Semifinal 2 RECAP

Impact player

Eric Paschall, Villanova

The 6-9 transfer from Fordham — Villanova’s fifth-leading scorer this season — scored 24 points, going 10-for-11 from the floor, including 4-for-5 from long range. He also had three rebounds and three assists.


22-4 Villanova’s lead right out of the gate. Kansas never cut the deficit to single digits the rest of the way.

66 Three-pointers for Villanova in the tournament, breaking the record of 61 held by VCU in 2011, when the Rams needed six games to make that many.

16 Kansas needed a late basket to lose by 16 and avoid matching its worst margin of defeat in an NCAA tournament game. The 1940 Jayhawks lost to Indiana 60-42 in the championship game.
