Men’s college basketball has come to an end.
In a game that might be more remembered for questionable ref calls than an excellent display of basketball, Kris Jenkins put this game away with a thrilling game winning three-pointer.
Marcus Paige hit a big three with a little over a minute left to cut Villanova’s lead down to three. After some stifling defense, Brice Johnson hit a tough lay-up to bring the lead down to one. UNC shot well from the three-point line, at one point shooting 8 of 12 from deep. Marcus Paige led the way for UNC scoring with 21 points.
Phil Booth had a career day off the bench after scoring 20 points to lead all scorers for Villanova. He also knocked down two clutch free throws with thirty-five seconds left on the clock. Phil had help from his teammate, Ryan Arcidiacono, who dropped an additional 16 points for the Wildcats. Ryan also had the game winning assist to Kris Jenkins.
Marcus Paige hit a circus shot with four seconds left, that came after a double pump and a missed assignment from his defender. It would all be for naught though, as Kris Jenkins followed Arcidiacono down the court and knocked down the game winning three-pointer that might have sent the entire state of North Carolina into a state of depression. Unless of course, you’re a Duke fan.
