While Villanova is just two years removed from its last national championship in men's basketball, the fans are going just as hard for the 2018 title.

The Wildcats earned a 79-62 win over Michigan in Monday's final, bringing home the second championship in a three-year period.

Although the victory came in San Antonio, fans back on Villanova's campus in Philadelphia were ready to celebrate in the streets.

Rob Tornoe of Philly.com reported there will once again be a parade in downtown Philadelphia, although details have not yet been released. Still, the fans better pace themselves with more festivities on the way.
