North Carolina’s MVP
In the 2017 NCAA championship game, the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Kansas Jayhawks fought for the title. Each team had players that stood out, but in the end, it was North Carolina’s Justin Jackson that took home the MVP honors.
Jackson, a 6’8″ forward from Tomball, Texas, scored 22 points and had 2 assists in the game. He also shot 50% from three-point range, helping to lead his team to a 71-65 victory. For his stellar performance, Jackson was awarded the Final Four Most Outstanding Player award.
This was not Jackson’s only accomplishment during his time at North Carolina. He was also named the ACC Player of the Year in 2017 and finished his college career as the Tar Heels’ fourth all-time leading scorer with 1,767 points. Jackson now plays for the Sacramento Kings in the NBA.
In the end, the Jayhawks’ more balanced and battle-tested roster was too much for the Tar Heels. UNC never led in the second half and was eventually blown out by 14 points. Amidst all of this, one player stood out: Kansas’ Devonte’ Graham.
The 6’2″ point guard was spectacular, finishing with 27 points on 50% shooting, 7 assists, and 5 rebounds. He also hit four three-pointers, including this dagger late in the game to put Kansas up by double digits.
Graham has been excellent all season long, but this performance was on another level. He took over the game when it mattered most and led his team to a victory against a tough opponent. For his efforts, Devonte’ Graham is our MVP of the game.
