Those honors went to 'Nova sharp-shooting forward Kris Jenkins as his 14 points and two money balls (including the game-winner at the buzzer in regulations) send Jay Wright and the 2K15-16 'Nova Wildcats into the record books with the schools 2nd National Championship.
How did the 'Cats do it as they shoot a sizzling near 60% from the field throughout the tourney with everyone whop touched for Villanova on fire. Tonight versus the 'Heels it was that smothering half-court "D" that gave UNC fits in the 2nd half as the 'Heels only shot 34% in that half after leading 39-34 at the break.
The Tar Heels were led by Senior three-time Academic All-American Marcus Paige from the state of Iowa as he had a game-high 21 points (including the game-tying money ball that knotted up the score 74-74). UNC 1st Team All-American Brice Johnson added 14 points and eight boards for the 'Heels. It just wasn't meant to be for Roy Williams Group as they cruised with double digit victories in every tourney game but this one.
'Nova senior lead guard Ryan Arcidacono led the 'Cats with a team-high 16 points as UNC led with fouls 20-16 as the Zebras (Refs) were not on their game in this one.
Congrats to the Villanova Wildcats and lead man Jay Wright on their 2K15-16 National Championship...
