RALEIGH (WTVD) — Gov. Roy Cooper welcomed the UNC men’s basketball team to the Governor’s Mansion on Wednesday to celebrate the Tar Heels’ sixth national title.
On April 3, UNC beat Gonzaga 71-65 to win the National Championship. Cooper said a friend in the audience asked him if he planned to go to the Final Four last month.
“I said, ‘You do know every Final Four I’ve been to, we lost the first game,'” Cooper shared. “He said, ‘You don’t really need to go to the Final Four.'”
Coach Roy Williams jokingly thanked that friend at the Governor’s Mansion.
