Jim Nantz gave Ryan Arcidiacono his tie as a congratulatory gift

On Monday night, Villanova guard Ryan Arcidiacono took home Final Four Most Oustanding Player, and a new necktie.

Nantz apparently gives out his tie to a deserving player each year, but he must do it in secret because no one can recall the last time a player donned a tie after the game.

Here's Arcidiacono after the game, talking about the moment Jim Nantz gave him his tie.

I guess it's a tradition unlike any other.
