Photo: Duke's Christian Laettner Passes "Clutch Crown" To Villanova's Kris Jenkins

Kris Jenkin's buzzer-beater, which gave Villanova its second national title Monday night, is easily one of the greatest moments in NCAA Tournament history. 

Even Duke's Christian Laettner, who hit "The Shot" against Kentucky in 1992 to earn the final spot in the Final Four, believes so. Following Villanova's exciting win, the former Duke star even took to Twitter to pass the "clutch crown" to Jenkins.
