1993 NCAA tournament: Bracket, scores, stats, records

Watch full game: Steve Nash, Santa Clara upset Arizona in 1993 NCAA tournament

North Carolina won its third national title with a 77-71 win against Michigan in the 1993 NCAA tournament. The Tar Heels' Donald Williams was named Most Outstanding Player.

Three of the four Final Four teams were No. 1 seeds: North Carolina, Michigan (which later vacated its appearance) and Kentucky. The fourth team, Kansas, was a No. 2 seed — and beat No. 1 seed Indiana in the Elite Eight.

There were major upsets, however. In the West, No. 15 Santa Clara, No. 13 Southern and No. 12 George Washington all won in the First Round. Santa Clara's upset was just the second 15-over-2 shocker at the time. Future two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash led the Broncos.
