Dick Vitale’s first tweet after Kansas won the national title was awesome, baby!

Dick Vitale had the perfect response to Kansas winning the national championship over UNC: “Lawrence, Kansas is party town USA BABY!”

Hall of Fame analyst Dick Vitale always seems to find the most exciting way to express himself.

He pulled that off in text on Monday night after Kansas pulled off a thrilling comeback over UNC to win the national title.

As the Jayhawks celebrated their triumph, Vitale jumped on Twitter to tip his hat to them.

Dick Vitale had the perfect tweet for Kansas’ national championship

“A tip of the hat to @KUHoops for a gutty comeback (15 down at half)to win the 2022 @MarchMadnessMBB NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP over an outstanding @UNC_Basketball five . Yes Lawrence , Kansas is party town USA BABY !”

That wasn’t the only thing Vitale had to say about the comeback. He broke it down for the folks at home.

“@KUHoops completed the greatest comeback in the history of a National Championship due to CHRISTIAN BRAUN scoring in a 30-10 run after half to give them the lead. Than REMY MARTIN came up big with 2 3’s when @UNC_Basketball regrouped. Finally DAVID McCORMACK with 2 fab plays .”

Even though they opened the game up 9-0, Kansas found themselves deep in a hole by the end of the first half. They trailed North Carolina, 40-25, at halftime after going several minutes without scoring.

They responded in the second half, chipping away at the Tar Heels’ lead until they took the lead on a Remy Martin three-pointer with 10 minutes to go.

They held onto that lead until Brady Manek hit a shot to pull ahead 69-68 with 1:41 remaining. Again the Jayhawks responded and scored the last four points of the game to lock in the 72-69 victory.
