul Frustration right there if deep magenta was shot he gets post bridges He got a ball So vogner gets hit with the personal and then later Part of the technical as well as Spellman on that double technical so both of the centers with three now in the game But spotting her on the bench Spellman also Taking off the floor Roundtree comes in for Villanova Both guys down to a good piece of coaching as well Teske the seven one Center back out for the Wolverines It's again to test your mettle can you get down and dig and scratch For most countries in the country on the sidelines as well So many ways they'd be to look at this dribble Drive and hustle That's the fifth offensive rebound a turnover right there.
Put the story of the game ten offensive rebounds for Villanova five in this half already Michigan must finish the defensive possession by securing the office or the Steep It's a glass Roundtree with that fumble does did a lot of little things in their game against Texas Tech Good hustle for the rebound then two turnovers, but he goes out bridges returns bridges tonight with six points four rebounds Automatic switch their tails your penetration Stay here.
They give it the pestle Robinson just can't get going.
That's some good looks thus far so important to this team And how about Michigan at the start hit two of its first four from three, but has now missed its last 11 Johnson comes back out and Jim I think when you're a good offensive team Like going over you forget how hard they play on the other end Bronson toward Gillespie.
Look at this even is denial they know the outer bounds of like perfect scouting Robinson and they get the switch again pool Fitness dividends Oh asset takes off Riches How many teams would have back that off with the two on for exactly why not let it go Right now mission you just can't do anything can't find anything Villanova's offense the defense has been so spectacular a tough shot by Robinson 1 on a glass great pursuit Such a force for this team these two bees the Josh Hart of this club Deep in chin.
So spice under yeah Robinson's able to make the steel into the hands of Poole Poole Driving spinning putting it well lost control of it, but it's last touch by Pascal And right here you said it two against four why not Bridges wide open not really getting involved offensive ly but just stepped up hit a big shot great concentration Rotation on the basketball pretty shot and keeping sins though.
He pushed it there found the open guy There they play loose and those two big guys come back out at the same time onto the floor Spellman and Bob Barker said shrugs his shoulders for a moment says hey, he's already holding me Is that little slice cut to the box automatic switch front and helps boots fighting him? Rockman stops back following he hits the three he knew those inches per mound.
He's had a nice night 13 Bangor has 14 Back at home, huh? This on this end right here defense has been the key this tournament for, Michigan And they have to get stops against these Wildcats.
Hey Matthews gets a nice deflection.
What going over is so tough? They don't have to diagram anything I mean they can beat you with the three a slip a drunk drivers almost like they don't have sets They have principles and they play out of those principles on the offensive end Bridges big step tough shot.
Somehow Shin recorded his body enough to make it that length you had that to the ability to extended finished appeal Thank yous Britches, but a foul call on the floor on the shot actually It's gonna be booth by my angle look like a charge, but I don't Brunson Oh, you know he's up above that heel above the line and I would call I think I think Matthews he has to get engaged here He was so good in that second half his little Chicago in a semifinal game attack in the basket He's got to continue to be a one-on-one player and have an impact here.
So Villanova has Pascal Spellman and Bronson all with three bigger rap battles bigger burns Method Man and Haley Baldwin host the TBS original series Dropped the mic.
It's all new April 15th on TBS would that offend you then drop that mic.
It should be hey.
Hey, there's spike Albrecht about that five years ago tonight He came off the bench in that championship game first half at 17 against Louisville I put that for for nine I think of my writer Oh for math news when the free-throw line Anita that's a Bugaboo for them more year but spike haven't hit double hip hop-eration What a competitor presented up a Purdue as a graduate transfer at the end for very tightly tethered to this Michigan program high school unable to get it to go Matthews This time we're gonna take any doubt out of it.
I like that Jump bail, I'd say come on.
Let's get involved here We had a couple that drives to the basket in the second half against Loyola Chicago that helped turn things right things more they did twice in the second half Decenzo look at this opposite The second half They have done a lot of business off the offensive glass 11 boards on that in J right liking what his team's doing be mine trying to solve the riddle We have 12 minutes left for the title.
And Villanova has the 15-point advantage Jean That'll fill a few lockers bases million dollars Spellman able to pluck that make sure partner didn't get it booth The floor with it Robinson He's sound that attack Look for Rahman or Matthews, maybe to tee it up go to the rim.
I Slipped look at the hole, but there's so alerts on earth, read it all the way All such multi positional players smooth as bottner short Out goes the Michigan over to Tracy Jim during that timeout John Beilein Urging mo vogner to get more involved They want to get it to him inside and they want him to drive Brunson more also trying to give confidence to their shooters saying shoot the ball with confidence you can do it Let's make a run here Jim Alright raft you made observation a couple times you thought Michigan looked a little petite early in the game I think you have to that first seven or eight minutes.
They going to regenerate read Energized here, but Villanova.
The switching is really big tough.
There you go Five to shoot Simpson draws the contact Nothing for free.
Well, remember the Bakke had earlier where he pinned it against the rim Way that's called Wally Duff big time, huh? And that right there is special right there not FAL leading that greatly for his own right But that was the fourth on Brunson I think he's gonna take a rest now see gillespie up getting ready to go in Simpson with that Unorthodox style at the line trying to make sure his right shoulder gets involved.
Looks like he's just Reaching over and grabbing a ball off a ball rack as Brunson has to go out now at the 1051 mark And replaced by the freshman Gillespie.
Once again, the as you take a look at the foul problems The injury there Gillespie early in the year and his ability to come back.
He's getting ready and certainly as helped this team Xavier Simpson gets them both right now Michigan down 13 with one sent out of the game that you just got to get stops on this end And of course execute, he's smart and solid watched his screen roll Vincenzo's likes to run the point when he's out nice.
Look at this turbo Showing it off How about that? He reached deep into the bag of tricks on that What a great show by vogner, but even better ball handling skills D Vincenzo so elusive To the basket getting to the free-throw line Wow So looking for his first second half points 71% free-throw shooter doesn't add up does it now? No with that stroke to his Physically imposing Tunes that's just the guy that can defy me with speed he can fight with that strength Those gets it 212 gets interesting now it was 18 They don't care what size you are the automatic switch and trunk 20 Corral Matthews Outside on the wing Simpson you're at the line.
They thought he had it from our angles.
Look good short J right parking out a play call here as we approach 10 minutes to go Look at this drive.
They've been with us.
We'll go over the second half and right away.
They just open the middle Nobody there to help nobody home to do some damage put them over each now with 21 on the night Binder really has to get a little more game nice cup on a big guy matches your was That's going to be their spell has been trying to deny vogner at the top rate cut by the big fella We don't want to just batch they want to dig down and scratch and stop Swinging it over to bridges we're gonna lift everybody who won a table pass Matthews was waiting for it steps out and as a fool They hit it went off down but no whistle with a tough pass and all of a sudden knocking on the door Matthews now was six And 11 to 5 stretch did the chins Oh breaks their heart Dagger how about the biggest States the brightest lights? Jess when there was a little momentum Heading in Michigan's direction.
This kid is special.
I think the polls close Dante Force him to use a lot of time as well seven to shoot Matthews jumper And pulled down by Spellman with two hands as he often does he reminds me of Jerry Lucas? Not a lot of guys won't remember that name, but Middletown, Ohio, Ohio State Iowa State for sure two-handed rebound with some power And as a memory like yours Look at this.
Yes Who needs Brunson Wow, he has scored Villanova's last nine points, he's in a different zone Back up dating Luke Hancock had 23 and was mo P for Louisville in 2013 that championship though vacated Soon we still have seven minutes left Jimmy even Iceland's rising.
So good again to the go.
He's hurt after.
Hope took a hard fall Haskell And his fourth foul basket goes and I thought Pascoe had the lane on happy To block it with Simpson and great touch and finish and they both fell hard there and trying to give some life to this Michigan team, but So Pascal joins Brunson on the bench with four fouls Brunson's been down now for about three minutes and Then no reason to put him at risk put him back on the floor.
Maybe a little light pressure here Jim the thing about de vincennes oh, he sort of taken the heart out of the opponent the way he's been shooting the ball at critical times and Foul problem door they go and Matthew's held them That's they all can make plays.
They're all unselfish.
Talk about playing together It's gonna be the fourth by the way on Matthews the first to reach for on the Wolverines Kids on his way to a 30-point night and beyond this it's just amazing.
You never know at this level is gonna step up gotta learn how to shoot free throws Well, it promises to be a thrilling masters masters week is here watch masters live for exclusive coverage of eight men corner, 15 and 16 and featured groups live on CBS sports app CBS sports.
com masters Tom ball tipped around and controlled by pool That's what they work on we've seen that on those missed free-throws slapping the bounce moment just couldn't come up with it Go to the rim somehow Nice drop step big step there.
Gotta go to your rice showing quick hitters But it's been difficult.
Villanova's defense really making it difficult for, Michigan No three-point opportunities hard to get to the basket, but I agree they got to continue to attack They had success in the first half and there's still time left.
We never know what can happen here in a game down the stretch Good to see Rahman stepping up to struggle the other night.
That was a third on both Right here coach of Rahman makes this do you put on some pressure maybe I would explore the floor a little bit You don't wanna you don't want to open them up to the Jay Wright loves to get pressed They don't mind taking that jacket going over the top You got to be careful how you dispense pressure 15 for Rahman? Bottner tops was 16.
They have 31 on the floor to 8 This is where going over so good at just using the clock Be very patient executing And finding that man He wants it something he doesn't want to give it up and again he gets Robinson number three And that's gonna be the seventh team foul on, Michigan Just wall – is it even too strong a Great weapon putting it on the bounce.
They got two elite coaches here the great job to get their team to this position.
So, One-on-one is only part of this night.
That hasn't gone.
Well, he's missed four of his last five free throws But gets the front end Villanova 652 away from a second championship in three years both Finalized in the state of Texas if they finish this one off The patch Enzo now with 29 including Villanova's last 11 points scored Nickel dimer on the drive and that's all they're going to go to why not stop the clock at the defeats for aligning camber – two championships in three seasons, this is since 1975 after all the UCLA dynasties you get took you might remember that grant.
I think I don't know how Mike did it even haven't players Kentucky 96 and 98 to out of three and and where's the Gators Billy Donovan's team? repeat winners By the way, you know, our man going into the Basketball Hall of Fame how about this grants the first Duke basketball player? To go into the Basketball Hall of Fame coach K of course is in but first player Grant Hill, right? I was in disbelief when I when you told me that the other day and that is amazing all the years But you know you think about some of the names here.
I'm busy in September.
I know about you Jay I got plans Yeah family vacation Springfield.
I want to be there Guys are both invited which you mentioned a great duquan thicket of dick growth rate growth both sports Oh Oh and deep in Shinto trying to do too much that time Went behind the back and the Wolverines come up with it need to do something that pull It was a great move to the hole but no control with the shot Today trying to get him to slow down a little bit.
Rich is so much for that.
Is that slow enough? Good coaching That's why that guy's got expensive suits They got a license to drill it And every time we felt like Michigan was getting back 14-point game is like this Villanova team is answer It's been amazing to watch but here got attack get to the basket Rach.
Come on outside No, and it's different Enzo.
This would be a Melker to clock this trip Bitches got a foul on the small change riches with ten in the second half 14 for the game and so good in transition finding the open shooter bridges a Great transition three-point shooter and just answering the bell And I thought let's you said, you know, maybe just back it out.
You gonna clock but no bridges knocks it in That's the problem.
You've got to get back and then get out and cover.
They all can drill that baby on a catch Villanova runs opportunistically, they're always looking to run but when they do they're very efficient like on that last play breeches who won the Dave Gavitt Award is the Big East tournament mo P Gillespie He's trying to hide it has some blood on his jersey tucked it in You know the gadget games The last few through 12 12, right that would be so you know the Big Ten of Big East and those early season matchups It's gone four and four, four, four four.
And for the last three years, right? I think we're standing Gavin vice president here president basketball I See a tournament is dead one of the great names and people with all the basketball and of course Akram endeth Eleni the commissioners got together and his honor That have those games now with its largest lead up to 19 That's off Michigan look at West They all have fire nothing going right from Michigan John Beilein the mastermind but his team just unable to Bring much life right there great hands, Michael MC inside It's all off off with Michigan gon jump it – he's trying to force a baseline a little bit and what's impressive the Villanova they still Compete on the defensive ends up nine with 15 five minutes left They're gonna play 40 minutes 19-point game High-speed Go back outside with it quick draw by bridges Look at this tip to himself didn't get it.
But Spellman we got a run right here.
It's something early get back though The message right a big fella That's good.
Defense – you don't foul you got somebody help and I must have communicated on this particular play horse It went to a tough angle on I think that was the right call but I thought the ball hit the backboard first, but you're right great help here.
Great team defense Villanova Expects nothing less.
Yeah amazing Resilient take hits keep ticking and they're doing all this right now with their best players Salem Brunson on the bench Don't let's be Sharing a mop You can hear him say no And that's what Brunson has taught this team.
All of the guys keep the dribble alive tease the bigs drag them away Create a path for themselves or somebody dives and finishes the deal and that could be it.
He may not play again this particular game For four partner and Brunson still sitting and Again has been out since outside the 10-minute mark That's where the team is all about though collectively They chin and still engaged still On his guys to continue with the effort.
I think you're gonna put it back on the floor It's gonna be you know, he's going long after this graduating in three years He's got to give it warmer a chance to be on the floor and get that ovation coming back out.
That's a great point He's Jay went out of Sudan Smartest guy in the program wanted the Jay Wright including the coach Biggie's scholar athlete of the year.
Yep Buckner still working hard And short with a shot tires bikes.
He really got fatigued you saw that early in the game took him out You were talking about grant with Brunson not only the National Player of the Year that Big East Player of the Year the Big East scholar athlete of the year as this has three more Nothing you can do and they're raining threes Jim They are a heck of a basketball team Simpson That play off the glass for two more You know Jim, I think I told both you and grant Billy Cunningham is a friend of ours He watched them practice before the season.
