Monday's National Championship Game will go down as the best in history.

The Oklahoma Sooners were torn apart by the Villanova Wildcats on Saturday night in the first game of the 2016 Final Four. That game did not go as I thought it would, but that’s how March Madness goes. The Wildcats dominated, shooting 71%, and won by a landslide of 44 points. They also set a record for margin of victory in a Final Four semifinal game. Villanova guard Josh Hart had an amazing game with 23 points, shooting 10 of 12 from the field.

In the beginning of the game both teams were trading baskets back and forth, but that did not last long. I was thinking that it was going to be a great game, but it turned out to be a blowout. The Sooners just did not have enough energy to compete with the Wildcats’ smothering defense. The Oklahoma players have nothing to be terribly upset about; they had a great season and made it in the Final Four.


The North Carolina Tar Heels squeezed the life out of Syracuse’s hope of an appearance in the NCAA Championship Game in the second contest on Saturday evening. The Tar Heels scored most of their points from the inside, as they scored 50 points in the paint while Syracuse had just 32 points. The Orange cut their 17-point deficit down to seven with ten minutes left in the game. At that time the Tar Heels hadn’t made any three pointers, but Marcus Paige came to life at the three point line coming down the stretch. Syracuse’s comeback was ended at that point, and the Tar Heels won 83 to 66.


What an unbelievable finish to the 2016 NCAA Championship Game. It came down to the final 13.5 seconds with the North Carolina Tar Heels down by three points. The Tar Heels inbounded the ball with the clock running, marched down the court and passed the ball to Marcus Paige. One of the Villanova players tried to steal the ball but fell down in the process, leaving Paige a slight opening. Paige jumped in mid-air, twisted his body, and drained a 26-foot three pointer to tie the game.

With only 4.7 seconds remaining, you would think that the game was going to go into overtime. But if you thought that, guess again. Kris Jenkins for Villanova inbounded the ball to guard Ryan Arcidiacono and Ryan took off down the court. He then flipped the ball back to Jenkins, who was behind the arc at that point, and he rose up launching the ball in air. Down comes the rocket from outer space, swish goes the ball, giving Villanova the win by a score of 77 to 74.

This was the best NCAA Championship I have ever seen, and it will go down in history as one of the craziest endings ever.

That’s the way I $ee it….
