HOUSTON, Texas — What a shot.

Junior forward Kris Jenkins hit a three at the buzzer, and No. 2 seed Villanova won the NCAA men’s basketball national championship in thrilling fashion over No. 1 seed North Carolina, 77-74, at NRG Stadium in Houston.

It’s the first buzzer-beater on a three-pointer in national championship history. Villanova also became the first team to win the national championship game on a buzzer-beater since N.C. State defeated Houston 54-52 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 1983. Monday’s game marked the 33rd anniversary of that 1983 championship game.

The win is Villanova’s second championship in program history, the first coming in 1985. It’s also the first championship for head coach Jay Wright, his first appearance in a national title game.
