To close the National Championship game, Villanova guard Kris Jenkins hit a buzzer-beater to win the game. How did Twitter react?
On Monday night, the No. 2 Villanova Wildcats and No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels battled in the National Championship game. These teams had a long road to this game through the NCAA Tournament and it all came down to this one in Houston, TX.
The last minutes of the game saw North Carolina inching back and staying just behind Villanova, who had the lead. Then UNC guard Marcus Paige hit a desperate and ugly three-pointer that magically went into the hoop.
However, with about 4 seconds left, Villanova went down the court with the ball. Guard Kris Jenkins received a pass, shot the ball from long distance and hit the game-winning buzzer-beating shot to win the National Championship for the Wildcats. It was a moment that will go down as one of the biggest of all-time in the college basketball title game.
As expected, Twitter blew up after Jenkins hit the shot.
This shot capped off one of the better National Championship games ever seen. Jenkins has himself his One Shining Moment that will live on for an eternity. Absolutely incredible.
