If you watched the championship game between Villanova and North Carolina, you couldn’t ask for a better ending to this year’s crazy, unpredictable NCAA tournament. In the final seconds, North Carolina shoots a 3 pointer to tie the game 74-74. Villanova inbounds to arch with 4.7 seconds left on the clock, dribbles down the court, and dishes to Jenkins with 1.4 seconds left. Jenkins puts up a 3 pointer, and as time expires, swishes the game winning shot. A game ending that every kid plays out in their driveway growing up.
Did I see Villanova winning it all? No, I had them going to the final game, but had Michigan State winning it all. Unfortunately my bracket was hurt badly in the earlier rounds - thank you again, Michigan State, for losing so early. But that is what makes the NCAA tournament so maddening, so fun, and so exciting. It didn’t really matter to me who won. I was pulling for Villanova, since I picked them to go to the final game, but in the end I just wanted a good game to watch. I definitely got that, and then some.
Who did you think would win it all?
