HOUSTON -- The Villanova Wildcats cruised into their first NCAA championship game since 1985 in record fashion.
Josh Hart went for a game-high 23 points with 8 rebounds and 4 assists and six players reached double-figures in scoring as the Big East regular season champion Wildcats destroyed Buddy Hield and Oklahoma, 95-51, before an NRG Stadium crowd of 75,505 -- including including former President George H.W. Bush and Vice President Joe Biden.
It was the largest margin of victory ever in a Final Four game. The game was so lopsided Villanova coach Jay Wright put three walk-ons in for the final minutes.
