One of the greatest buzzer beaters in ACC history came in the 2016 NCAA championship game and actually we got 2-1 in that one.

UNC’s Marcus Paige hit one of the greatest pressure shots we’ve ever seen, tying the game at 74-74 with 4.7 seconds left.

Unfortunately for UNC, Villanova had the perfect play drawn up. You probably remember it, but if you don’t, here it is in all its glory.

This game had two of the most epic shots in tournament history in a span of less than five seconds. It was a shame for Paige that he was upstaged just seconds after a brilliant stunner of a shot. but upstaged he was.
