NCAA Championship Game Live: The 2022 men’s college basketball championship will feature the No. 8 seeded North Carolina Tar Heels against the No. 1 seeded Kansas Jayhawks on Monday night in Ner Orleans.
UNC spoiled the final moment of coach Mike Krzyzewski’s career, as the Tar Heels took down the hated Duke Blue Devils in the Final Four to advance to the title game. Kansas, meanwhile, thoroughly upended Villanova behind the play of star guard Ochai Agbaji.
The Tar Heels will be competing for their seventh national championship, while the Jayhawks are in search of their fourth. Kansas and North Carolina will meet in the championship game for the first time since 1957, a triple-overtime classic won by the Tar Heels 54-53 over Wilt Chamberlain and the Jayhawks.
Tipoff is set for 9:20 p.m. ET from the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans. Jim Nantz (play-by-play), Grant Hill (analyst), Bill Raftery (analyst), Tracy Wolfson (sideline reporter) and Gene Steratore (rules analyst) will handle broadcasting duties.
The men’s championship game will air on TBS. Live streaming is available on TBS.com and the TBS app and FuboTV. The game can also be watched at March Madness Live on the NCAA website.
Saint Peter’s, Coach K final hoorah and Brady Manek’s beard were just three of the dominant storylines of the 2022 NCAA Tournament, but there’s still one more chapter to be written on Monday night, as UNC and Kansas are the last two teams standing from the field of 68.
The Tar Heels aren’t your typical No. 8 seed: Hubert Davis had UNC humming heading into March Madness, leading to a romp through the East region and an appearance in the national championship game. The Tar Heels sent Mike Krzyzewski a rude retirement gift, eliminating their hated rival Blue Devils in the Final Four.
They face a tough task in the Kansas Jayhawks, who have made pretty easy work of their side of the bracket in 2022: The No. 1-seeded Jayhawks dispatched the Villanova Wildcats in the Final Four with relative ease, punching their ticket to the championship game for the first time since 2012.
It’s the unfortunate end of the 2022 NCAA Tournament. Here’s how you can catch the game on your preferred live-streaming services.
