Villanova’s Kris Jenkins Hits a Three at the Buzzer, Gives Wildcats National Championship Win

For the last two years, Villanova has been notorious for being ranked relatively high, and being ousted relatively early in the Division 1 NCAA tournament.

They just redeemed themselves in a major way.

Their road to tonight’s National Championship game in Houston was marked by a signature blowout victory over the Oklahoma Sooners, but the Villanova Wildcats weren’t done just yet. Up against the top-seeded UNC Tar Heels, Villanova lost the lead in the final seconds thanks to an absurd three-pointer from Marcus Paige.
