Internet Reacts to UNC Beating Gonzaga in NCAA Tournament Finals (TWEETS)
One year after losing a heartbreaker at the buzzer to Villanova in the NCAA Tournament Finals, the North Carolina Tar Heels got some redemption by beating the Gonzaga Bulldogs in a close contest in this year’s final.
It came down to the wire, but UNC hit some timely shots and they got a crucial block (and a controversial rebound) from senior forward Kennedy Meeks down the stretch to help them seal their sixth NCAA Tournament championship.
Here’s a look at how social media reacted to the Tar Heel’s big victory:
