Villanova's magical final shot may go down as the greatest shot in the history of March Madness. For Nova to come back after Marcus Paige's insane off balance three and calmly hit a buzzer beater takes an unmeasurable amount of calmness and a perfected execution. Kris Jenkins, Ryan Arcidiacono, and Daniel Ochefu (including cleaning the court) all stepped up and ended the National Championship game with true perfection. But how were they so perfect?
Practice obviously. The old adage is that practice makes perfect and Villanova practiced the final play on countless occasions. It was such a well oiled machine that even after the game, the players are able to recreate the final shot exactly how it was during the game. The best part? In the 11 times the play is run, Kris Jenkins hits the "game winner" 7 times. That means he hit the shot 64% of the time. Now we can understand why Jay Wright was so nonchalant about whole thing. He expected it.
Here's a video of Jenkins, Arcidiacono, Ochefu recreating the final 4.6 seconds of the National Title Game. We don't blame you if your adrenaline starts rushing again after you see Paige hit the shot. It was an unforgettable moment.
