I hope not, he's had flashes like this before (none quite this brilliant though) but he's still wildly inconsistent and has a lot of stretches that are more like the first half when he was a non-factor.  Talent's there but he needs more seasoning.  But I suppose if one great half - really one half of one half - makes him millions in rookie contract money it's hard to say no.

Shameless plug for a project of mine. Think about how many of these players WON'T get drafted, and what kind of education they are receiving at e.g. Oklahoma. Often times they can't even afford meals during their college careers.

Make a statement to the NCAA and pass it along:

Villanova looks like a scary team. Bounced somewhat early in year's past but must consider that one was to eventual national champs (UK), too. Hope Heels don't run into them along the way.

Talk about jinxing oneself!

Here's to the 'Heels. Nova is going to bring it. UNC has an advantage inside but needs to play a solid game to seal the deal tonight. Let's go!!

That is insane!

Ha, reading the comments before mine, I don't know if people are talking about UNC's shot or Villanova's shot.  What a great ending with a huge shot by UNC, then the huge answer by Villanova.

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

That is one of the most incredible endings to any game I have seen. I'm not exactly sure if I can sleep now

Nova outcoached them, took away interior advantage.

Words can't express...

Ugh. Maybe another shot in 8 years or so :/

Still live by my 'Heels, though. Paige got himself drafted tonight. May never play a meaningful NBA minute, but that kid's got heart. Wish he developed as they had hoped. Good for him, though.

Pretty crazy ending.

I can't claim to be a college bball aficionado, but glad I saw this one live. Funny championship in that neither team really had any players that anybody knows or is going to know.
