The Jayhawks earned the celebration by making the biggest comeback in NCAA Men’s Tournament title game history.

After trailing by as many as 16 in the first half and facing a 15-point halftime deficit, a special second-half performance propelled Kansas to victory. The Jayhawks outscored the Tar Heels 47-29 in the final 20 minutes.

It was a balanced effort for the Jayhawks with five players scoring in double figures. David McCormack and Jalen Wilson led the way with 15 points each. Remy Martin had 14 points off the bench. Ochai Agbaji and Christian Braun each had 12 points. Braun added a team-high 12 rebounds and McCormack also had 10 boards.

The win helped KU claim their fourth men’s basketball national championship and the Jayhawks’ first March Madness title since 2008.
