Who Won The 2013 NCAA Tournament?


The 2013 NCAA Tournament was one for the ages - with dramatic upsets, incredible finishes and no shortage of drama, March Madness was at its best.

The Final Four was made up of three traditional powers and a relative newcomer. Louisville overcame guard Kevin Ware's traumatic leg injury in their Elite Eight matchup against Duke, ultimately winning 85-63, advancing to their second consecutive Final Four.

Louisville was joined by Syracuse, a perennial contender who had been seeded 4th in their region, as well as Michigan, who snuck by top-seeded Kansas and routed Florida to make the last four.

The Final Four was rounded out by Wichita State, an underdog from the Missouri Valley Conference. The Shockers were seeded 9th in their region, but beat top-seeded Gonzaga and a strong Ohio State team to reach the National Semifinal.

Wichita State ultimately fell to Louisville 72-68, and Michigan managed to stifle Syracuse 61-56 to set up a marquee matchup in the National Title Game.

Louisville ultimately came out on top, completing an emotional title run by beating Michigan 82-76. The Cardinals earned coach Rick Pitino his second NCAA Title thanks to a cohesive team effort.
