A nice reader sends us this amazing shot of Villanova forward Kris Jenkins’s game-winning buzzer-beater from the end of the NCAA championship game. We’ve all seen this shot from a dozen or so angles, but I don’t think this one has been out there yet.
Every now and then, you see some shit so crazy that you momentarily forget where you are and what you’re supposed to be doing. We’ve all been this security guard before:
It’s been a long while since the Main Line had a championship to celebrate, but Villanova students more than made up for it. The party spilled out of the Pavilion and onto the streets and ran through the early morning, and saw numerous injuries and arrests, including two for, um, assaulting a police horse.
Past results do not guarantee future performance, the SEC forces funds to tell investors. It’s good advice. But in a final two games in which Villanova shot an unreal 63-of-97 from the field, if it came down to one shot—if it came down to Kris Jenkins with an open look—the Wildcats had to feel pretty good about a…
For some reason, fans decide to film their reactions and the reactions of those around them in potentially thrilling and decisive sports moments. This is maybe not the best way to be a fan, but it does provide us with a great treasure trove of fans ripping their jerseys off and getting consoled by their dogs. That …
Villanova closed out the college basketball season with one of the most memorable finishes in history when Kris Jenkins hit a buzzer-beating three-pointer to down North Carolina. Here’s that legendary shot as called by announcers around the world:
This year’s NCAA Tournament opened with as crazy of an opening weekend as you’ll ever see, before settling into a boring procession of blowouts, which abruptly ended tonight, when Villanova beat North Carolina in a genuinely bonkers National Championship game.

Wrestlemania is tomorrow in Dallas, but it was elsewhere in Texas that saw the slobberknockers tonight as Villanova smoked Oklahoma in the first Final Four semifinal. Here are some highlights of the game, as called by “J.R.” Jim Ross’s commentary in Wrestlemanias of the past.
It's been a whirlwind weekend for crying Villanova piccolo player Roxanne Chalifoux, but her international stardom led to a few perks tonight as the emotion-stricken Pittsburgh-area native appeared on The Tonight Show—taking home some swag (including Taylor Swift tickets, which almost made her cry again) and sitting…
We couldn't let the saddest piccolo player just go with a GIF, so here, by request, is a super-slow-mo rendition set to the proper musical backing.
It almost doesn't matter that St. John's got bodied by Villanova, 105-68, as the Wildcats clinched the Big East regular season title. Not when a photographer so perfectly captured Johnnies sophomore guard Rysheed Jordan doing this to Nova's Dylan Ennis:
Tonight's battle between ranked teams in Brooklyn went Villanova's way after Michigan's potential game-winning dunk was rejected by the Wildcats' JayVaughn Pinkston.
In a crazy finish, Villanova, the 1 seed in the Big East Tournament and no. 3 in the nation, was knocked off by Seton Hall on a last second shot by Sterling Gibbs. This is why we love March.
An elderly basketball coach sits at a desk in his home study. Framed pieces of netting adorn the walls and 60 Minutes is on the television as he reads scouting reports. His attention turns to the computer. An email from Jay Wright.
Take a look at the star players on each of the college basketball teams ranked in the top five this week, and you'll notice a common pairing: Gonzaga's Kelly Olynyk has Elias Harris. Indiana's Victor Oladipo has Cody Zeller. Kansas's Ben McLemore has Jeff Withey. Duke's Seth Curry has Mason Plumlee (and now Ryan…
Last night in Newark, Villanova blew a
three four-point lead with 16.3 seconds left and lost to Seton Hall by one. The defeat dropped the Wildcats to 18-11 overall, 9-7 in the Big East. It also solidified their status as the country's most baffling college basketball team.
A Ryan Arcidiacono three-pointer with seconds remaining in regulation forced overtime in Philadelphia, an opportunity of which the Villanova Wildcats took advantage in shocking Syracuse with a 75-71 victory.
