Villanova Senior Who Made Winning Basket Chooses To Console Opponents Rather Than Celebrate

Villanova senior Josh Hill made the shot of his life on Friday night with his team down by one point to Seton Hall in the Big East Tournament semifinals.

After a long missed three-pointer by his teammate, Hill grabbed the rebound and put it back up and in even before hitting the ground. He was fouled on the play, so he went to the line, and put Villanova ahead by two points with less than 10 seconds remaining in the game.

Here’s the play:

 

That gave Angel Delgado from Seton Hall one more chance from point blank range, but the ball rattled out of the hoop at the buzzer in dramatic fashion.

Rather than celebrating with his teammates, Hill ran over to Delgado to console him. Take a look at this incredible display of sportsmanship:

Respect.
