After losing on a buzzer beater last year, fans were able to let loose and celebrate when the Tar Heels won the National Championship Monday night.
Roughly 10,000 fans, students and alumni gathered in the Smith Center Monday night to cheer on the Tar Heels. (To put that in perspective, Gonzaga’s basketball arena only holds 6,000 fans.)
When Kennedy Meeks blocked Nigel Williams-Goss in the closing seconds, fans poured onto the floor. After waiting an entire year, fans were able to let loose and celebrate.
