This weekend, many college basketball teams will find out whether they've earned a berth to the NCAA tournament. Villanova University, on the bubble earlier this year, is likely to earn a spot.
That school's team made history 28 years ago, when they beat heavily favored Georgetown in the 1985 NCAA championship. That game is the subject of a new book by Philadelphia Inquirer sports writer Frank Fitzpatrick, "The Perfect Game: How Villanova's shocking 1985 upset of mighty Georgetown changed the landscape of college hoops forever."
"NewsWorks Tonight" Producer Shai Ben-Yaacov spoke with Frank Fitzpatrick about his take on the game.
