Kansas Rallies, Beats North Carolina 72-69 To Win NCAA Title – Now Enjoy “One Shining Moment”

It was a great tournament and a great finish! Talk about a comeback…

The Kansas Jayhawks are bringing home their fourth NCAA men’s basketball title thanks to a second-half surge that erased a 16-point deficit and eventually overtook North Carolina 72-69 Monday night in New Orleans. It was the largest comeback in national championship history.

David McCormack scored the go-ahead bucket with 1:21 left, then another at the 22-second mark to put the Jayhawks ahead by three. North Carolina missed its final four shots.

But more importantly, congratulations to our Morning Show bracket winner, Jeffrey Cunningham! Well done.

And of course, it’s not a tournament if you don’t hear “One Shining Moment” at the end of it all. So, enjoy the video above.
