Michigan (19-14) vs Villanova (28-7)

The Michigan Wolverines face off against the Villanova Wildcats for. 7:30 tip in the sweet 16. Michigan just beat a solid Tennessee team to get here, but the tough road is just getting started! Michigan is a decent shooting team from the floor, averaging 47.1% (38). They are also a good rebounding team on both ends of the floor! Michigan is 6-4 in their last 10 games, but do they have what it takes to take down one of the best teams from the Big East?

The Villanova Wildcats have won 7 straight and 9 of their last 10 games. Villanova is a great defensive team and ranks in the mid 30s - 98th in every defensive category. They are 36th in points allowed per game (63.6), 54th in defensive fg% (41), and 38th in rebounds. On the offensive side, they average 73.8 ppg and are the best free throw shooting team in the country. This will be key down the stretch!

  • Michigan is 1-7 ats in their last 8 games following an ats win
  • Michigan is 1-5 ats in their last 6 games following a win
  • Villanova is 2-1 all time vs Michigan
  • Villanova is 2-1 ats vs Michigan
  • Villanova is 17-4 ats in their last 21 games as a favorite in the tournament

Final Thought

I’m honestly surprised Michigan made it this far. I felt the Colorado game was a coin flip and they would definitely lose against Tennessee. I think Michigan’s luck runs out vs Villanova. Villanova has experienced guard play and a proven coach on their side. I think they are more well rounded and will lock down Michigan.
