Late surge gives Tar Heels title

But with Jackson struggling with his shot and the Tar Heels getting little inside Monday night, Berry responded in a big way. This was the culmination of four long years that started under the beating August sun in Chapel Hill in the summer of 2013. Replays and pictures, retweeted and reposted thousands of times on social media, showed Meeks' right hand touching out of bounds.

The 12-minute run is the grueling conditioning test Williams annually holds on the first day of classes. "When you work hard for it, you just have to make it happen".

Back then, Meeks was pushing 300 pounds.

"I said this one time before, in 2005", Williams said. "And that's said tongue in cheek". "I don't think I should be mentioned in the same sentence with him".

"They made some big plays down the stretch, but it could very well be us out there celebrating right now", Gonzaga forward Johnathan Williams said.

A big question is whether Collins will return for his sophomore year. By then, he was down to 270 pounds and playing with new confidence. Berry was the team's toughest player and the team's floor leader, while Meeks and Hicks became a reliable interior scoring-and-rebounding tandem. For the House of Moonves, the victory was even greater, with 22.99 million viewers tuning in, according to Nielsen data.

"But the games are going to be played". After UNC made a basket, Gonzaga was still alive, down by three with under 30 seconds to go.

While the performance was far from their best, the Tar Heels simply did enough to erase some demons they carried with them over the past 365 days. With less than 2 minutes left, they had the lead in the national title game. And Justin seemed like he was taking forever to just run down court.

Hoffman leads Masters as injury forces Johnson's withdrawal
Charley Hoffman has seen his opening-round Masters lead cut to just one shot midway through the second round at Augusta National. In fact, he birdied all four par threes, a sharp contrast to his nine over on those holes in his previous three appearances.

"Joel's an extremely tough guy", senior Nate Britt said. "I don't think any of us think we played our absolute best game".

"I'm not going to talk about refs", Karnowski said. "I felt like when I was out there I was doing everything I can". Fouled Out-Collins. Rebounds-Gonzaga 44 (Tillie, Karnowski, Williams-Goss 9), North Carolina 46 (Meeks 10). Meeks, fresh off his 25-point, 14-rebound performance against OR in the Final Four, had just four points and five boards and Hicks' struggles continued, as he went 1-for-5 in the half, but getting the Gonzaga bigs out of the game is what opened up the offensive glass and allowed UNC to get back into the game.

The final push came from UNC. He spent 15 seasons there but never won a championship.

Smith, who died two years ago at the age of 83, is one of the most revered figures in college sports.

Other players might not have responded to being constantly pushed by their head coach.

It's OK, Carolina, you can open your eyes.

North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams hedged his bets earlier this week when asked if he would accept an invitation to the White House should his team win the national championship by saying that he didn't want to jinx his team's chances by taking about it.
