Villanova stuns Georgetown 66-64 in the NCAA Championship Game in Lexington, Kentucky. In upsetting Georgetown, the Wildcats coached by Rollie Massimino played the perfect game. They ran a slow four-corners offense to keep the ball away from the Hoyas, while shooting 78.6% (22 of 28) from the field, including missing only one shot in the second half. Ed Pinckney, who had 16 points in the title game, was tournament’s Most Outstanding Player.
