Villanova secured an all-time classic victory over North Carolina in the NCAA final in an only way imaginable: on a buzzer beater that will stay inscribed forever in college basketball history books.

As soon as Kris Jenkins of Villanova hit the game-winning shot for the NCAA championship, Michael Jordan’s meme exploded on social media. However, this was totally expected and most people found it unsurprising.

Here’s the video of the buzzer beater:

Jordan was found smiling after the final moment and said something to his friend Ahmad Rashad. If one can leap read, then it read something like “good shot”.

Internet was also filled with pictures of his crying memes.

Jordan’s emotional moment with Craig Sager also did not escape the prying eyes of the social media.
