MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- There's a new NCAA basketball champion this afternoon.

In a thrilling finish, the Kansas Jayhawks defeated the North Carolina Tar Heels in a game featuring a pair of elite programs.

UNC missed a couple last-second three-pointers in the final seconds. 

The win is the largest comeback in national championship history. The Jayhawks were down by 15 at the half.

Milwaukee native and Kansas guard Ochai Agbaji was named Most Outstanding Player in the tournament.

"You know, it would be unbelievable to win at all, but to win in that way, that will be one that not too many people forget very soon," said Bill Self, Kansas head coach. 

In a sweet moment following the win, Agbaji was seen hugging his family after the Final 4 win.

This is the fourth national championship win in Kansas Jayhawks history.
