The first East Regionals I attended were in the early 1960s and saw some really great talent. That was the first time I saw great talent in person.

Very surprising first half, but I'll take the 5 point lead. The announcers are as surprised as I am about the way the game is going.

Congrats to Nova. They deserved the win.

Both teems played well. To bad the refs didn't. Lots of non calls that made a big difference but that's the way it goes sometimes.

One of the very few times that I agree with you Scuba. But as Charlie said, Villanova did play well, and we didn't play as well as well as we should have. However, if only one of the several bad calls had been made correctly, it wouldn't have come down to those last shots.

Villanova won the game on their own merit - the referees bad or missed calls went both ways, as they usually do. It was a great game by two well-coached teams, and a shame someone had to lose. Please don't blame the refs if your team loses.

I didn't have a team. Mine was gone long ago. I just witnessed the blatant missed calls that even the announcers acknowledged. Most all favored Villanova and the announcers stated that also. Even went so far as to ask for a replay to prove their point. Refs just wanted an underdog to win.

I thought the officiating was the worst ever in a championship game and I thought that Nova, at least to some degree, got the best of it. But, the way the game was played overall and more importantly the way the game ended, with Paige's absolutely unbelievable shot and then Jenkins' - makes it impossible for me to question Nova's right to the win. It was meant to be.

I can think of one call near the end when Villanova was charged with a blocking foul, but it was clearly a charge on NC, resulting in 2 made foul shots. If Villanova had lost, I wouldn't have blamed it on the call. Perhaps, Nova was led by seniors, who better understood teamwork?
