The Jayhawks were ranked sixth in its region that year but got hot at just the right time in order to win it all. Arizona won it all as a No. 4 seed in 1997, but every National Championship winner since has been a No. 3 seed or higher with each of the last four tourney winners being a No. 1 seed.

Defense Does It!

Come on people…you know defense wins championships in every sport and this age-old adage is no different in college basketball.

Teams that can lock in defensively late in games stand an excellent chance of bringing home the bacon come March Madness time.
