Here is my 2022 College Basketball National Championship Preview:

1.Kansas vs. 8.North Carolina
Caesar’s Superdome (New Orleans,LA)
April 4, 9:20 PM ET, TBS
Kansas defeated Villanova in the first Final Four semifinal of Saturday night by holding the lead throughout the entire game. First team All-American wing Ochai Agbaji (21 points, 2 rebounds) and forward David McCormack (25 points, 9 rebounds) propelled Kansas to the championship game. To beat North Carolina, more offensive production from guard Remy Martin, guard Christian Braun, wing Jalen Wilson, and forward Mitch Lightfoot to beat the Tar Heels. Kansas coach Bill Self will look to defeat first year North Carolina coach Hubert Davis and his Tar Heels. North Carolina defeated Duke 81-77, which was the first meeting between the two rivals in the tournament of all time and ended Mike Krzyewski’s historic career. In the 100th battle between Coach K’s Blue Devils and the Tar Heels, North Carolina evened the series at 50 in that span with guards Caleb Love scoring 28 points and RJ Davis scoring 16 points. Big man Armando Bacot scored 11 points and added 21 rebounds for the Tar Heels. He will need more offensive production if the Heels were to beat Kansas. The defensive match ups chosen by each coach are going to be key. Talented defensive wing North Carolina wing Leaky Black will likely be assigned Ochai Agbaji, Armando Bacot will likely be on David McCormack, and the rest will be up to the positional assignments. The other huge factor is the lack of North Carolina bench play. Kansas’ bench is definitely superior but the hot shooting of North Carolina forward Brady Manek has countered most opposing benches in the NCAA Tournament thus far.

This game will be huge for either program with a win. I guess it was the Roy Williams retirement party the entire time, not Coach K, as the two programs Coach Williams led will face off in the championship tomorrow night. Projected Score: North Carolina 76, Kansas 73
