The Chirp: NCAA Championship Edition

March. Madness. With seconds left, it seemed like North Carolina’s title dreams were revived by a 3-pointer from senior Marcus Paige to tie the game, but Villanova’s Kris Jenkins answered with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer of his own and the Wildcats went on to win 77-74 for their first title in 31 years.

The Chirp is here for everything on social media you may have missed during Monday’s NCAA Championship game, from classic referee criticism to the never-ending Crying Jordan memes.
