What Is the Kansas vs. UNC Game? Date, Time, Location
The 2022 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship game takes place tonight, Monday, April 4 live from the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans.
Tip off is at 9:20 p.m. ET / 6:20 p.m. PT with the teams set to play two, 20-minute halves that are standard of college basketball games. The overtime period is five minutes long if needed, and is repeated until there is a winner.
Two storied programs steeped in tradition will battle for the 2022 NCAA Tournament championship Monday, as No. 1 seed Kansas and No. 8 seed North Carolina take the court at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans in the final college basketball game of the 2021-22 season. A victory would bring UNC's seventh national title, while a win by Kansas would be the Jayhawks' fourth national title.
Both are among the sport's blue-blood programs, but they took decidedly different paths to reach this point. The No. 1 seed Jayhawks shared the Big 12 regular season title, won the Big 12 Tournament and had a favorable path as the top team in the Midwest Region of the NCAA Tournament bracket. KU is led by senior wing Ochai Agbaji and has one of the game's ultimate wild cards coming off the bench in Arizona State transfer Remy Martin at point guard.
North Carolina struggled during non conference play, was on the NCAA Tournament bubble for most of the ACC season and lost in the semifinals of the conference tournament. But the Tar Heels have hit their stride at the right time to become the third No 8 seed to reach a national title game. Their star tends to be a different player each night, but sophomore guard Caleb Love has been shining bright as of latent was particularly clutch in Saturday's night's Final Four win over Duke.
With both teams firing on all cylinders offensively and the sport's ultimate prize on the line, Monday's title game figures to be a thriller.
The Kansas Jayhawks and the North Carolina Tar Heels square off on Monday evening in the final of the 2022 NCAA Tournament. Tip-off at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans is set for 9:20 p.m. ET.
