Watch: Villanova students on campus celebrate national championship
Villanova won its last national championship 10 years before most current students were born, so fans on campus made up for lost time with their celebration on Monday.
The Wildcats won a thriller over North Carolina with Kris Jenkins's deep three at the buzzer. After the dramatic finish, students took to the streets to celebrate the historic victory.
At least one group of fans started a small fire and there was a heavy police presence but the celebrations were reportedly largely peaceful.
