LOOK: Michael Jordan, 50+ former UNC players at NCAA championship

As North Carolina pushes for its sixth NCAA Tournament title in the national championship game against Villanova, representatives from all five previous title teams were in NRG Stadium in Houston to root on the Tar Heels.

Among the former UNC players in attendance was the hero of the 1982 championship game against Georgetown, Michael Jordan. Jordan strolled in just before tip-off, and now we’ve got the man himself on the scene should any popular sports internet memes begin to circulate.

According to WRAL’s Joe Ovies and Wes Durham, of the ACC Network and currently on UNC’s Team Stream telecast, there are 54 former players in attendance. Adam Lucas of GoHeels.com said 51 tickets were allotted for former players, but either way we’ve got the 1957, 1982, 1993, 2005 and 2009 teams represented in the group of 50+ players.
