Seahawks Players React To Villanova's NCAA Championship Win

Check out Seahawks players social media reaction to Villanova's college basketball championship over North Carolina.

Take a look at which Seahawks players' alma maters are still alive in the Sweet 16 of the 2016 NCAA men's basketball tournament. 

March Madness came to a close on Monday night, when the No. 2-seeded Villanova Wildcats squared off against the No. 1-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels in the NCAA men's basketball national championship game at NRG Stadium, the NFL home of the Houston Texans.

Following a sensational double-clutch three-point shot from UNC senior guard Marcus Paige that tied the game at 74 with less than five seconds to play, Villanova junior forward Kris Jenkins responded with a buzzer-beating three-pointer of his own to give the Wildcats a 77-74 win, the school's first national title since 1985.

Needless to say, there was plenty of social media reaction to last night's instant classic. Two Seahawks players in particular - wide receiver Tyler Lockett and offensive lineman Justin Britt - were extra active in sharing reaction as the game unfolded.
