Villanova wins NCAA title on Kris Jenkins's buzzer-beating three
Tuesday April 5th, 2016

As Villanova drove down the floor on its final possession of Monday’s championship game, plenty of fans had their phones ready to record Kris Jenkins’s stunning game-winning shot. 

Jenkins drilled a deep three to give the Wildcats a 77–74 win over North Carolina. It is their first national championship since upsetting Georgetown in 1985.

As amazing as Jenkins’s shot looked on television, it’s even more stunning to view it as the fans in the stands saw it.
