52NCAA BB'Nova Does the Impossible
Date / Apr 1, 1985
Location / Rupp Arena | Lexington, Ky.
Moment / Georgetown, led by Patrick Ewing, had the nation's best defense and had defeated Villanova twice in the regular season. But Villanova shot almost 80 percent from the field and won 66-64 in the national championship game.
Impact / This marked the first year the NCAA tournament expanded to 64 teams, so it's fitting that it also yielded an all-time upset. An eighth seed, Villanova remains the lowest-seeded team to ever win the NCAA title.
