The Final Shot
There may have never been an ending to a championship game as exciting as what we just witnessed between Villanova and North Carolina in the 2016 finale to the NCAA Tournament. The Tar Heels stormed back from 10 down with just 5 minutes to go to tie the game with just a few ticks left on a BONKERS double clutch three by Marcus Paige.
Villanova inbounded with 4.7 seconds on the clock and Ryan Arcidiacono dribbled up the floor, handing it off to Kris Jenkins at the last moment for a shot at immortality. Jenkins’ deep three pointer will be forever etched in tournament lore as Villanova won an absolute classic by a final score of 77-74.
