That’s right, you could be headed to Madison Square Garden just for going through your pictures and videos of the greatest shot in Villanova Basketball history. For me personally, I was huddled in my basement with friends and family trying hard not to wake our 4 month old daughter when Kris Jenkins hit the shot for the championship. We cheered, cried, group hugged... and miraculously still didn’t wake up my daughter!
