Congratulations to Roy Williams and North Carolina for winning the 2005 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. It was an exciting tournament with lots of close finishes, and the final game was just as exciting as any of them. Illinois came back from being behind 15 points to tie, but in the end, Sean May could not be stopped inside and Raymond Felton made a key steal down the stretch to save the win. Luther Head had a chance to tie with ten seconds left, but his shot was off, and it gave Roy Williams his first NCAA Championship in his second year at UNC. I can’t stand the Tar Heels, but they had a good team and played a great game.
In our NCAA Tournament Challenge, team pwnt won the whole thing, despite picking UNC to lose to Illinois in the chapionship.
UPDATE: I wrote this article before Yahoo updated the scores, congratulations actually goes to ProphetsOfRage. Sorry for the mixup. The final winning bracket is available after the jump. Thanks for playing, and we’ll do the same next year.
