North Carolina receives national championship rings

  Some former Tar Heels were in attendance as UNC received its national championship rings on Saturday.

Saturday was a day of celebration in Chapel Hill, N.C., as the members of the Tar Heels' 2017 men's basketball team received their national championship rings at halftime of North Carolina's football game against Louisville. The school's marching band formed the words "National Champions" on the field, as the defending national champions lined up side-by-side for the presentation.

North Carolina invited members of its 1957, 1982, 1993, 2005 and 2009 national championship teams – including Tyler Zeller, Melvin Scott and Marvin Williams – back to campus to present national championship rings to the players and coaches on the Tar Heels' 2017 team.
