Villanova’s historic Final Four victory Saturday (April 2) had Buzz Aldrin flying high.

The Wildcats’ 44-point drubbing of Oklahoma — the biggest rout in Final Four history — sealed the Apollo 11 moonwalker’s victory over ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale in the fourth annual “Allstate March Mayhem Challenge.”

“Wildcats win…and I have a better bracket than @DickieV. Now that’s a reason to party! #MarchMayhem,” Buzz Aldrin said via his Twitter account, @TheRealBuzz, on Saturday. The post was accompanied by a GIF depicting confetti showering down on Aldrin, with the worlds “Party like it’s 1985” prominently featured. (Villanova last won the men’s college basketball title in 1985.)
