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.
Then, Kris Jenkins hit a shot that will be talked about for decades to come. Congratulations to Villanova, your 2016 NCAA Division 1 National Champions.
