North Carolina Wins 6th National Basketball Championship After Beating Gonzaga

PHOENIX — There will be no heartbreak for the North Carolina Tar Heels this time.

A year after losing on the first buzzer-beating three-pointer in NCAA men’s basketball championship history, the Tar Heels are back on top, defeating Gonzaga 71-65 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. It’s UNC’s sixth title and first since 2009.

In 2016 in Houston, UNC (33-7) lost in a thriller, succumbing to Villanova on that last-second three-pointer by Kris Jenkins.

Gonzaga (37-2) was in the national championship game for the first time. It was also the Bulldogs’ first Final Four appearance.

The Tar Heels’ national title — the school’s sixth — comes a year after UNC lost to Villanova in the NCAA final on a last-second three-point shot.
