The only drama in the National Championship game came in the last minute when Villanova took possession with the score 79-60, one point shy of the O/U 140. Instead of running out the clock, Omari Spellman attacked the the rim but clanked the dunk. At the other end, Ibi Watson and Isaiah Livers each had good looks at 3-pointers but came up empty. With time running down and 10 seconds left, Watson put back an offensive rebound that toppled the score Over--causing a seismic shift of 86 GridCard points.
Even more unlikely and impactful--the Tigers scored three runs in the ninth to tie and won in the tenth on Thursday. In Chicago. In the snow. Without Miggy. This unexpected turn shuffled ninety GridCard points and helped JeepCreeper (36) defeat Kevin K (30) and earn her first GridCard win. KDet047 (35) finished second and mac (33) and Jodyann (33) tied for third, each picking up wins against the ProGrid Tour who were led by MMc (31).
