Kansas wins 4th national championship with second-half comeback against UNC

The Kansas Jayhawks erased a fifteen point halftime deficit to rally and beat the North Carolina Tar Heels 72-69 to claim KU’s fourth national championship.

Carolina surged in the first half to a 40-25 halftime lead.  But Kansas displayed the urgency it needed in the second half, outscoring UNC 47-29 in the frame.

Bill Self wins his second national championship with the Jayhawks, to pair with his 2008 title when the Jayhawks beat Derrick Rose and Memphis in a classic national championship game.
