Michigan completes an improbable run to the National Championship, beating Seton Hall 80-79 in overtime in the final at the Kingdome in Seattle. The Wolverines played the tournament with an interim coach as Bill Frieder left for Arizona State, leaving Steve Fisher to lead the team in the tournament. The game was highly controversial as the Wolverines won the game thanks to a phantom foul in the final seconds of overtime.
