All of March Madness has come to this: the championship game.
The Wolverines felled this year's Cinderella team, Loyola-Chicago, to get here. They are hungry, having last won the trophy in 1989 under coach Steve Fisher.
The Wildcats took down Kansas and have players on this season's team that won it just two years ago.
To win it for the second time in three years, 'Nova, who is the top-ranked team in adjusted offensive efficiency on KenPom.com, will have to find a way to score the ball on Michigan, the third-ranked team in defensive efficiency.
To see how it all plays out, tune in to TBS. In addition to the traditional broadcast, there will be two focused offerings. TNT will have a special TeamCast for Michigan fans and truTV will have a special TeamCast for Villanova fans.
For those that prefer online viewing, stream the game on March Madness Live.
The game will tip off at 9:20 p.m. ET.

Players to watch
For Michigan, the player that makes them go is Moe Wagner.
The 6'11 German big man single-handedly kept the Wolverines in the game against Loyola-Chicago and finished with 24 points and 15 rebounds.
Michigan was down for most of the game, but it was Wagner's three ball to tie it at 47 all with seven minutes left that was the game-changer. After that, the Wolverines went on to a 68-57 win to end the Ramblers' historic tourney run.
Wagner has been a matchup nightmare for every team he's faced because his is a big body that can post up, pick and pop and drain it from deep.
Popular opinion has 'Nova winning it all, but if Wagner is playing up to his ability, he could easily play spoiler.
Everyone knows about potential NBA Draft lottery pick Mikal Bridges and what he means to the Wildcats, but it's Brunson, the Naismith Men's College Player of the Year, who is 'Nova's difference-maker.
In the semifinal against Kansas, Brunson played masterfully, pouring in 18 points and dishing out six assists against fellow first-team AP All-American Devonte' Graham on the way to an overwhelming 95-79 win over the Jayhawks.
Brunson's poised leadership, combined with his impressive efficiency should worry Michigan fans.
He's shooting 52.7 percent from the floor and 41.3 percent from behind the arc while averaging 19.2 points per game.
Surrounded by shooters, Brunson is sure to find ways to thwart the Wolverines top-ranked defense to bring the chip back to Wildcat country.
This is Villanova's year. They spent eight weeks at the No. 1 spot in the AP Top 25 for a reason. They've run through the tournament with a potent offense and will continue that play on Monday against Michigan.
