The Villanova Wildcats are national champions! Jay Wright's team took down North Carolina in absolutely crazy finish in the biggest men's college basketball game of the year. Just when it looked like the Tarheels were going to force overtime by hitting an off-balance three with 4.7 seconds remaining, the Wildcats answered back with a three of their own as time expired. Insanity!
Big congrats are in store for our friends over at VU Hoops. Go check them out!
As you can imagine, former Eagles running back and Nova alumnus Brian Westbrook was thrilled with the win.
