Two shining moments

In Monday evening's NCAA men's basketball championship, North Carolina's Marcus Paige made this incredible shot to tie the game with 4.7 seconds remaining.

Definitely hard to top a shot as clutch as that, eh?

Well, Villanova's Kris Jenkins managed to do just that.

In one of the most memorable NCAA basketball championship games ever, Villanova wins its first title since their miraculous 1985 run.

So would you consider this finish the most memorable in the history of the NCAA men's tourney?

For my money, the plucky 1983 North Carolina St. Wolfpack's mammoth upset of the Houston Cougars is still tops.

Villanova's win in 1985 was pretty amazing, too. Not as much drama at the end, but a more implausible result.
