MICHIGAN: Last season: 26-12, won Big Ten Tournament and reached NCAA Sweet 16.
Who's gone: G Derrick Walton, F D.J. Wilson, G-F Zak Irvin, F Mark Donnal.
Who's back: F Moe Wagner. After considering jump to NBA, Wagner is back at Michigan as team's top returning player; G Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman. Enters senior season with plenty of experience after starting 37 games in 2016-17; G-F Duncan Robinson. Shot 44 percent from 3-point range in first two seasons at Michigan. G Zavier Simpson. Averaged 8.7 minutes a game as freshman last season, backing up Walton.
Who's new: G Jaaron Simmons. Graduate transfer from Ohio averaged 17.2 points last season for one of top teams in Mid-American Conference; G Charles Matthews. Kentucky transfer now eligible after sitting out last season, could give Michigan some athleticism on wing. G Eli Brooks. Averaged 29.7 points as high school senior in 2016-17.
The Skinny: Michigan has a lot to replace, but Simmons and Matthews already have Division I experience, so the transition may not be too bumpy for Beilein's team. Losing Wilson to the NBA was a blow, but Wagner's return means the Wolverines are still a team to watch in the Big Ten. Their early schedule is an intriguing one with trips to North Carolina and Texas and a home game against UCLA.
VILLANOVA: Last season: 32-4, lost in second round of NCAA Tournament.
Who's gone: G Josh Hart, G Kris Jenkins, F Darryl Reynolds
Who's back: G Jalen Brunson, the sensational junior point guard, averaged 14.7 points, shot 54 percent from the field, had 148 assists and flirted with the idea of leaving for the NBA. G Phil Booth led the Wildcats in scoring in the national championship game in 2016. He missed most of last season with an injured left knee. F Omari Spellman, G Donte DiVincenzo and G Mikal Bridges round out a lineup for the Big East favorites.
Who's new: The Wildcats added Collin Gillespie, Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree and Jermaine Samuels to the lineup.
The Skinny: The Wildcats were picked to win their fifth straight regular-season conference title, Brunson was chosen as the conference's preseason player of the year, and Spellman was selected freshman of the year. The 2016 national champions should again be among the small group of programs that can win it all on that first Monday in April.
Villanova vies for 2nd title in 3 years vs. Michigan

No. 1-seeded Villanova will attempt to capture its second national championship in three years when it battles Michigan on Monday night in San Antonio.

The Wildcats (35-4), the top seed in the East, put on a shooting clinic in dispatching Kansas 95-79 in the national semifinal on Saturday night. They hit 18 shots from beyond the 3-point arc to set a Final Four record, breaking the previous mark of 13.

Michigan (33-7), which has already set a single-season record for victories, will play in its seventh national championship game in program history. The Wolverines rallied from a 10-point deficit in the second half to upend NCAA darling Loyola-Chicago 69-57.

Villanova was unexpectedly led by junior Eric Paschall, who shot an incredible 10 of 11 from the field and finished with 24 points. Only UCLA's Bill Walton had a better shooting night in a Final Four matchup, when he was 21 of 22 in 1973.

The balanced Wildcats also received 18 points from Jalen Brunson along with 15 points and 13 rebounds from Omari Spellman.

Villanova has won games in a variety of ways through the NCAA Tournament. Even when 3-pointers weren't dropping in the Elite Eight against Texas Tech (4 of 24), the Wildcats found other ways to win -- like hitting 29 of 35 free throws.

Their defensive effort has been consistent through the entire season.

"Obviously we're very talented offensively," Brunson said. "We have a lot of weapons offensively, but when it comes to us staying together on defense, that's what makes it special and we're going to keep getting better and keep getting better (Sunday) and be ready for Monday."

Spellman, a freshman, is one of the best shooting big men in the country. If shots aren't falling, he'll look for other ways to win.

"Just coming out, ready to compete and defend and rebounding and continue to do what we do," Spellman said. "We don't pride ourselves on shooting the ball well. We pride ourselves on defending and rebounding, and that's our true measure of success in playing Villanova basketball. So we're definitely going to look to come out and do that on Monday."

Villanova won the national championship in 1985 and 2016, with a potential third title sitting one game away. Legendary coach Rollie Massimino guided the '85 team and he was in attendance in '16. He passed away about six months ago.

"You don't even -- you can't say it's a dream come true because you don't even dream about it. You don't dream about getting two out of three years, you don't think about it. I don't," Villanova head coach Jay Wright said. "So it's hard to even comprehend it.

"And not having Coach Mass this year, I personally miss him a great deal. And at times walking out before the game, in the hotel, I can hear when the crowd's going crazy and I know he walked in."

Michigan will play Villanova for the fifth time ever and the second time in the NCAA Tournament. The Wildcats defeated Michigan 59-55 in the second round of the '85 NCAA Tournament.

Michigan will play in its first championship game since 2013, and a victory over Villanova would close its season with 15 consecutive wins.

Moritz Wagner was scintillating against Loyola-Chicago with 24 points and 15 rebounds while shooting 10 of 16. Wagner became only the third player to post at least 20 points and 15 rebounds in a national semifinal game and the first since 1983.

Wagner, a 6-foot-11 junior, was only the third player to score 20-plus points with 15-plus rebounds in a national semifinal game, joining Larry Bird in 1979 and Hakeem Olajuwon in 1983.

"Wow. If you put it like that, that's probably cool," Wagner told reporters. "But to be honest, I kept looking possession by possession. ... And I honestly just tried to do my job."

Michigan's unlikely season will continue after going 19-7 through the first 26 games as it tries to win its second career national championship.

"This team's had no attention at all," Michigan head coach John Beilein said. "Until we went up to beat Michigan State we weren't nationally ranked. Now we're playing on Monday night."
