- NCAA March Madness
- Villanova won the men’s basketball national championship with a dominant 79-62 win over Michigan.
- In one of the great traditions in sports, TBS aired “One Shining Moment” at the end of their broadcast, recapping the best moments from March Madness.
- The video includes all the surprise stars that we came to love during the 67 games, including Sister Jean and Donte DiVincenzo, the hero of the championship game.
- There is also an appearance from UMBC, the authors of the biggest upset in NCAA Tournament history, and Grayson Allen.
- “One Shining Moment” was written by David Barrett and you can find the lyrics at the bottom of this post.
“One Shining Moment” lyrics, via DavidBarrett.com
The ball is tipped and there you are you’re running for your life you’re a shooting star And all the years no one knows just how hard you worked but now it shows… (in) ONE SHINING MOMENT, IT’S ALL ON THE LINE ONE SHINING MOMENT, THERE FROZEN IN TIME
But time is short and the road is long in the blinking of an eye ah that moment’s gone And when it’s done win or lose you always did your best cuz inside you knew… (that) ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU REACHED DEEP INSIDE ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU KNEW YOU WERE ALIVE
Feel the beat of your heart feel the wind in your face it’s more than a contest it’s more than a race…
And when it’s done win or lose you always did your best cuz inside you knew… (that) ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU REACHED FOR THE SKY ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU KNEW ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU WERE WILLING TO TRY ONE SHINING MOMENT….
