Villanova won its first national championship in over 30 years thanks to a buzzer beating three-pointer by Kris Jenkins and while the Wildcats’ reactions to the shot were fantastic in themselves, none may have been better than that of Turner analyst and Basketball Hall of Famer Charles Barkley.
Candid video of Sir Charles watching the shot from the Turner desk on the court was posted to Twitter. Check it out below!
Thrill of victory…

It isn’t at all surprising that Chuck would have that reaction. Though he is an accomplished former player and fantastic broadcaster, it just goes to show that he’s a fan of the game at heart and chose to celebrate by doing the ultimate happy dance.
Moreover, as an added bonus, his fellow analyst Kenny “The Jet” Smith is a former North Carolina Tar Heel, and that team just happened to be on the receiving end of Villanova’s clutch shooting last night.
Keep it up, Chuck. Keep doing you.
