College Basketball – North Carolina Are National Champions

Posted on April 4, 2017 in Sports News - Yooper & Michigan.

North Carolina went on an 8-0 scoring run in the last two minutes of the game to seal the National Championship in men’s college basketball.

Despite playing on a pair of badly sprained ankles, point guard Joel Berry scored a game-high 22 points to lead North Carolina to a 71 – 65 win over Gonzaga in last night’s championship game of the

NCAA Tournament.

It is North Carolina’s 6th national championship and Coach Roy Williams third.
