These guys simply could NOT miss.
To say the Wildcats were on fire in the first half would be an understatement. Villanova was historically good shooting the rock from downtown against Kansas.
Just how good were they in the first half?

Some teams dream of making 13 3-pointers in an entire game. But, to do so in just 20 minutes of action? Again, these guys could not miss. Bill Self was seen shaking his head on the bench numerous times.
Jalen Brunson led the team with three trey balls, scoring a team-best 13 points in the first half.

Can the Wildcats keep this up in the second half?
If you're a Kansas fan, you're hoping the answer is no. But for all the fans in the Philly area, you're hoping it continues to rain threes.
