Last night's NCAA Championship game wasn't much of a battle, with North Carolina jumping out to an early lead and never looking back. Holding a 55-34 halftime lead, the Tar Heals coasted through the second half to defeat the Michigan St. Spartans 89-72 at Ford Field in Detroit to win the school's fifth title.

Along with the crowning of UNC as National Champions, we at Chicagoist crown a champion as well. J. ALFIERI's MACHOUNO007 entry beat 105 other competitors to take the title in the Chicagoist Tournament Challenge. He scored 1670 points, which placed his entry in the 99.9th percentile of all entries in's Tournament challenge. Congrats! Email me at to get the ball rolling on claiming your prize.
