Final Jeopardy! category: COLLEGES & UNIVERSITIES
Final Jeopardy! clue: This Catholic university gets its name from the Latin for “New” & “House” & was in the news in Spring 2016
What is Villanova University?
As I have done for much of July (and will continue in Season 33), the final results and stats can be found in the comments section!
Remember to vote in our Poll of the Week!
In case you’d forgotten, Philadelphia’s Villanova University (Villa = House, Nova = New) was in the news due to defeating the University of North Carolina to win the NCAA Championship.
And much like the heart-stopping buzzer beater to win the NCAA basketball tournament this past spring, this week has had some heart-stopping finishes. A very fitting Final Jeopardy to act as a season’s conclusion.
What a great season this was. Season 33 begins on my birthday: September 12.
