The North Carolina Tar Heels defeated the Gonzaga Bulldogs, 71-65 to capture their sixth overall NCAA Basketball championship.
It was Gonzaga's first ever appearance in the championship game while the Tar Heels were able to get a measure of redemption after losing a close one last year to Villanova in the title game.
Congratulations NORTH CAROLINA . . . 2016-17 NCAA Men's Basketball Champions !!!
