Highlight factory: NCAA edition

The Basketball Movement takes a look back at some of the most exciting moments and thunderous finishes from the 2017-18 NCAA season.

Basketball produces a lot of exciting highlights. Anything can happen when the clock is winding down or a player leaps to contest a shot. The 2017-18 NCAA basketball season has ended, with championships in the books and many players declaring for the NBA or WNBA drafts.

We wanted to take a few moments to look back at some of the most exciting and memorable plays from this past season. We open things up with some of the best buzzer-beaters through the regular season.

Buzzer-beaters create such an intense moment for both sides. One side is instantly crushed while the other feels elation. As the video showed, it can also put exclamation points on upsets by teams that played their hearts out to defeat higher-ranked opponents.

The next round of highlights are exciting for different reasons. Mainly though because: everyone loves slam dunks. Here are some of the best from the season.

Ladies NCAA highlights to end all highlights

In case you were under a rock during the final NCAA tournaments, you need to watch these shots by Arike Ogunbowale. As we mentioned before, buzzer-beaters are very exciting. For Ogunbowale, knocking down two monstrous buzzer-beaters two days apart made for some of he greatest moments ever in women's college ball. Take a look.

The tournament of course produced some great moments on both the men and women's side of things. For more on the tournament, we have plenty of good stuff for you here at The Movement.

As some leagues end, wind down, startup, or enter the playoffs, there will be plenty of basketball to keep up with. Keep it locked here at The Basketball Movement to stay in the loop and work on your own game.
