With No. 1 North Carolina beating No. 10 Syracuse 83-66, the Tar Heels clinched a spot in Monday’s title game opposite No. 2 Villanova. While the Tar Heels are still one win away from the program’s sixth national title, that didn’t keep some fans back in Chapel Hill from spilling out onto Franklin Street to celebrate Saturday’s victory.

If they managed to fill up part of the street after Saturday, imagine how much fun they’ll have in Chapel Hill if North Carolina can beat Villanova on Monday.
