You don’t even have to be a basketball fan to appreciate these final couple of minutes from last night’s NCAA Championship where Villanova beat North Carolina with a heart-stopping 3 point shot at literally the last second of the game.
From the New York Times:
With a buzzer-beating 3-pointer by Kris Jenkins, the Villanova men’s basketball team won its first national title in 31 years on Monday night, defeating North Carolina, 77-74, at NRG Stadium in the N.C.A.A. tournament’s championship game.
It was the Wildcats’ first championship since its memorable run as a No. 8 seed in 1985, which culminated with a win over Georgetown as one of the tournament’s greatest upsets.
