2022 national title game live stream: March Madness TV schedule, watch NCAA Tournament streaming on Monday

The 2022 Final Four and the 2021-22 college basketball season will come to a close with a possible all-time national championship game taking place Monday night with No. 1 seed Kansas vs. No. 8 seed North Carolina. The Jayhawks enter with confidence after a wire-to-wire 16-point win against No. 2 seed Villanova in one national semifinal, while the Tar Heels advanced thanks to an epic 81-77 win against No. 2 seed Duke, sending Mike Krzyzewski and the rival Blue Devils home in the first-ever NCAA Tournament meeting between the programs. 

The differences in how the two games played out is a big part of setting the stage for Monday night. By the time the ball is tipped will North Carolina have recharged from an emotionally exhausting win in the late game on Saturday? If not, Kansas may have an edge in that department not only playing in the early game but getting the result of a bench-clearing blowout. 

But you can’t focus on something as basic as rest when you have two programs who mean so much to the sport of college basketball. “Who’s tired” is a storyline that falls flat of honoring these two titans of the sport before they class on the biggest stage. 

North Carolina and Duke have combined for nine national championships (UNC with six, Kansas with three) and squared off in the Final Four four times, most recently in 2008 and as far back as 1957, when North Carolina beat Wilt Chamberlain and the Jayhawks 54-53 in triple overtime to win the national championship. The winner of the Final Four meetings in 2008 (Kansas) and 1993 (North Carolina) also claimed the title that season. 

So here we go, at the conclusion of a wild tournament that has delivered in almost every round, with two iconic brands represented by teams playing an extremely high level.
