March Madness 2016 finale: North Carolina vs. Villanova

We've finally reached the one shining moment that heralds the end of the college basketball season. North Carolina will take on Villanova at 9:00 eastern on TBS to conclude a tournament that featured fewer than usual big upsets, a lot of blowout games in the late rounds, and now a finale featuring two traditional college powers. Okay, maybe Villanova doesn't count as a traditional power. But they're certainly closer to one than Georgia, and it's all relative after all.

The Tar Heels are a slight favorite, which is fine with me since I picked them to win the darn thing. When your bracket is a smoking pile of rubble, you take your wins where you can find them.
