  1. The sheer disrespect to Michigan and Loyola-Chicago defense is blasphemous. Both team defense are far better than Kansas. I would have rather seen Loyola played Nova than Kansas. Kansas looked like a 3 year old chasing after a ball for the first time rolling down a drive. Unfortunately for Kansas, there was no one there to save them. Loyola close out defense was great. Nova chance is Brunson having a huge game blowing pass defenders getting layups. If they play any other way besides that, they will have a tough time against Michigan especially if Michigan is making shots.

  2. Talk about not keeping that same energy…Villanova is loaded now, but all season they were beatable…the Golden State of college basketball…wow…where was all this before the tournament…Duke, Arizona, Kansas, Michigan St, Kentucky etc were sexier…but cool

    #NovaNation…Jahvon Quinerly get ready to dazzle…hopefully they can keep Jay Wright and keep getting these best of both world recruits that stick around for multiple years and still also get considered as NBA prospects.

    I hope Villanova doesn't get 3 happy and change it up and attack the paint heavily the first half and the 2nd half pull out the 3pt barrage just to show people it is not a game…

  3. Max asks about Nova, “ How do you beat these guys?” Answer; You don’t.
    Nova has not lost two in a row in 5 years, their last back to back loses were in 2013! Since 2013 their winning percentage is over 88%. Again, answer; You Don’t.

  4. Jalen Brunson to the Spurs to run Pop’s system sounds like a match made in heaven. I like Dejounte Murray but he isn’t the long term answer at the PG position in my opinion.

  5. As fan of college basketball I am picking the underdog, never liked prep schools they get a separate set of rules. that rich private school in a little section of PA. I really don't think many Pennsylvania's like them that's not trend. The ones I now don't.

  6. No disrespect to the lovely hard working Ladies around the League.. But.. If its not U. Conn… No one cares. Lol terrible.. If we are not talking Wimbledon Tennis.. Then.. what's to talk about. Jus saying

  7. The funny crazy part is that Kansas played well and Villanova still won by 16. When they win their second championship in three years tonight, people will realize that Villanova is the Golden State Warriors of college basketball. Talked about this on my channel today.

  8. Oh boy Jay…. I don't have a photographic memory, but I watched the whole game and I know Spellman didn't hit "the first four 3's for Villanova" not even close lol. Eric Paschall hit the first 3, Mikal Bridges hit the second 3, and at no point did Spellman hit 4 in a row anyway. Jay Williams had a 12 hours to come up with an opening stat and that's the one you bring up multiple times?
