2017 NCAA tournament: Bracket, scores, stats, records

Watch full game: North Carolina vs. Gonzaga for the 2017 national championship

The 2017 NCAA tournament concluded with North Carolina defeating Gonzaga for the national title in Glendale, Arizona.

The Tar Heels won their sixth national championship and third under coach Roy Williams. The Tar Heels cut down the nets one year after being walked off by Villanova on a buzzer-beater. Since seeding was introduced in 1979, the Tar Heels have won all of their championships as a No. 1 seed.

North Carolina made its 20th appearance at the Final Four, joined by first-timers in No. 1 seed Gonzaga and No. 7 seed South Carolina. Oregon, a 3-seed, returned to the Final Four for the first time since the inaugural NCAA tournament in 1939.

South Carolina was one of four teams seeded seventh or lower to reach the Sweet 16 (No. 7 Michigan, No. 8 Wisconsin and No. 11 Xavier).
