Four Kentucky players featured in One Shining Moment

Villanova took home the 2018 National Championship tonight, defeating Michigan by a final score of 79-62.

Immediately after the game, we got to see the latest edition of One Shining Moment, featuring four Kentucky Wildcats.

PJ Washington’s shimmy dance, Hamidou Diallo’s windmill slam, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s defense, and Sacha Killeya-Jones’ crazy putback dunk were all featured.

Take a look:

And with that, the 2017-18 college basketball season comes to a close.

    Wow, the quick cuts were horrible. Reminded me of Taken 3, which was horrible as well. Stop watching 30 seconds in. I’m not a big fan of tbs doing the tourney.

    Nova is exactly what I have been saying I wish we were. They have several 3-4 year quality players, a nice Soph off the bench and a couple quality FR that are not counted on and given time to grow. When I said I wish we had several quality 3-4 year guys I got bashed and people said we had that with 10 loss Tubby. Well Jay Wright is proving you can build a program and sustain it, his last 3 recruiting classes were 28, 29 and 46 ranked. Sure he does not have 5 lottery picks but who the hell cares. He will lose a couple Juniors this year but seems to have pieces in place to replace them. Plus the fans get to know the players and he still has 1 lottery pick this year plus Brunson will probably get drafted. All those who bashed, look it can be done. Same with Michigan, he has been great the last 5 years, better than us by the way and he does it with very few NBA players, these guys actually coach.

      It has only taken 18 years to do it. You probably would have been calling for his head the 15 years before because of all of his disappointing losses the first weekend in all of those tourneys. How many 1 seeds has he led to 2nd round knockouts? Would you have been willing to deal with all of those years of disappointment?

      You nailed it Cletis. Callitlikeiseeit, if he were a Villanova fan, would have been calling for his head to roll 15 years ago

      You got Chris Mack – be happy. You should be good in 15-20 years, too.

    Congratulations to the Wildcats for their achievement of 2 titles in the last 3 yrs. The Villanova Wildcats that is! Their coach is paid 5.5 million per season. I would consider him a bargain for Villanova, compared to the last 3 yrs of the 8 million dollar man’s results at UK. Villanova also won all 6 games in the tournament by double digits. They play their style and not to the strengths of the teams that they played. Well done Jay Wright and company!

      Why don’t you switch Wildcat teams? Please…

      Like Cletis said, it only took him 15 years to do it..

      You’re not satisfied with all of Cal’s final fours and NC, yet you fail to recognize that Wright only made 1 final four in his first nine seasons. How would you feel about those results.

      They won by double digits bc they all could shoot. Also, Jay Wright is gonna be paid more now. Nova gonna have to make him the highest paid coach or he gone. Im calling it now. Coach K is gonna retire and when he does Jay Wright will coach the Dukies.

    Yep, but every other time he lost before the second weekend if I remember correctly.

    The quick cuts were terrible. Should of been more than 10 seconds to the championship gsme.

      You realize it was made prior to the game, and played immediately after. The championship game, especially a blow out where there was no drama, gets more time in a 1 min clip

    I swear some of these comments….why the [email protected] are you even on a KY fan site? Go jump on the Nova bandwagon….let me guess it was North Carolina did it right last year??? Also willing to bet you also think Coach K is a super mastermind of the game…if so why’d they get beat out in the Elite 8 with FIVE first round NBA players on their team? Hmmm what about last year? Almost same story….Bet you were also on the Zags nuts too! All of these schools doing it right when they win it that year but Cal doing it all wrong. That’s BS!

      K is a great coach but he, like Cal, will not win a title if he depends on FR to do it. I thought he had a better chance because he did have Allen but he seemed to be more of a jerk than a leader. Plus he was inconsistent. Now he may have a chance next year if the top 3 FR are as good as most think because he will have some kids back they can learn from. We did not, our veterans this year were guys that played like 4 mins a game last year and our FR were not as talented as Cal thought.

    Plus one more: Charles! Once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat.

    Let me start off by saying that I greatly admire what Jay Wright and ‘Nova have accomplished. That team reminded me of the 96 UK team. Sheer domination. Hard to say if they can follow it up next year, but it looks promising for them. And I do agree that we would all like to see Cal keep a few guys around for 3 years or more to give the team some steady guidance. I’m sure he would like that too – I don’t think he intended to be starting 5 freshmen this year. He was probably counting on guys like Mathews and Isaac to hang around for a few years. Hopefully we will keep a good core of players for next year and have a formidable team again. If everyone leaves, I will be surprised.

    BTW, people who want Cal out of here and think we could get Jay Wright at UK are insane. No way he leaves what he has built at that school. It would be just like what happened with Donovan. Like it or not, Cal is still the best fit for UK’s program. He will be a tough act to follow, and I feel bad for the coach who will have to come in right after he leaves. It’s going to be a hangover for a few years.

      will be tough as the next coach will have no talent returning the way Cal recruits. New guy will have to get all new players and build a program, not just try to recruit 7 NBA ready guys. Hope, when it happens, they can get some transfers etc.
