The Kansas Jayhawks defeated the Villanova Wildcats 81-65 and the UNC beat Duke 81-77 Saturday to prepare the final for the 2022 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

Kansas vs Villanova

The Jayhawks, who entered Saturday’s match against Villanova as the top seed, avoided a repeat of their 2018 semi-final loss to Villanova. The team last won a national championship in 2008.

Kansas scorers David McCormack and Ochai Agbagi led the way in the absence of second-scorer Vilanova and powerful defender Justin Moore, who tore his Achilles in the regional victory over Houston last week.

Duke Vs UNC

The two teams have played each other 257 times in their history, but have never faced an NCAA tournament before.

Famous Blue Devils trainer Mike Krzyzewski was searching for redemption and an elegant conclusion to his legacy.

This was announced by Krzyzewski, the winning coach in the history of first-class men’s basketball will retire at the end of the season.
