Kansas guard Christian Braun (2) and Kansas forward KJ Adams (24) defend a final shot from North Carolina guard Caleb Love (2) that missed giving the Jayhawks a 72-69 win over the Tar Heels in the NCAA National Championship game on Monday, April 4, 2022 at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans.
A lot has been made in the past couple of months about then-freshman KJ Adams being on the floor for that final miss by North Carolina in the 2022 national title game.
