SAN ANTONIO — The adage that college basketball games in March and April hinge on guard play in this young 21st century will find another of its pinnacles Saturday evening in the second game, when Villanova and Kansas each send out consensus all-American point guards who combined for 7,746 college minutes, 223 starts, 2,385 field goal attempts (46 percent made), 1,152 three-point shots (40.3 percent made) and, as important as all of it, 1,053 assists.

If it comes to free throws, as it can, Jalen Brunson and Devonte’ Graham have taken 860 of those. They have made 692.
