Wrapping up the tournament:
Final game recap:
After setting a record for the combined margin of victory in the Final 4 games (61 points), we were not sure what to expect in the championship game with # 2 seed Villanova up against # 1 seed North Carolina. The championship game turned out to be a great game with Villanova coming back from 5 down at halftime to win the game on a last second 3 pointer by Kris Jenkins to seal a 77-74. Marcus Paige (UNC) made an incredible double clutch 3 pointer with 4.7 seconds left in the game to tie it before Ryan Arcidiacono drove the length of the court and kicked back to Jenkins for the game winning shot. Phil Booth a reserve for Villanova came off the bench to score 20 points for the Wildcats to help keep them in the game.
The 2016 All tournament team was comprised of Villanova's Ryan Booth, Josh Hart and MOP Ryan Arcidiacono, and from North Carolina, Brice Johnson & Joel Berry.
Every year we talk about how great the tournament was after conclusion and again, 2016 didn't fall too far from being another great year other than # 2 seed Michigan State going down in round 1 which caught everybody by surprise.
