Shining Moments

  • If you made a list of the 10 biggest/most memorable highlights in NCAA tournament history, this one lays claim to the most infamous. Chris Webber calling the timeout Michigan didnít have with 11 seconds left, trailing by two, sealed Dean Smithís second national championship.
  • For the second time in four tournaments a 15 beats a two. This time, itís Santa Clara offing Arizona, 64-61. The Broncos are led by a point guard named Steve Nash.
  • For the first time in tournament history, three No. 1 seeds reach the Final Four.
  • No. 12 George Washington plays the role of Cinderella, beating New Mexico and then No. 13 Southern U to reach the Sweet 16.
