UNC vs Kansas: Live stream, start time, TV, how to watch NCAA men’s championship Final
UNC vs Kansas: The 2022 men’s college basketball championship will feature the No. 8 seeded North Carolina Tar Heels against the No. 1 seeded Kansas Jayhawks on Monday night in New Orleans.
UNC spoiled the final moment of coach Mike Krzyzewski’s career, as the Tar Heels took down the hated Duke Blue Devils in the Final Four to advance to the title game. Kansas, meanwhile, thoroughly upended Villanova behind the play of star guard Ochai Agbaji.
The Tar Heels will be competing for their seventh national championship, while the Jayhawks are in search of their fourth. Kansas and North Carolina will meet in the championship game for the first time since 1957, a triple-overtime classic won by the Tar Heels 54-53 over Wilt Chamberlain and the Jayhawks.

Kansas vs. North Carolina: Predictions
Kansas looked to be in top form Saturday as it not just ousted — but trounced — No. 2 seed Villanova in a dominant showing. Ochai Agbaji was at the peak of his powers, David McCormack owned the paint, and the Jayhawks strutted their way to the national final. UNC, on the other hand, is coming off perhaps the most emotional win of any team in Final Four history after knocking off Duke and ending Coach K’s historic career. Will the Tar Heels be able to keep that momentum going on a short turnaround? I think they’ll be up for the moment to keep this one relatively close, but it’s a tall order to keep it within the 4.5 against this KU team. I’m laying the number. Kyle Boone’s pick: Kansas -4.5
