A Classic

Seventeen years (boy, do I feel old) exactly since the night that Christian Laettner made sports history against Kentucky, we had a classic ending. It's all about the below video where Villanova basically ran the same pass-off play that made Bryce Drew famous, just setting up a drive instead of a three. Two things to notice: Reynolds locked the ball down to protect it as he cut past the two Pitt defenders and then he slides to the left as he goes up, just enough to avoid any possibility of a charge. I'm finished in all of my pools because Pitt's gone, but hats off to Reynolds and his amazing play.
