Kansas Beats Memphis For The NCAA Championship Title

Kansas has won its third national championship in men's basketball, beating Memphis 75-68 in overtime. It's the third NCAA title for the Jayhawks, and their first since 1988.

Mario Chalmers extended the game by draining an off-balance
3-pointer with 2.1 seconds left before the Jayhawks scored the
first six points of OT. Chalmers' tying basket capped a 12-3 run
for Kansas after the Tigers led 60-51 with just over 2 minutes

Darrell Arthur had a team-high 20 points for the Jayhawks, while
Chalmers added 18. Tigers star Chris Douglas-Roberts led all
scorers with 22 points but missed three straight free throws in the
final 1:15 of regulation.
