No team in college basketball history has made more three-pointers than the 2017-18 Villanova Wildcats.
The team tweeted the following during its 95-79 victory over the Kansas Jayhawks in Saturday's Final Four:
The Wildcats finished a blistering 18-of-40 from deep, clinching their spot in Monday's national championship game versus Michigan. Junior forward Eric Paschall went 4-of-5 from three on his way to a game-high 24 points.
The Big East representative did much of its damage in the first half, drilling 13 threes as it built a 15-point advantage by intermission. According to ESPN Stats & Info, the 13 threes tied a record for the most made triples in a Final Four game at the time before the Wildcats set the new mark in the second half.
Villanova had seven players with at least 28 made threes during the season, led by the star-studded backcourt of Mikal Bridges (101) and Jalen Brunson (85).
Look for plenty of triples Monday considering Michigan launched 28 threes during its Saturday win over Loyola-Chicago.
