Kansas got absolutely rolled in its first Final Four since 2012 as Villanova took it to the Jayhawks and took a 95-79 victory.
The game actually started out pretty well; KU won the opening tip, and Udoka Azubuike scored in the post to give KU a 2-0 lead. But Villanova scored the next 11 points, opening up an 11-2 lead. That lead quickly swelled to 22-4 before Bill Self called his second timeout of the half at the 13:03 mark.
Kansas switched to a zone defense and scrapped back into it – kinda – getting to with 12 at 25-13 on a Lagerald Vick layup with 10:04 to go until halftime. Villanova didn’t cool off much, and maintained a 15-ish point lead for the rest of the half before going into halftime with a 47-32 lead.
Villanova tied the Final Four record for made threes in a game in the first half with 13. The Wildcats took 78.
