REPEAT AFTER ME: VILLANOVA BETTER PUT LAST YEAR’S NATIONAL TITLE IN THE REARVIEW AS IT SHOOTS FOR ANOTHER!

An NCAA tournament buzzer-beater is the ultimate sports flashbulb memory. In even the most stoic and unaffiliated, watching one unfold can cause an uncontrollable emotional response. Each last-second basket has its own often mythological backstory. Kris Jenkins’s is unique. After all, his game winner clinched a national title. “I’m biased, clearly,” Ryan Arcidiacono said, “but it’s the best shot in college basketball history.”

And now it’s in the past. America may enjoy reliving the moment; since it was posted, the official clip of the NCAA tournament winner has more than 2.5 million YouTube views — but those involved in making it happen don’t have that option. Even with the shot fresh in their minds, they’ve had to move on. Some have been able to do it from a distance. Others don’t have the luxury. To move forward, they’ve had to sweep out all the excess bits of joy. The confetti has stopped falling. For now:
