North Carolina Has At Least One Starter From Every Past Title Team At Tonight's National Championship Game

North Carolina's men's basketball program has won five national championships. The Tar Heels will be looking to add a sixth tonight. 

As Roy Williams' squad attempts to hang banner No. 6 against Villanova, it'll have the support of all of the program's past title teams. 

According to Andrew Carter of The News & Observer, there is at least one former player from each of UNC's championship teams (1957, '82, '93, 2005, '09) in attendance at NRG Stadium in Houston tonight.

That's quite a list and it's not even a complete one. There will surely be more former Tar Heels watching their alma mater play tonight. 

North Carolina and Villanova are set to tip off at 9:19 p.m. E.T. on TBS.
