The UNC men’s basketball team beat Gonzaga last night to win the team’s sixth national title.
The game was played in Glendale, Arizona, but more than 9,000 Carolina fans watched from the Dean Smith Center on campus in Chapel Hill.
Students, faculty, alumni and fans crowded bars and restaurants along Franklin Street to watch the game. Others traveled from out-of-state to watch the game in the Dean Dome on campus.
And although there was nothing but excitement afterward, the crowd exuded a nervous energy through much of the game.
As the final seconds ticked off the clock, fans rushed the court. They jumped around. Hugged each other. Laughed, shouted, cried as UNC claimed victory in the title game.
