The NCAA College Basketball National Championship was contested between Gonzaga and North Carolina on Monday night.
This is what should have happened after the game for those three men and their alternate: When they entered their locker room, black-and-white confetti should have fallen on them, but instead of hearing "One Shining Moment" they should have heard "Anticipation". A year in the making, North Carolina got their redemption from 2016's championship game.
North Carolina's Isaiah Hicks had missed 15 of the first 17 shots that he took in the Final Four. Despite a referee standing right on top of them, no call was made. "It's two teams that desperately wanted to be crowned national champion". Jackson has been a 3-point threat all season.
Gonzaga's numbers were even worse 20 for 59 for 33.9 percent. The Zags figured while they're here, might as well win the whole thing. And won. The Tar Heels missed 23 of 27 3-point shots.
Officiating had nothing to do with the final score of the NCAA men's championship game.
He quickly changed the subject to the banner they'd be putting up in Chapel Hill's Dean Smith Center, his third banner and the Tar Heels' sixth. That's a shooting percentage of 34.
Liverpool concedes late goal to draw against Bournemouth
Despite the fact that Joshua King was surrounded by red shirts, the Bournemouth midfielder still managed to get his shot off. Instead, it was a tactical switch by Klopp to a back five to solidify the 2-1 result , but it wrecked Liverpool's momentum.
North Carolina still couldn't deliver a decisive run, and it was a one-possession game for much of the second half, when foul trouble dogged both teams. The Zags shot considerably better from 3, knocking down eight of their 19 attempts.
After UNC trailed 35-32 at halftime, the officials must have drank some powerful energy drinks. But that was because numerous players had left the school and joined the NBA, Circa reported.
He hit his first shot, a 3-pointer from the left wing, but unlike Saturday night in the national semifinals against OR, when he would miss his 12 of his next 13 shots, Berry didn't go cold.
Coach Roy Williams had at least raised the possibility of whether Berry would be ready to play early in the week, though it seemed unlikely that the guy who might be the Tar Heels' toughest competitor wouldn't give it a go. Instead, the Polish import laid a giant egg that his teammates could not overcome. But replays showed the officials missed a crucial call down the stretch, too. The Bulldogs' Zach Collins - the hero of a Final Four win over SC - fouled out with 5:03 to go after playing only 14 minutes. Both teams were in the bonus. Gonzaga fouled Berry, who made one of two free throws with seven seconds left for the Tar Heels last points of the night. It was an absolute nightmare. As he wrestled with Gonzaga's Silas Melson for the ball with his left hand, the palm of Meeks's right hand rested on the court out of bounds. That ref, not three yards away, called a jump ball.
The Tar Heels hit the hardwood in stellar Jordan Brand styles executed in North Carolina's signature blue and white colors - with the exception of freshman forward Tony Bradley's pink and white Air Jordan XXXI.
