It all comes down to this. Sixty-two NCAA Tournament games (not counting the four pre-Tournament contests in Dayton) have been played over the past 19 days. The 63rd will decide a champion.
It’s Michigan vs. Villanova live from the Alamodome in San Antonio Monday night — with the winner set to be crowned college basketball’s national champion.
The bracket has broken just right for the Wolverines and frontcourt star Moe Wagner to make a deep Tournament run. After surviving a second round scare against Houston with a miracle 3-pointer at the buzzer, the Big Ten champs took out Texas A&M and Florida State to reach the Final Four, then turned back Cinderella Loyola-Chicago to earn their spot in Monday night’s title game.
Villanova’s road to the championship game has been significantly more challenging. Villanova dominated the East Regional in Boston with victories over West Virginia and Texas Tech. Then, they demolished Kansas on Saturday night. A win on Monday, and the Wildcats will have their second title in three years.
The game is scheduled to start shortly after 9:00 p.m. ET and will air on TBS. Jim Nantz, Bill Raftery, and Grant Hill will call the action. The game can be watched online free with a cable subscription via NCAA March Madness Live. The site is also offering a three-hour free trial. It can also be watched on mobile devices via the March Madness Live app, which can be downloaded via the google Google Play store or Apple’s App store.
