NEW YORK (AP) JayVaughn Pinkston ended some back-and-forth drama worthy of March with a bucket, a block and then a mad break - straight into the waiting arms of his Villanova teammates.

The Wildcats had room to embrace all 6-foot-7 of him, and still have plenty of hands free to hoist a trophy.

Pinkston had the go-ahead basket and game-saving block in the final minute to lift the 12th-ranked Wildcats over No. 19 Michigan 60-55 in the Legends Classic championship game Tuesday night.
