It was a game that wasn’t close from the start.
The Michigan State Spartans fell to the North Carolina Tar Heels 89-72 on Monday night in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship game. This is North Carolina’s fifth men’s basketball championship.
The Tar Heels ran up an amazing 55 points in the first half of the game. In addition to incredible shooting accuracy, they showed a knack for being in the right place at the right time, controlling rebounds and managing a swift transition game, which had the Spartans on their heels (natch) all night.
Our Spartans had an amazing run this year and were simply overpowered by a more mature, poised and athletic team.
