WATCH: 'One Shining Moment' 2019 NCAA Tournament Highlight Video

The 2019 NCAA Tournament has officially wrapped. It all came down to one final game on Monday, April 8 with the No. 1 seed Virginia Cavaliers and No. 3 seed Texas Tech Red Raiders facing off in the tournament final at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The game went down to the wire and treated college basketball fans to overtime before the Cavaliers brought home the first national championship in program history.
Texas Tech punched its ticket to the NCAA Tournament Final after knocking off No. 2 Michigan State in the Final Four. They had earned their Final Four bid after a run through the West Region which included wins over No. 14 Northern Kentucky, No. 6 Buffalo, No. 2 Michigan, and No. 1 Gonzaga.
Virginia, meanwhile, knocked off No. 16 Gardner-Webb, No. 9 Oklahoma, No. 12 Oregon, and No. 3 Purdue in the South Region before taking down the surprising No. 5 Auburn Tigers in the Final Four.
This season marked the third time Virginia had ever reached the Final Four, but they were finally able to get over the hump after a disastrous tournament outing last season. It was just one year ago, that Bennett and the Cavaliers entered the tournament as the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament before suffering a stunning upset in the opening round to No. 16 seed UMBC.
As is always the case, with the tournament in the books, it’s time to look back at the epic action throughout March Madness with the unrivaled and always highly-anticipated “One Shining Moment” highlight video.

‘One Shining Moment’ Lyrics

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, you knew
One Shining Moment…
