2. Exciting March Madness ending

In one of the most exciting NCAA men’s basketball championships in recent memory, Villanova University defeated The University of North Carolina 77-74. UNC tied the game when senior guard Marcus Paige made a tough 3-point shot with 4 seconds left on the clock. After a timeout, Villanova point guard, Ryan Arcidiacono, dribbled the length of the court and found a trailing Josh Hart open for 3. Hart hit the shot just as time expired, giving Villanova its first men’s basketball championship since 1985.
