Villanova beats North Carolina on last-second 3 for NCAA title

The Villanova junior answered a double-clutch, game-tying three-pointer by North Carolina’s Marcus Paige with a buzzer-beating three of his own Monday night to lift the Wildcats to a 77-74 victory and the national championship.

Jenkins had to come up big after Paige collected a pass on the top right side of the arc and, with Arcidiacono running at him, double-clutched and pumped it in to tie the game at 74 with 4.7 seconds left.

Coach Jay Wright called timeout and called the play the Wildcats have worked on all season.
