Missed call helps UNC in final minute of game

UNC wins NCAA men's basketball title

Berry II would then get the loose ball and hit Jackson with an outlet pass that led to a dunk that sealed the win for North Carolina. I'm not sure. Watch this and try to tell me where the foul is.

As someone who was in college just two years ago, I really can't blame these UNC students for celebrating like they did. This was the Bulldogs' first Final Four appearance.

It was what the Tar Heels had to do because the team that made 36 percent of its three-pointers and 70 percent of its free throws this season was 4-27 behind the arc Monday for a breezy 14.8 percent and 15 of 26 from the free-throw line, 57.7 percent.

They won their last five NCAA Tournament games by an average of 5.6 points, earning a one-point victory over OR in the Final Four before pulling away to beat Gonzaga and claim their latest championship while capping a season overshadowed by events from both the near and distant past. He took two quick dribbles and threw a hard pass to Justin Jackson, who ran ahead of everyone toward the basket. Williams-Goss' last attempt at keeping the hopes alive for a title was blocked by Meeks. He's an impressive freshman with a nice future ahead of him.

Bulldogs coach Mark Few had no idea from his vantage point on the far end of the court that the jump-ball call was questionable. "I'm sitting over there, I'm not thinking the officials are doing a awful job". I'm so blessed that my family got to witness this.

But the Tar Heels stepped up that suffocating defense.

Jackson was 0-for-9 from beyond the arc but finished with 16 points, while Isaiah Hicks added 13. Overall, the Tar Heels actually shot a percentage point worse than they did in Saturday night's win over Oregon. They stifled any bit of flow that existed in the game and turned it into a review-driven free-throw contest. Both the Zags and UNC were in the bonus with 12 minutes to go in the second half.

He ended up being called for his fourth foul despite replay showing minimal contact.

Walker scores 29; Hornets overcome Westbrook's triple-double
LOS ANGELES - D'Angelo Russell scored 28 points to help Los Angeles end a four-game skid. However, the Thunder is the leading team when to compare with the Hornets .

"I'm not going to talk about refs", Karnowski said. "It was just a physical game".

Northwestern was a sentimental favorite after making its first NCAA Tournament and throwing a second-round scare into eventual finalist Gonzaga. The possession arrow pointed North Carolina's way, so the Tar Heels kept the ball and made a two-point basket with the extra possession to take a three-point lead. Replays and pictures, retweeted and reposted thousands of times on social media, showed Meeks' right hand touching out of bounds.

"I just want to thank everyone for supporting us", he said. "So that's tough. It's tough to hear".

"I mean, how many teams would take 37-2, league champs, national runner-up?"

For the Ducks, top players Dillon Brooks, Tyler Dorsey and Jordan Bell have decisions to make on whether to return — and that could determine whether OR can take another step after reaching an Elite Eight in 2016 and reaching this year's national semifinals.

"We broke the glass ceiling everybody said we couldn't get over", Mathews said.

For the sneaker lover, North Carolina provided plenty of eye candy on the court. "I had quite a few messages and one of them was from Michael, so I collected some money last night". "It is the best, worse game I think I've seen in a long time".
