Villanova brings remarkable consistency to Final Four

Final Four: No. 1 Kansas Jayhawks (31-7) vs. I think they'll manage to pull this one out on their way to a national championship loss. I can throw them away or keep one as a memory, but they won't make it longer than that. In the NCAA Tournament second round in Wichita, freshman Jordan Poole hit an off-balance three-point shot to stun No. 6 seed Houston.

If you're Michigan, Kansas and Villanova, the other Final Four teams this year, you're not only used to what surrounds the Final Four, you expect to experience it. The 2011 Final Four game between VCU and Butler drew a 8.3 rating and 14.2 million viewers on CBS, 2.5 million fewer viewers than the Connecticut-Kentucky game that followed it. George Mason's run to the Final Four in 2006 did not provide much in the way of a ratings bump, either: It drew a 9.1 rating and 14.5 million viewers, down from the comparable game in 2005 between IL and Louisville. Though the Jayhawks have played great at times, they have also struggled at times.

KU has been eliminated from the NCAA Tournament shy of the Final Four since 2012. The Bulldogs have an all-star cast supporting McCowan returning from last year's team in Morgan William, who spoiled UConn's title hopes and a 111-win streak last year with a game-winning shot and Victoria Vivians, who has expanded her play in the post and out, becoming a go-to player for her team after moving to the forward position. I thought we did a really good job of letting guys enjoy it.

"Kansas is different from the other two teams we have played so we have to be ready to adjust when we get in the game on Saturday". Loyola's most successful season under Smith was the 2016-17 season, in which the Greyhounds went 16-17 and finished tied for sixth in the Patriot League with an 8-10 league record. With per game averages of 19.2 points on 51.7 percent shooting and 4.6 assists, Brunson is the Wildcats' top offensive threat. The $25 collectible - which will be delivered to customers in June - uses a variety of images to show the team chaplain smiling as she holds a basketball with two hands. Equally as surprising was the 71-59 beating they handed Texas Tech in the Elite Eight round.

"I decided to make my own scouting report because I and you don't want to lose again and Duke has a lot of weaknesses". "You can't dwell at all on not making shots". The defensive effort in the third quarter was as good as we have seen in the tournament, with the Irish outscoring the Ducks 21-9. With the strength both teams have on offense - especially on the perimeter - the scoreboard will get a workout.

"We want to win the game, but is winning the game more important than to make sure there's not a little distraction for Doke?"

Kansas players, Lagerald Vick and Malik Newman and Villanova center, Phil Booth. He poured out 32 points to help Kansas beat Duke in the Elite Eight - including 13 points in overtime.

VCU reached the Final Four in 2011.

"People don't realize how hard it is to get here", he said. But I do think it enhances it. There is a reason the experts are picking Villanova, they're looking at the box score.

It's Notre Dame's first trip to the national semifinals since 2015.
