WATCH: UNC Wins 2017 NCAA Championship Against Gonzaga

The North Carolina Tar Heels are NCAA Champions once again.

After losing a heartbreaker to Villanova last season, UNC returned to the title game and this time got it done down the stretch. The Tar Heels pulled off the victory against Gonzaga, 71-65.

Watch the closing moments of the game in the video above.

North Carolina was led down the stretch by junior guard Joel Berry II’s game-high 22 points. He also had 6 assists and 3 rebounds in the win.

It’s head coach Roy Williams’ third time winning a national title, and he was understandably proud of his team after the final buzzer.

UNC also got 16 points out of junior Justin Jackson and 13 points, 9 rebounds from senior Isaiah Hicks.

With confetti streaming overhead, the Tar Heels jubilantly celebrated bringing the Division I championship trophy back to Chapel Hill.
