Villanova officially opens its renovated building with a clunker for the ages

Bill Finneran, who donated enough to his beloved alma mater that Villanova's renovated and sparkling Pavilion is now named for him, had to improvise his halftime remarks at Wednesday's official opening night for the arena.

How many defenses will throw all their efforts at Phil Booth and Eric Paschall to see if that shuts Villanova down?

"I was just hoping we wouldn't have to give the trophy back,'' a Villanova staffer said after this rematch of the 2018 NCAA title game.

You can't blame the freshmen for those five veteran starters putting up 14 turnovers to just 8 field goals.

Charles Fox The Michigan bench celebrates in the final minutes of their 73-46 victory over Villanova on Nov. 14, 2018 at Finneran Pavilion.

Walking past all the photos of all the greats back out to Ithan Avenue, the departing crowd knew they'd seen a little history of their own.
