2015 'One Shining Moment' video: Duke's run to the championship in one perfect video

New, comment

♫The ball is tipped, and there you are♫

Yes, "One Shining Moment" is about your new national champion. And it's about Kentucky losing despite not having done so a single time since last year's national championship game. And it's about all we've unceasingly focused on for the past week: Kentucky, Michigan State, Wisconsin and, of course, Duke.

But what all have you stored in the back of your mind over the past three weeks? Did you forget about R.J. Hunter's buzzer-beater to beat Baylor, and his dad falling off his stool on the Georgia State bench? How about North Carolina State's last-second win over LSU? Weren't there 10 one-point games on the first day of the tournament? Was it closer to 100?

We all love the tournament for different reasons, and that's what's great about One Shining Moment: All of those feelings are captured in this video. Joy, heartbreak, victory, defeat and a whole bunch of other things as well. One Shining Moment is meant to make you feel everything you felt over the course of the NCAA Tournament in just a few minutes, and somehow, it always does the job. The song's lyrics don't really hold up under the scrutiny of Google Translate, but don't let that spoil the video for you.

Come back soon, college basketball!

SB Nation presents: There were some questionable calls, but Duke is still the champ
