The Fighting Illini, with only one season loss in their path and determined to bring home Illinois' first title championship, took on the Tar Heels of North Carolina, who were hoping to add to the storied program's legacy. North Carolina's Sean May scored 18 of his 26 total points in the second half, while Illinois' Deron Williams and Luther Head put on a 3-point shooting display. The Illini fought back to overcome a 15 point second half deficit when Head's 3-pointer tied the game at 70-70 with only 2:39 to go. North Carolina regained the lead when Marvin Williams tipped in a lay-up attempt by Rashad McCants with 1:39 left, and kept it until the end. North Carolina defeated Illinois 75-70, winning its fourth NCAA championship and Coach Roy Williams' first title. Sean May's 26 total points mirrored his father Scott May's 26 points in leading Indiana to the 1976 national title. And just like his father, Sean May was named Most Outstanding Player for the tournament. This DVD collectible is the perfect gift for the UNC enthusiast in your life! Running time is approximately 80 minutes.
