Nova-UNC: The national title game college basketball needs

This year has been a dramatic one for college basketball, and the emotions have all been very real — the elation attached to a No. 1 ranking, the stabbing, dagger-like pain brought on by a buzzer-beater, the duality of a major blowout and the responsibility that comes with being the last two teams left standing. A Villanova-North Carolina national championship game isn’t what...

North Carolina schools have won consecutive national championships every decade since the ’80’s

At least if North Carolina ends up cutting down the nets instead of Villanova Monday that will be the case. Starting in North Carolina winning in 1982 (with one Michael Jordan) and North Carolina State following with a championship of their own in’83, each decade has had North Carolina universities winning back-to-back championships.
