2001 NCAA tournament: Bracket, scores, stats, rounds

Watch full game: No. 15 Hampton shocks No. 2 Iowa State in the 2001 NCAA tournament

The 2001 NCAA Tournament was the first NCAA tournament with a 65-team bracket, prior to the introduction of the 68-team bracket that featured the First Four in 2011. In 2001, the addition of an auto-bid for the Mountain West, along with the maintaining of 34 at-large bids, resulted in a 65-team bracket. No. 16 seed Northwestern State defeated No. 16 seed Winthrop in the first opening-round game.

Duke won the 2001 national championship, the Blue Devils' third national title, in a Final Four that also featured Arizona, Maryland and Michigan State.
