Things are falling apart for Michigan.

The Wolverines are down 15 to Villanova, as the Wildcats have controlled the action to begin the second half.

To make matters worse, Michigan's top player Moe Wagner is in foul trouble. Wagner has three fouls, all in the second half, with 15 minutes remaining.

He picked up the first one on a questionable illegal screen early in the half, and just got his second and third on one possession.

He was called for an offensive foul, and then was part of a double technical foul with Villanova's Omari Spellman. The tech counts as a personal foul, Wagner's third.

Because he picked up his third foul, Wagner was taken out of the game for Jon Teske. We don't expect him to be out long though.

In the meantime, Villanova is pulling away. The Wildcats lead by 15 and are looking primed to win their second title in three years.
