Wow. Wow. Wow.

Villanova beat North Carolina on a buzzer beater to claim the national championship (and send Twitter into a frenzy). Among the highlights: The reaction by these Villanova students made me really miss college ... Charles Barkley must've had money on the Wildcats ... The team-specific championship game broadcasts had people really confused ... Jim Nantz gave his tie to Ryan Arcidiacono as a congratulatory gift​. He can probably think of some creative ways to use it ... Michael Jordan's reaction to the loss was fairly subdued (but that didn't stop the crying Jordan memes) ... Hubert Davis, however, was devastated ... Kris Jenkins' game-winning shot, as broadcast by the home announcers. ... Gallery: SI's best photos from the game.

MLB Hair MVP

It's still early but Josh Donaldson's braids and rat tail are special.


MLB Cleat MVP

I'm not a big shoe guy but Gio Gonzalez's cleats are amazing.
