Villanova hardly broke a sweat en route to its second national title in three seasons, defeating each NCAA Tournament foe by no fewer than 12 points. Loaded with talent at every position, the Wildcats were represented as well as any program in Friday night's announcement of the 2017-18 awards.

Villanova took home two national awards, led by its point guard, Jalen Brunson, who won the John R. Wooden Award for men's Player of the Year. Teammate Mikal Bridges also took home hardware after earning the Julius Erving Award for small forward of the year.

South Carolina's A'ja Wilson took home the women's John R. Wooden Award. Wilson finished the season as the SEC leader in scoring at 22.9 points per game.
