On April 1, 1985, in Lexington, Kentucky’s fabled Rupp Arena, Georgetown University, the defending national champions and prohibitive favorites took the court against Rollie Massimino’s Villanova Wildcats. What happened that night has been called the greatest upset in the history of the NCAA Basketball Tournament and, arguably, the greatest college basketball game ever played. When it was over John Thompson and his Hoyas stood stunned on the sidelines as Rollie and his Wildcats celebrated their improbable victory and fans around the nation let out a collective tension-relieving sigh. “The Perfect Game” re-creates the heart thumping excitement of the game with detailed coverage of the season in the Big East Conference that saw three of the Final Four participants all coming from the same conference. “The Perfect Game” takes you behind the scenes of the games leading up to the championship. You get an up close look into the minds of the two coaching staffs as they prepared for the game — the third meeting between the two that season. Author Kyle Keiderling shows us the nail biting drama on the court and takes us behind the scenes as the upstart Villanova Wildcats face off against Patrick Ewing and the seemingly invincible Hoyas, in a game that has retained its aura and impact on fans over the years.
