Watch: ‘One Shining Moment’ Perfectly Caps Off 2015 NCAA Tournament

NCAA, Duke

With Duke topping Wisconsin 68-63 in Monday night’s NCAA title game — thanks to some stellar guard play from freshmen Tyus Jones and Grayson Allen — the only thing left to do is sit back and enjoy another college basketball tradition, the playing of ‘One Shining Moment,’ a video montage that always gives chills.

You knew it wouldn’t be complete without Georgia State head coach Ron Hunter’s stool mishap, and the crying Villanova piccolo player. And let’s be honest, with all due respect to Jennifer Hudson, the only true version of this song belongs to the late, great Luther Vandross. Here’s hoping CBS learned it’s lesson and will never, ever make the egregious mistake of playing any version of the song other than Vandross’ from now until the end of time.
