More About This Title Tar Heel Triumph
Redemption. After falling to Villanova in the final seconds of the 2016 NCAA championship North Carolina’s goal heading into the 2016-17 season was clear. The Tar Heels’ win over Gonzaga in the 2017 NCAA championship game was the culmination of a basketball season no Tar Heels fan will ever forget. Led by upperclassmen Justin Jackson, Joel Berry II, Kennedy Meeks and Isaiah Hicks, Coach Roy Williams’ squad won the ACC regular season championships and earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. North Carolina then stormed past Texas Southern, Arkansas and Butler to set up an Elite Eight matchup with Kentucky, where Luke Maye’s game-winning jumper sent North Carolina back to the Final Four. In the national semifinal against Oregon, North Carolina survived a frenetic final minute to reach the championship game. Packed with expert analysis and stunning action photography from The News & Observer, Tar Heel Triumph: North Carolina’s Unforgettable 2017 Championship Season takes fans through the Tar Heels’ amazing journey, from a December loss to Kentucky to the final seconds in Arizona.
