It wasn't pretty, but the North Carolina Tar Heels won their sixth title on Monday night, April 3, in Glendale by defeating Gonzaga 71-65 at University of Phoenix Stadium. North Carolina was led to victory by Joel Berry II, who scored 22 points on a night when neither team shot the ball well. Photos by Jim Louvau.
