2019 NCAA tournament: Bracket, scores, stats, records

Watch full game: Virginia wins 2019 National Championship vs. Texas Tech

The 2019 NCAA tournament was the ninth year that college basketball's postseason consisted of 68 teams. Eight teams played the First Four in Dayton before the 64-team bracket was finalized.

In 2019, Virginia won its first national championship in program history. The Cavaliers returned to the Final Four for the first time since 1984 — a year before the NCAA adopted the 64-team field. The win also serves as a reversal from the year prior, when UVA became the first No. 1 seed to lose in the Round of 64. 

Virginia became the third straight No. 1 seed to cut down the nets, joining Villanova (2018) and North Carolina (2017). Unlike the other two, they were the lone No. 1 seed at the Final Four, joined by No. 2 seed Michigan State, No. 3 seed Texas Tech and No. 5 seed Auburn.
