"There has never been a national championship game quite like the one that took place in Houston on Monday night. There have been other remarkable endings — Lorenzo Charles’s buzzer-beating dunk in 1983 instantly comes to mind — but nothing that compares to the climax of Villanova’s 77-74 victory over North Carolina. ... Why? Because both teams made shots that will be remembered forever in the final five seconds. If Carolina had gone on to win the game in overtime, Marcus Paige’s off-balance, double-pump three-point shot with 4.7 seconds left would have been remembered [... and fallen into a play-it-again-and-again category along with Michael Jordan’s jumper in 1982 and Keith Smart’s off-balance baseline jump shot in 1987. It would have been historic. Except that Kris Jenkins topped it, swishing his winning three-pointer with less than a second left setting off the wildest postgame scene since North Carolina State Coach Jim Valvano’s famous run to nowhere after Charles’s game-winner in Albuquerque 33 years ago" ... - John Feinstein |Washington Post -
