The madness will conclude tonight as Villanova and North Carolina will meet in Houston tonight for the NCAA Men's Basketball National Championship.

Shelby Mast from BracketWAG.com and USA Today joined Brad Russell in the Average Sports Show Wednesday to break down the coaching matchup between Jay Wright of Nova and Roy Williams of North Carolina, and talk about the key matchups in the game.

 Mast said Villanova has been able to play real well at the best time.

"After they played the way they played in the first two rounds, I was very confident they could make it to the title game," Mast said.

 As far as the Tar Heels, Shelby said this has been one of Roy's better coaching jobs, given that so many top-level players are buying in and sacrificing their own game for the greater good of the team.

AUDIO Villanova Ready For Hield, OU

The Final Four is set to tip off from Houston this weekend, and Jay Wright's Villanova Wildcats are ready to face a stiff challenge from the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday.

Richard Hoffman, Sports Writer and Producer for PhillyVoice.com joined the Sam Bourquin Show to talk about how the Wildcats will prepare to stop sharpshooting guard Buddy Hield and the OU squad in their half of the bracket.

Hoffman says Villanova will have to guard the perimiter, not just Buddy.

"They (the Sooners) shoot a lot of threes, I think Villanova will give them a better game this time around,' said Hoffman/

Oklahoma won by 20 in their first meeting in December, but the Wildcats will have to put that in the rear view if they want to make it to the National Championship.

He says it's been an interesting ride for them and their fans up to this point and they've been playing solid ball, perhaps the best they've played all year.
