When Villanova won its first championship in 31 years on Monday night, students celebrated with a full display of Wildcat pride.
At The Pavilion, where they gathered to watch the 77-74 victory over North Carolina, students displayed all sorts of costumes, face paint and enthusiasm.
Here, we have gathered some of the most memorable images from the game watching and subsequent victory celebration after one of the most impressive NCAA Tournament runs in college basketball history.
The celebration will continue into Tuesday as Villanova classes have reportedly been canceled, and the team is expected to arrive back on campus late this afternoon.
