"Kansas uses its historic rally to claim a fourth men's NCAA basketball title"

..................................................................

"Kansas pulled off the biggest comeback in men’s national championship game history to beat North Carolina, 72-69, and win the 2022 NCAA tournament."

"It was the largest comeback in national championship history, surpassing the 1963 title game when Loyola overcame a 15-point deficit to beat Cincinnati at the buzzer, 60-58."

"The Jayhawks were down by 15 at halftime and trailed at 16 at one point in the first half."

..................................................................

"The 16-point deficit breaks a record held by Loyola Chicago after the Ramblers came back from a 15-point deficit to win the national title."

"And until Monday night, the biggest halftime deficit ever turned around in a national title game was 10 when Kentucky came back to beat Utah."

"David McCormack's basket with 22 seconds left put the Jayhawks up by three after North Carolina's Armando Bacot turned his right ankle and had to limp off the court with less than a minute left."

"Kansas didn't take long to erase North Carolina's lead in the second half. The Jayhawks quickly got the deficit down to single digits within the first 2:30 of the half"

"A Remy Martin three put Kansas up 53-50 with 10:20 to go and then Jalen Wilson got an and-one to extend the lead to six just 12 seconds later."

"North Carolina didn’t go away. The Tar Heels tied the game at 57-57 before a three by Martin put Kansas back in front."

"UNC got the game tied at 65-65 with less than four minutes to go before Martin hit another go-ahead three."

"UNC then took a one-point lead with less than two minutes to go before McCormack put Kansas up for good."

"The title is Kansas' second under coach Bill Self."

..................................................................

"The first came in 2008 in a game that also goes down in March Madness lore thanks to Mario Chalmers' three with two seconds left to send Kansas into overtime with Memphis."

"That title established Self as one of the elite coaches in college basketball"
