NCAA Championship Game: The North Carolina vs Kansas live stream is tonight, and it has the Tar Heels looking to keep the good times coming after bouncing their rival Duke in the Final Four. Standing in their way is a Jayhawks team that is looking to this March Madness live stream to make some history of their own.
North Carolina (29-9) is going for their school’s seventh national championship. Despite their history they have been an underdog this year. They would have been the Cinderella story of the tournament had it not been for 15-seed Saint Peter’s run. With a first-year head coach in Hubert Davis and not one projected first round pick in June’s NBA draft, the Tar Heels made it to this title game as one of the very few 8-seeds to ever do so.
The Tar Heels have continued their advance thanks to the clutch play of junior Armando Bacot, sophomore Caleb Love, senior Brady Manek and sophomore R.J. Davis. Each one of these players have stepped in the clutch through the season and the tournament.
Love is coming off yet another outstanding performance in the tournament. After taking UCLA for 30 points in the Sweet 16, he dropped 28 on the Blue Devils in UNC’s 81-77 Final Four victory Saturday night.
Kansas (30-8) is playing for the school’s fourth national title overall and second under head coach Bill Self. The Jayhawks enter this matchup after beating Villanova 81-65 in the final four. Senior big-man David McCormick led the way against Nova with 25 points and 9 rebounds while senior guard Ochai Agbaji continued his tear in the tournament, dropping in 21 points.
This is the first time since 1957 that these two blue-blood schools are meeting in the national title game. Lennie Rosenbluth’s Tar Heels edged Wilt Chamberlain’s Jayhawks, 54-53 in triple overtime that year.
Kansas is now a 4-point favorite against North Carolina. The over/under is 151. The game is being played at New Orleans, Louisiana’s Caesars Superdome.
