BALA CYNWYD, Pa. (KYW Newsradio) - The Villanova Wildcats look to make history once again Monday night as they face Michigan in the NCAA National Title game.

Many students and alumni who can't make it out to San Antonio for the big game will be showing their support from the Main Line.

That includes alum Layla, who got to see 2016 championship in person.

"It's nice to experience being around campus, in the area, and kind of getting the best of both worlds and experiencing both," she says.

Margret was also in Houston in 2016 for the big game, and can't believe they're returning so soon.

"I'm really proud," she says. "I think you get more committed and excited about Villanova the further out you are as an alum."

She remembers when all the doubters used to appear each time the Wildcats made the tournament. 

"Now I think we're really proving ourselves as an established basketball team," she adds. "I think it proves we're a real basketball school."

And one championship just isn't enough for recent grad Peter.

"I would love to win a second one (in three season)," he says. "They deserve it. (Jalen) Brunson is the man, he really deserves a second one. Let's go, I'm ready for another one."

Each of them, along with every member of Nova Nation who spoke with KYW Newsradio, is predicting Villanova does it again.
