So is there anyone out there collecting big money from their March Madness bracket? The Finals matchup of the 79th NCAA Tournament was decided this past Saturday after North Carolina defeated Oregon in a tight game 77-76, and Gonzaga won over South Carolina 77-73.

In the big championship game two number one seeds went to battle. North Carolina came in looking to avenge their heartbreaking loss in the finals last year to Villanova at the final buzzer, Gonzaga came in to prove themselves in their first ever national finals game in the school history.

By the end of the first half Gonzaga was up 35-32 over North Carolina but the Tar Heels weren’t ready to give up yet, they went 6-0 run to regain the lead coming into the second half of the game. The second half was full of twist and excitement with many lead changes.

Ultimately behind the MVP of the game Joel Berry II who had 22 points and Justin Jackson who had 16 the North Carolina Tar Heels were able to redeem themselves from last years finals loss and win over Gonzaga 71-65 securing the school’s 6th national championship!
