Jay Wright Doesn't Sound Like A Coach Who'd Leave For The NBA

The Wildcats' recipe for success: Don't be shy about shooting the basketball, especially from deep. This story ended in the second round as Cinderella stories don't last very long and this one didn't either as a drained UMBC crapped out in the very next game against Kansas State. But for me, this is why I coach: To be in that locker room right now with these kids and to have this opportunity to tell them, 'This is life'. The Wolverines had a 19-14 lead in the first quarter but it did not take long for Villanova to find their magic and assert themselves on MI.

"Buddy Hield Donte was a special person, and someone who might've came out tonight", Jalen Brunson, the Wildcats' star who ran into foul trouble and had only nine points against MI, told the Times.

Moritz Wagner scored 9 of Michigan's first 11 points, as the Wolverines found easy buckets in the early minutes. The rest of the team was 7 of 21. "I still like looking up to them. I do". Then, when we won the title and I thought alright, i'm happy and now I just want to make sure the guys graduate and the team stays competitive.

That is because of Wright, who has amassed the most wins ever over a four-year span (136), now has more national championships than John Calipari, Jim Boeheim, Tom Izzo and Bill Self, and as many as Smith and Rick Pitino.

DiVincenzo is a sneaky good athlete who shoots the three-ball at a 39.5 percent clip which would be good enough to lead most teams. He nearly certainly would have started for any of those teams, but he chose to attend Villanova and came off the bench for all but 10 games this past season. Senior guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman had 23 points.

"It just shows how much depth we have, and that we don't care who gets the credit", Brunson said. They make you forget you're good at this sport, too. Everybody talks about their offense. I think we're so similar, that's the reason why.

Only two days shy of the second anniversary of the title they won about 200 miles away in Houston when Kris Jenkins made a buzzer-beating 3-pointer against North Carolina, they were cutting down the nets again. And that was going to be important tonight.

"After those 15 minutes, they really were just a better team than us", Beilein said.

Michigan's Charles Matthews reacts on the bench late in the second half against Villanova during the Final Four national championship game at the Alamodome on Monday in San Antonio. In 2013, they lost to Louisville, whose title since has been vacated because of a sex scandal that surrounded the Cardinals men's basketball program.

Everybody loves a Cinderella story- The Cinderella story has defined and made March Madness what it is, so what is a Cinderella story?

For the first time in men's tournament history, a 16 seed beat a No. 1, with UMBC stunning Virginia. Loyola was a team that ran through 4 supposed stronger teams and advanced to the Final Four.
