The clock struck midnight for Sister Jean and Loyola as Mo Wagner put on an all time performance for Michigan. Wagner is only the third player to score 20+ with 15+ rebounds in a FF game. The others were Bird and Olajuwon so Wagner may have a nice career ahead of him. In sum, Michigan's talent was too much for the Ramblers.
The second game saw a lights out shooting performance, another record setter for threes, as Villanova got out to a 22-4 lead and easily beat Kansas. Anything close to that on Monday and the Wildcats will win again.
Nova will be the first team Michigan plays that was a 5th seed or better. That has never happened to a team before reaching the final game.
