North Carolina is the 2016-2017 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Champions.  The Tar Heels outlasted Gonzaga 71-65 in the National Championship Game Monday night to take home the sixth title in school history and the third under head coach Roy Williams.

There was a point during the tournament when it looked like North Carolina may not make it to the second weekend. In its second round matchup against Arkansas, the Tar Heels blew a 17-point lead and were down by five with three minutes left before closing the game on a 12-0 run to beat the Razorbacks 72-65.  During that game, many college basketball fans were not impressed with North Carolina…

Things can change pretty quickly.  Congratulations to the Tar Heels.
