Ryan Arcidiacono live-tweeted Villanova's NCAA tournament win in hilarious fashion


Ryan Arcidiacono took his trademark brand of hustle to Twitter Sunday afternoon in live-tweeting a re-air of Villanova's 2016 NCAA title game win over North Carolina.

This was clearly a special occasion for Arch, who said he's spent his time in self-quarantine binging Nova highlights.


He provided cheeky commentary throughout the game and, of course, was never afraid to laugh at himself.


A fun back-and-forth broke out between Arcidiacono and his old Villanova teammate Josh Hart, who repeatedly chided Arch for two ill-timed turnovers in the game's final five minutes:

Arcidiacono exacted some modicum of vengeance, though:


The end of this one, you may remember, was about as wild as any NCAA final in recent memory. Over the course of those five minutes (in which Arch committed two turnovers), the Tar Heels flipped a 10-point deficit into a tie game at 74 with six seconds remaining.

Then, Kris Jenkins made magic happen — and off an Arcidiacono assist, lest you forget:

Arch ended that game with 16 points and two assists, the second of which will live forever in the hearts of college fans everywhere. 

Though we're sorely missing live March Madness right now, replays like this are a light in trying times. Thanks, Arch.
