The Villanova Wildcats took on the North Carolina Tar Heels here in Houston, Texas on April 4. The Tar Heels came in to the tournament as one of the number one seeds and the Wildcats came in as the number two seed.

With recovered Marcus Paige, the point guard for the Tar Heels, the Wildcats had to play tight on the three-point line. After head coach Jay Wright won the Coach of the Year, the Wildcats came out in the game feeling pretty confident.

The Tar Heels and the Wildcats are not division rivals so they’ve never played each other or experienced any type of play technique against one another. The game started off ice cold, and nobody could get anything to go until late in the first quarter. The game at halftime had a score of 34-39 with the Tar Heels in the lead.

It later came down to 4.6 seconds left on the clock after a tying three pointer by Marcus Paige. The Wildcats had the ball, and with 1.3 seconds left, Kris Jenkins, a Guard for Villanova made the game, winning three. This is the third NCAA Championship won by a buzzer beater in NCAA history.
