North Carolina defeats Gonzaga for redemption in national championship
After beating Gonzaga 71-65 in the national title game, North Carolina coach Roy Williams didn't sound very excited about the prospect of meeting President Donald Trump during the winners' traditional visit to D.C. You'd feel the same, too, even if you were Michael Jordan, because he was right there in the stands for the 2016 NCAA championship game. "I said he hasn't called me, but, guys, knowing him, he's going to say, 'I went a year ago, you lost.' That's what I was thinking". "I left him in".

"I'm thinking our offense stinks".

The Tar Heels probably didn't mind that both teams entered the bonus with 12:49 left in the game, turning the final minutes largely into a battle of free throws.

"I felt like when I was out there I was doing everything I can". "Things have been swirling around", Williams said. "So nobody made me aware of it or I certainly would have within the last minute there or two minutes".
"I do that all the time in practice where I hide I guess you could say", Meeks said about the steal.
Josh Perkins contributed 13 points, but Przemek shot 1-for-8 in scoring nine. In the final 100 seconds of the game, the Bulldogs allowed the Tar Heels to go on an 8-0 run, which ultimately sealed the game and solidified Carolina as the winners.
