March Madness has been going on for a little under a month now and the finals concluded Monday with a heated game between Kansas and North Carolina. North Carolina was looking strong in the first half, putting up 40 against Kansas. Kansas had only put up 25 points by half. Kansas fired back in the second half putting up 47 points, while North Carolina couldn’t keep the pace and put up 29. With little time left at the end of the game, Kansas had a 3 point lead and UNC had multiple chances to tie the game, however, they couldn’t get a good shot off and lost the game, giving Kansas their 4th NCAA title.  Kansas set a record for a comeback from the largest deficit and the largest comeback from a deficit at halftime in NCAA Tournament Championship history. North Carolina also set a record by scoring a double-double in all six games of the tournament.
