Listen to the Villanova Announcers Lose Their Minds After the Kris Jenkins Buzzer-Beater (Video)
You gotta hand it to CBS basketball announcer Jim Nantz. He got to be behind the mic for one of the greatest moments in the history of college basketball—the Kris Jenkins buzzer-beater that won Villanova a National Championship—and he nailed it with an excellent call.
“Four-point-seven seconds. Villanova, trying to go the length of the court, with Arcidiacono. Three seconds at mid-court, gives it to Jenkins, FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP, YEEEEEEEEES!!!”
But as good as the Nantz call was from an objective point of view, if you’re a Villanova fan, the call by Scott Graham and Brian Finneran on the Villanova Team Stream is probably going to go down as your favorite.
“Arcidiacono, ball in his hand, Arcidiacono, for Jenkins, for the win, YEEEAAAAAAH KRRWHAGGLFUGLAAAAA WHOOOOO HOOO HOOO HOOO ARCI! TO JENKINS FOR THREE AND THE WIN! NATIONAL CHAMPIONS! NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!”
I mean, these guys were about 1,000,000,000x more excited than Villanova coach Jay Wright. Take a look:

Objectively Nantz had the better call. But you gotta love the way the Nova guys absolutely lose their sh*t.
Sports is the best.
