Villanova vs Kansas live stream schedule, channels
Villanova (30-7), seeded second in the South Region, finished the season sixth in the nation in the AP poll and fifth in the coaches poll. Now they are aiming for their third national title under Jay Wright and the fourth in school history.
Nova will have to make up for the loss of a player Wright called “probably [Villanova’s] MVP” in Justin Moore. The junior guard tore his Achilles tendon in the final minute of the game in the Wildcats’ 50-44 win over Houston in the regional final.
Without Moore, seniors Collin Gillespie and Jermaine Samuels will have to step up even more than they have in this tournament. Samuels led Nova with 17.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game, while Gillespie is averaging 13 points per game. As a team, the Wildcats will be looking to bounce back from one of their worst shooting performances of the season. They made just 28.8 percent of their shots against Houston, including 5 for 21 from beyond the arch.
Kansas (32-6), the top seed in the Midwest, finished the season ranked third in the nation in AP and Coaches polls. They come into this game after a very impressive win over Miami in the Elite Eight.
The Jayhawks edged the 10-seeded Hurricanes by six at the end of the first half before coming back strong in the second. Kansas shot nearly 60 percent from the floor in the second half en route to a 45-17 run and a 76-50 win. Senior guard Ochai Agbaji scored 12 of his team-leading 18 points in the second half.
These two schools and coaches also have a recent history with each other. Kansas and Villanova have met three times in the past 14 years in the NCAA Tournament, with the winner taking the national title each time. Jay Wright’s Wildcats edge Bill Self’s Jayhawks 2-1 in those three games. Nova’s most recent victory against Kansas came in the 2018 Final Four, when Collin Gillespie and Jermain Samuels were freshmen.
Kansas is currently a 4.5-point favorite against Villanova. The over/under is 134. The match is being played at Caesar’s Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
