LeBron James made his thoughts on college basketball known earlier this year, but James' disappointment with the rampant corruption didn't stop him from watching Monday night's national championship game between Villanova and MI.
His season cut short because of a knee injury, he was healthy enough to run the scout squad for Villanova during its first title run. While other top-seeded favorites were bounced early and often by underdogs, the Cats consistently tormented quality opponents such as West Virginia and Texas Tech. It should be apparent now that it's risky to declare any major program immune to impropriety, but you can say safely that Jay Wright and John Beilein are coaches that aspire to do everything the right way.
He found his way to the line more in the second half although he hit back-to-back threes in the middle of the half to give the Wildcats their biggest lead at that point at 62-44. Their progress could be crucial in helping the Wolverines replace whoever they end up losing. "He just keeps on looking at me with disgust".
Villanova became the first team since the 2005 Tar Heels to lead the nation in scoring and win the National Championship. They can beat you with an explosive offense and they can beat you with a suffocating defense. With six players who shot at least.385 from 3-point range, with five who made at least 55 3-pointers - including the player who effectively was their center, Spellman - the Wildcats redefined greatness for the modern era. Of course MI deserved to be in the national championship game. This was the team's first loss since February 6, but Nova was also their first true test in a tournament that has presented them with favorable matchups. It's never a bad idea to save your best basketball for the national title game.

Jokes aside, the veteran forward is happy for his school and believes his former college coach, Jay Wright, deserves to be mentioned among the likes of elite college coaches like Mike Krzyzewski and Jim Boeheim. Unfortunately, the Wildcats couldn't miss out of the gates while the Jayhawks couldn't buy a bucket. After scoring 7 consecutive points, MI led 9-4. They might have been a genuinely great team, not just a champion. However, when Villanova started cutting off driving lanes and forcing the Wolverines to settle for jumpers, the game changed. "It's just the type of person that we are".
This was not one of those nights.
The fact that it hasn't even officially been 24 hours since the Wildcats cut down the nets in San Antonio, and Wright has already been linked to numerous teams clearly in need of a change at head coach in the National Basketball Association.
