UNC Wins NCAA Championship In Glendale

Redemption Tar Heels take NCAA title 71-65 over Gonzaga

Redemption Tar Heels take NCAA title 71-65 over Gonzaga

North Carolina's Kennedy Meeks holds the championship trophy as he celebrates with his teammates after the finals of the Final Four NCAA college basketball tournament against Gonzaga, Monday, April 3, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz. This is the storied program's 6th national championship and 3rd under coach Roy Williams.

It's OK, Carolina, you can open your eyes.

The college basketball season has run its course and North Carolina has won a sixth national championship, moving within two of Kentucky's eight for second place all-time.

Gonzaga (37-2) missed nine consecutive shots in the second half and went 8:27 without a basket, but North Carolina (33-7) didn't have the offense to deliver a decisive run as it remained a one-possession game for nearly all of the second half in a battle of No. 1 seeds.

They couldn't escape the highlights from the 2016 championship game, when Marcus Paige seemingly sent the title game to overtime with an acrobatic jumper with 4.7 seconds left - only to lose when Kris Jenkins beat the buzzer with a dagger of a 3-pointer that gave Villanova the title. "Not a lot of people can say they can do that".

"For those of us who know Joel, this really was a parallel from what he did in high school", Turner said.

Just as quickly as it went viral, the basketball team adopted it as its rallying cry for the postseason.

Jackson took a zinger of a pass under the basket from Theo Pinson and converted the shot, then the ensuing free throw to take the lead for good.

Moments later, Williams-Goss twisted his ankle and neither he nor anyone on his team would score again. Williams-Goss tried to lead the Zags back despite spraining his right ankle late in the game, but couldn't get the lift he needed to get off a shot with 16 second left.

"Isaiah made, I think, I don't have the stat - I have a stat sheet but I don't have play-by-play". The Zags got the lead by as much as 7 points or more at times, but the Tar Heels weren't going down without a fight. They would've won it all previous year had it not been swiped away by a last minute buzzer beater on the behalf of the Villanova Wildcats. However, because they called 44 fouls-27 in the second half-this game couldn't have any flow.

The game "featured" 52 free throws. There were 11 fouls called in the first five minutes of the second half, which got both teams in foul trouble and completely changed the game. The game will most likely be best remembered for the overzealous officiating that led to a combined 44 fouls being called on the two teams. But as Karnowski was flailing after the ball, he inadvertently grabbed Berry around the neck. In addition, 44 combined fouls were called in the game.

"A type of guy kind of like me", Karnowski said of Meeks. "So we just gotta give it our all, '" Joel Berry said after the game.

North Carolina forward Aaron Rohlman told Sports Illustrated that only about three of the 15 Tar Heels voted for Trump. It set up the Hicks layup to put Carolina ahead by 3. The problem was that photos of the play show Meeks' hand on the end line while he had his other arm around the ball.

"I think of Coach Smith, there's no question", Williams said. "So that's tough. It's tough to hear".

Gonzaga finishes their season with a record of 37-2.

They played a little ballgame in Arizona Monday night.

For the sneaker lover, North Carolina provided plenty of eye candy on the court.

"It's been love and hate", Williams said of his relationship with Meeks, adding that he means that in a tongue-and-cheek kind of way.

"Let me think on it", Williams said.
