2021-22 Season

First Look: Villanova Wildcats

Michigan is headed to the Sweet Sixteen and will face No. 2 seed Villanova in San Antonio on Thursday night (7:15 ET, TBS). The Wolverines are 4.5 point underdogs against the 28-7 Wildcats, who finished second in the Big East but won the conference tournament.

The Wildcats are ranked 11th nationally and are on track to finish in KenPom’s top-30 for the ninth consecutive season. Their six-man rotation features three fifth-year players, a senior, junior, and one sophomore — most of whom played vital roles on last year’s team.

Jay Wright’s program is one of the most reliable in the country, and here’s our first look at the Wildcats as we enter a week of previews and analysis.
