Last night’s national title game made up for the overall terrible tournament. In what was hands-down the most exciting basketball game during March Madness, Marcus Paige looked like he hit a miracle three-pointer to send the game into overtime after the Tar Heels came back from a 10-point deficit in the closing minutes. That was until this happened…
The shot sent fans all around the country into a frenzy. I could hear the bar down the street going nuts. I was going nuts. Twitter was going nuts. Everyone was going nuts, especially the fans of Villanova.
The reaction at The Pavilion, the home arena for the Wildcats, was insane.

But the greatest scene was at a local campus bar.

Just crazy. I can only imagine how many couches were burned, riots incited, and girls impregnated last night. Congrats to the Wildcats on their second title. Just make sure to stop in Dallas on your way back to play SMU for that trophy..
