Obama congratulates Villanova for winning NCAA title

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama congratulated the men's basketball team at Villanova University Tuesday for winning what he described as "maybe the best title game of all time" in this year's NCAA tournament.

Forward Kris Jenkins provided the winning shot with a 3-point field goal as time expired. Jenkins did so just a few seconds after North Carolina had managed to tie the game with a remarkable shot as well.
