Perfect Upset: The 1985 Villanova vs. Georgetown NCAA Championship

Duration :


Summary: It was a game that defined what "March Madness" is all about. In one of the most stunning upsets in college basketball history, Villanova University triumphed over heavily favored Georgetown in the 1985 NCAA title game. This HBO Sports documentary marks the 20th anniversary of this extraordinary sports moment with a look at how an undermanned, lightly regarded Villanova team advanced to the Final Four with a string of remarkable upsets. The film also examines the Georgetown team--led by the intimidating Patrick Ewing--and their impact on the emerging hip-hop phenomenon. Interviews include John Thompson, Rollie Massamino, Ewing, Gary McLain, Ed Pinckney and Chris Mullin. (TVPG) (AL)
