Brunson Caps College Career With NCAA Title

Jalen Brunson finished his collegiate basketball career in the same way he concluded his high school career: Holding a championship trophy. The 2015 Stevenson graduate won his second NCAA basketball title in three years on Monday, as Villanova defeated Michigan, 79-62, in San Antonio. Brunson became the fifth player in NCAA men’s basketball history to win the national championship in the same season he earned player of the year honors. Although held to nine points and plagued by foul trouble, Brunson made clear after the game what mattered most. Holding the championship trophy, Brunson told Jim Nantz, “This is what I want. This is what I got.” Putting team above self is why William C. Rhoden of The Undefeated called Brunson “the perfect Villanova player.” In a fitting ending to the annual “One Shining Moment” video, Brunson is shown hoisting the championship trophy surrounded by his Villanova teammates.
