A week ago, the North Carolina Tar Heels won their fifth NCAA championship. This was done in a dominant fashion against the Spartans, who let their turnovers catch up with them.
Because of Michigan State's errors, the Tar Heels were able to easily settle into a 89-72 win. Factored along with that was North Carolina's consistency and strong start to the game. In all truth, Roy Williams' squad had the game notched by halftime, if not sooner.
The Tar Heels had an excellent game while nothing seemed to click for Tom Izzo's Spartans.
If anyone tuned into last week's title game expecting a classic similar to last year's overtime thriller, they were disappointed. The game gave Roy Williams his second championship, and Tyler Hansbrough his first as a player, but other than deserved achievements, nothing special happened.
The Tar Heels were clearly the better team all the way through. In the past, though, we have seen games that made our eyes widen with excitement. Older fans relish the great moments that the NCAA has had due to great NCAA championship games.
Younger fans such as ourselves can only imagine what it was like to witness great moments in NCAA history. Today, I hope to try and give the best perspective possible.
In this slide show, there is a list of ten great NCAA championship games, in order from my opinion. Along with that, there are five honorable mentions that deserved recognition, and I wasn't going to ignore those great games.
All of these games deserved recognition. If anyone is to disagree, then they can write whatever they believe is fine. It's OK to have an opinion that is different from others.
Still, I hope that this can be a solid, accurate verdict on the ten greatest NCAA title games in history.
