Tar Heel trophy!!

We had the pleasure of having the 2009 NCAA men's basketball championship trophy in our studio today. Of course, it's now a possession of UNC after the Tar Heel victory Monday night.

If you're wondering why it doesn't look like the one you saw on Monday night that's because it's not the same trophy. The one players were holding is the NCAA trophy. This trophy you see here is the one for finishing #1 in the polls essentially. The 2005 trophy sits in Roy Williams office. It's made of Waterford crystal and will end up somewhere in the Dean Dome. Charlie Green from the National Association of Basketball Coaches is touring with the trophy this weekend. In fact you can get your picture taken with it this weekend at a couple different Verizon stores. Check out our website for specific details.

It was pretty cool to see and get my picture taken since I'm a huge college basketball fan too!
