2017 NCAA National Championship: North Carolina vs. Gonzaga

The road ends in Phoenix for the North Carolina Tar Heels and Gonzaga Bulldogs, one way or another in the 2017 NCAA National Championship.

Out of 351 schools on the Division I level, these are the last two teams standing. Tomorrow night, a new national champion will be crowned. For North Carolina, this is the end of a long journey that started a year ago with a crushing defeat against Villanova. UNC has faced and passed every test to get another chance at a championship. As for Gonzaga, what must have seemed like an impossible dream is 40 minutes from becoming reality.

This is a true battle of titans, and not just Przemek Karnowski and Kennedy Meeks. Gonzaga has been one of the best teams all season, and they meet one of the premier programs in the sport.
