#MMVault Watch Party: Villanova's stunning 66-64 upset of Georgetown

Rollie Massimino -- just the name makes you smile. In 1985, Massimino and Villanova took March Madness to another level -- and not just because it was the first year the field was expanded to 64 teams. (It also was the last tournament without a shot clock.)

The No. 8 seed, Villanova -- led by the tournament's Most Outstanding Player, Ed Pinckney -- defeated top-seeded Georgetown 66-64 in one of college basketball's greatest upsets. Villanova remains the lowest-seeded team to win the national championship.

NCAA.com is reliving that magical moment with the #MMVault Watch Party at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday. Fans can watch the entire 1985 classic on NCAA.com and follow @marchmadness for pertinent tweets related to the game action.
