NCAA Midwest Regional
For the first time since seeding began, all four of the top seeds advanced to the Final Four. These were Memphis, the overall top seed and winner of the South region, UCLA, the winner of the West region making their third consecutive Final Four appearance, Kansas, the winner of the Midwest region, and North Carolina, back in the Final Four for the first time since their 2005 national championship.
Memphis and Kansas advanced to the national championship game, with Memphis' victory in the semifinals giving them a record setting 38 for the season beating the mark set by Duke in 1999. Kansas, however, spoiled their national championship hopes by handing the Tigers their second loss of the season by winning the game in overtime, 75-68. Memphis' entire season was later vacated by the NCAA due to eligibility concerns surrounding freshman guard Derrick Rose.
