There are a lot of talented guards in this game, but Johnson is the force in the paint at 6-9, 228 pounds. Nobody has had an answer for him in this tournament, as he has had nearly a double-double in his last four games, including 20 points and 10 boards against Indiana. Villanova can shoot, but they can’t match what the Heels have in the frontcourt and that should be the difference in the game, with Johnson leading the way.
