Ryan Arcidiancono was the most outstanding player of 2016. He led the tournament in steals and assists. Ryan had a very successful career at Villanova and he is projected to get drafted into the NBA this year. On Monday Villanova played North Carolina in the national championship. It was a very close game and it was also one of the best National Championships in history. Villanova won the game on a buzzzer beating shot by Kris Jenkins. Jenkins was very quiet the whole game but when needed most, the senior showed up and got the job done. The Wildcats won their first championship since 1985, and both of their NCAA championships came on buzzer beating shots. Next year the team will be very good with the returning talent and all of the new recruits. The Villanova Wildcats are a very ferocious team and they are a serious contender in the future.
