WATCH: Villanova's title recreated with Legos

  Kris Jenkins sinks UNC in last year's national championship.

They say there is no love like a father has for his daughter.

That is clearly the case for Jared Jacobs.

Jacobs' Instagram page (GoldYeller) is overflowing with Lego re-enactments of some of sports most recent memorable moments, ranging from Marshawn Lynch interviews to Michigan-Michigan State football. His latest creation was a bit more endearing.

Jacobs, a long-time North Carolina basketball fan, described on his Instagram page:

"My oldest daughter was born right at the beginning of March Madness. I remember watching non-stop basketball in the hospital and the first few days of bringing her home. Maybe that's part of the reason her and I have shared a special bond when it comes to the NCAA Tournament. Last year she picked @novambb to win the whole thing and I picked @unc_basketball I'll never forget watching her reaction to the final 10 seconds of that game. This year for her birthday I wanted to do something special for it. So I told her I was going to make a Lego re-enactment video dedicated to her. Happy Birthday Jovie! I hope this year is as magical as last year."

Jacobs followed through, and for Jovie's 11th birthday, he created the re-enactment Lego-style. From Marcus Paige's double-pump shot to Kris Jenkins' buzzer-beater, Jacobs nailed the final seconds of one of the most exciting finishes in Final Four history. He shared his finished product on social media and it quickly blew up.

While Jacobs has to relive a moment he'd likely rather forget, it's safe to assume he made 11-year old Jovie one happy girl.
