LOOK: North Carolina raises 2017 national champion banner to the rafters at Dean Smith Center

North Carolina received good news from the NCAA on Friday as it was determined they didn’t violate any academic rules in regards to its course offerings and extra help to student-athletes.

Later on Friday night, that good news was capped off as the 2016-17 Tar Heels men’s basketball team saw their national championship banner go up into the rafters at the Dean Smith Center.

The banner was unveiled during the 15th annual Late Night with Roy event that commemorates the beginning of each new season in Chapel Hill.

North Carolina defeated Gonzaga last season to capture the program’s sixth national title.
