North Carolina wins it all
Last night North Carolina capped off their season by winning the Men's NCAA Basketball title. UNC was the #1 preseason team, and many assumed they would win the title. The Tar Heels didn't disappoint, as they finished their season with a 34-4 record. In the title game they dominated Michigan St. Up 55-34 at halftime, the Spartans never closed the gap allowing UNC to handily win. With a final score of 89-72, North Carolina won their 5th national title. This was the second for Roy Williams at UNC, and seemed to be destined when last year's player of the year Tyler Hansbrough agreed to come back for his senior season. Hansbrough, Ty Lawson, and Wayne Ellington all had great tournaments. Ellington was named the MVP of the Final Four. With the victory the Tar Heels became one of the first teams in recent memory to begin and end the season as #1. As the NCAA Tournament concluded, analysts were already looking towards next year. However, until draft declarations are made it's far too early to make predictions. Here's to a great season.
