North Carolina was the favorite, but sports have some incredible stories. Kansas came from behind against the NCAA’s toughest opponent. And took a historic title for youth basketball.

Kansas pulled off, against all odds, the greatest comeback in NCAA national championship history. The feat was accomplished and in spectacular fashion.

Led by David McCormack and Remy Martin, Kansas defeated the favorites, North Carolina, 72-69. Because all work pays off.

The road to the crown was not easy: the Jayhawks were down 40-25 at halftime. In addition, Kansas was on a stage that brought back bad memories. It was in the same place where they fell more than a decade ago to Kentucky.

But fate had another story in store for them. Kansas went on a favorable point streak, going on a 31-10 run in the opening minutes of the second half. And they quickly managed to take the lead that set up a legendary finish.

McCormick was in charge of the go-ahead basket. And the Jayhawks managed to motivate themselves to block Caleb Love, the rebound they couldn’t recover and Armando Bacot attempted a dunk. But when he hit the floor he hurt his foot, leaving him out of the game.

A final that will remain in history

The drama appeared in those last seconds. When a new attempt by McComarck put them with a three-point lead by beating Brady Manek. That only saw the Kansas player pass right to the basketball.

Carolina had a chance to tie the game. But he missed his last four attempts, including a Love shot at the buzzer that gave the Jayhawks the win.

McCormack and Jalen Wilson led Kansas University with 15 points each. Although it was also Christian Braun who scored 10 of his 12 in the second half.

Bacot’s 15 points and 15 assists made him the first player with double-doubles in all six tournament games. In conclusion, the North Carolina player finished with 31 double-doubles. But all that was not enough to avoid defeat.

With this, Kansas achieved its fourth national title and the second for coach Bill Self. The comeback left behind those recorded by Kentucky in 1988. When they rallied from a 10-point deficit against Utah. And Chicago’s comeback over Cincinnati from a 15-point deficit in 1963.
