Kansas Jayhawks 2008 NCAA National Champs!!

For those that wanted a championship game full of excitement of historical proportion, they were not disappointed.

Exactly 20 years ago, the Kansas team led by Danny Manning who is now the assistant coach at Kansas won the championship. His coach at the time Larry Brown along with 3 other former Kansas coaches watched from the stands as the Jayhawks gave Bill his first championship title.

UNC coach Roy Williams and former Kansas coach wore a Jayhawk on his shirt as he cheered on the team.
Kansas trailed by three with only seconds remaining. With 2.1 seconds left in the game Mario Chalmers put up a 3 point shot to send the Jayhawks into overtime. Kansas dominated in overtime and took the championship 75-68.

I fell asleep until the end of the game. I saw the best part I guess.

Now, bring on the Cardinals!
