The game was intense, with both teams giving it their all. The crowd was on their feet the entire time. In the end, the Villanova Wildcats won by a score of 79-63. This was an impressive victory, and the team showed tremendous heart.
Who played well
While both teams had some great players, there were a few that stood out.
For Kansas, Devonte’ Graham had a great game. He was able to penetrate the Villanova defense and get to the basket. He also hit some big shots when Kansas needed them.
For Villanova, Donte DiVincenzo played well. He was able to hit some tough shots and was a big reason why Villanova was able to come back and win the game.
Who didn’t play well
There were a few players who didn’t have a great game for Villanova. Eric Paschall had a tough time scoring, shooting just 3-for-10 from the field. Phil Booth also struggled, going 2-for-9 from the field. Lastly, Jalen Brunson couldn’t get anything going offensively, shooting just 1-for-8 from the field.
Who made the better coaching decisions
In the final minutes of the game, both coaches made a number of key decisions that ultimately decided the outcome.
For Villanova, Coach Wright made the decision to switch to a zone defense, which ultimately proved to be successful in slowing down Kansas’ offense. He also made the decision to put his best player, Mikal Bridges, on the bench for much of the second half. This decision paid off as Bridges was able to come into the game in the clutch and hit some key shots.
For Kansas, Coach Self made the decision to foul Nova’s Donte DiVincenzo with just over 2 seconds left in regulation. This allowed Kansas to extend the game and ultimately win in overtime.
Who made the worse coaching decisions
The game was close at halftime, with Villanova leading by just four points, but in the second half, the Wildcats stretched their lead to 12 points.
Then, with less than six minutes left in the game, Jayhawks coach Bill Self made a series of coaching decisions that will be questioned for years to come.
First, he took star guard Devonte’ Graham out of the game. Graham had been one of the few players who was having any success against Villanova’s stifling defense, and he had just hit a three-pointer to cut Villanova’s lead to nine points.
Self then decided not to call a timeout after Villanova scored on its next possession, which gave the Wildcats a chance to extend their lead to 11 points.
Finally, with his team down by 10 points and only two minutes left in the game, Self elected to foul Villanova’s Donte DiVincenzo, who was not a good free throw shooter. DiVincenzo proceeded to make both free throws, effectively ending any chance Kansas had of coming back.
In retrospect, it is easy to say that Self made some poor coaching decisions in the final minutes of the game. However, it is important to remember that he is one of the most successful coaches in college basketball history and has won multiple national championships. It is possible that he knows something about coaching that we do not.
Last night, Villanova beat Kansas in the NCAA basketball championship game. The game was close, but Villanova pulled ahead in the last few minutes and won by a score of 79-62. The fans were wild, cheering and chanting for their team. It was a great game and a great win for Villanova.
Who had the better fans
No matter who you talk to, it’s pretty obvious that college basketball fans are some of the most passionate fans in all of sports. From the student sections to the alumni, people take their college basketball seriously. But when it comes to which fan base is the best, there is always debate.
There are many factors that go into determining which fan base is the best. Some say it’s all about attendance, while others believe it’s about how vocal and passionate the fans are. And then there are those who think it has more to do with how well the team is doing.
So, who had the better fans at the Villanova-Kansas game? It’s hard to say. Both fan bases were clearly passionate and vocal about their team. And both teams have a strong tradition of winning, so there is definitely some pride on the line. In the end, it’s up to each individual to decide who they think had the better fans.
Who had the worse fans
There is no question that both Villanova and Kansas have great fans, but who had the worse fans at the game?
Some people say that Kansas fans were worse because they were so rowdy and disruptive. Others say that Villanova fans were worse because they were soquiet and unsupportive.
So, who do you think had the worse fans at the game?
It was a close game, but the refs definitely gave it to Kansas. There were some really bad calls, and it was obvious that they were biased. The fans were really upset, and it was a really disappointing end to the game.
Who made the better calls
The officials in the Villanova-Kansas game made some controversial calls that led to the Jayhawks’ defeat. Some people believe that the refs made the correct calls and that Kansas simply lost the game fair and square. Others believe that the refs were biased against Kansas and cost them the victory.
So, who do you think made the better calls: the refs or Kansas?
Who made the worse calls
The refs made some terrible calls in the Villanova-Kansas game last night, and it’s clear that they cost Kansas the win. Here’s a look at some of the worst calls of the game:
1. The out-of-bounds call on Josh Jackson’s layup attempt with less than 10 seconds left in the game. This call was clearly incorrect, as replays showed that Jackson’s feet were clearly on the line when he went up for the shot. This call gave Villanova the ball back with a chance to tie or win the game.
2. The no-call on Kris Jenkins’ apparent travel before his game-winning three-pointer. Replays showed that Jenkins took more than two steps without dribbling before he made the shot, which should have been called a travel. This no-call allowed Villanova to escape with a victory.
3. The offensive foul call on Frank Mason III with less than 30 seconds left in the game. This was a close call, but replays showed that Mason did not extend his arm into Brunson while trying to make a steal. This call gave Villanova another chance to score, which they did on the ensuing possession.
These calls were all terrible and cost Kansas the game. The refs need to be held accountable for their mistakes.
