The Virginia Cavaliers are passing their national title trophy on to the next champion.

The simulations are being run via ncaagamesim.com by selecting the matchups and compiling them based on what happens with ONE CLICK of the mouse. This is the best way for us to simulate the chaos that could ensue during a single basketball game.

Here is your championship game simulation:

Dayton 90, Oregon 87 (OT)

I am furious at this projection only because it is so entertaining and makes me wish we could have actually seen it happen. After this entire silly simulation, it was Obi Toppin and the Dayton Flyers who capped off a dream season. Toppin and Payton Pritchard had been the two best performers throughout the tournament and they went toe-to-toe in this one. Toppin finished the game with 31 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists, while Pritchard went off for 23 points, 13 assists and four steals.

Oregon went into the locker room up eight at 41-33 and had held Toppin to only 10 points heading into the locker room. Dayton would respond by going on a 14-2 run right out of the gate in the second half and both teams would trade blows from there, heading into the end of regulation tied 78-78. Toppin would score eight of the games final ten points and sink a pair of free throws at the end of the game to seal it for the Flyers.

And there you have it.
