Villanova shoots way NCAA Championship

If the Texas patriots at the Alamo had shot as sure as the Villanova Wildcats did in the Alamo Dome this weekend the results of that battle might have been different.

The Wildcats had few misses in disposing of Michigan in the finals and Kansas in the semi-finals of the NCAA Men’s Bas- ketball Championship.

Donte DiVincanzo came off the bench and had a 31-point night to lead Villanova to the 79- 62 win over the Wolver- ines Monday night after a string of sharpshooters had led the Wildcats to a 95-79 win over the Jay- hawks Saturday in their final sweep of the tourna- ment that gave Nova their second champi- onship in three years.

I, like many fans, was pulling for Loyola of Chicago to win the event as a sentimental pick.

But Moe Wagner and Michigan put an end to that thought Saturday with a 69-57 win over the Ramblers. Wagner scored 24 in that game and pretty much dominated inside.

I picked Loyola and as usual missed picking the winner but it was a win for me as I attended Sat- urday nights semi-finals game and thoroughly en- joyed my visit to San An- tonio as I always have.

San Antonio is a nice, friendly city with a lot of attractions including of course the Alamo and the Riverwalk area.
