But there was one celebration fans may have missed.
After North Carolina’s last-chance shot, after the buzzer sounded to end the game, and after the crimson and blue confetti fell inside the Superdome, the Jayhawks headed back to the locker room.
That’s where the Jayhawks held their own, private celebration.
Everyone emptied the water bottles they held as they jumped around in elation.
David McCormack can be seen wearing the net around his neck that Coach Self gave him for his effort and clutch shots at the end of the National Championship game.
Self himself can be seen dancing along with his players.
The National Champion Jayhawks have at least two more celebrations ahead of them.
KU is holding a welcome home celebration for the team at Memorial Stadium Tuesday afternoon. There will also be a parade in Lawrence. Details on the parade will be announced soon.
