As the buzzer sounds, Juvonte Reddic and the Virginia Commonwealth University Rams celebrate after knocking off top-seeded Kansas in San Antonio en route to the NCAA Final Four.

Photographer’s note: At the NCAA tournament you’re assigned a spot to sit that’s roughly 24 by 24 inches. You can’t move during the game. I was seated almost directly behind the photographer for Sports Illustrated. When VCU won the game I hoped the front tier of photographers would remain seated and it did. I used a medium-range zoom lens to get this image. Sports Illustrated ran a double-page spread of the almost identical moment.
