March Madness Moments: National Championship

For the third time in the past 13 years, and sixth time overall, Chapel Hill is celebrating a national championship.

The newly-crowned North Carolina Tar Heels returned home on Tuesday and were greeted by thousands of happy, cheering fans at a celebration at the Dean Smith Center.

A year after a heartbreaking loss to Kris Jenkins and Villanova in the 2016 championship game, the Tar Heels defeated Gonzaga 71-65 in on Monday in Glendale, Arizona for their first championship since 2009. They also won titles in 2005, 1993, 1983 and 1957.
