UNC Basketball Twitter’s 3-word tweet after losing the national championship is heartbreaking

After squandering a 16-point lead in a loss to Kansas, UNC Basketball Twitter had a brief but painful message regarding the loss.

It seemed over and as if another banner was headed for Chapel Hill. The North Carolina Tar Heels went up 16 points at one point in the first half and 15 points at halftime.

Then UNC lost a 16-point lead over Kansas, the largest lost lead in a national title game of all time. It’s the kind of loss that doesn’t leave you.

After last summer, UNC’s basketball Twitter summed it up perfectly.

Everything that could go wrong went wrong in the second half. After a first half that had everything clicking on all cylinders, the Tar Heels stuttered in the second half, eerily similar to when they gambled away a 25-point lead over Baylor earlier in the tournament, but only in overtime narrowly escaped. It wasn’t to be this time.

UNC Basketball Twitter had the right reaction to the Tar Heels collapse against the Jayhawks

It’s easy to say that the semifinal win over Duke would be considered the national championship for North Carolina and how they ended Coach K’s tenure in college basketball. But that was still a semi-final game; This was the real national title game, and Kansas now has its first title since 2008.

Everything went so well. Caleb Love and Brady Manek took control and the Tar Heels lineup made shots, blocked shots and drove with emotion. The second half proved to be a different story as UNC couldn’t hold their own against David McCormack, Christian Braun and the rest of the Jayhawks’ arsenal. Losing Armando Bacot in the final seconds didn’t help either.

It’s a bittersweet end to a great Tar Heels season. They may have ended Coach K’s run in college basketball and advanced to the national championship as an 8-seed.

That won’t make the loss to Kansas any less painful, though.
