Final Four

National Semifinals

  • April 1, Michigan Statemarker (M1) 53, Wisconsinmarker (W8) 41
  • :In the first half it appeared that the Cinderella run of the Wisconsin Badgersmarker had a great chance of continuing. Wisconsin's slow down offense, smothering defense tempo held the game to a Michigan State Spartansmarker 19-17 lead. However, the only number one seed left in the tournament opened the second half with a 13-2 run, including 10 points from senior Morris Peterson. After the run, Michigan State coasted home against Wisconsin's limited offense.
  • :Despite being behind 18-3 to start the game and trailing at halftime, the North Carolina Tar Heelsmarker took control of the early minutes of the second half, and managed to sneak ahead 48-42 with 15:44 to play. However, the Florida Gatorsmarker answered back with a 9-0 run to give them the lead for good. The Gators held the Tar Heels to just six points over a 9 1/2 minute span to put them in great shape. Foul trouble ultimately doomed the Tar Heels, and the Gators advanced to their first ever National Championship game.


Championship Game

  • April 3, 2000
    • Michigan State (M1) 89, Florida (E5) 76
  • :Michigan State senior Mateen Cleaves limped his way to the Most Outstanding Player (MOP) of the 2000 NCAA Tournament. Cleaves sprained his ankle with 16:18 to play in the 2nd half, and this was after Florida had trimmed Michigan State's double digit halftime lead to 50-44. Cleaves returned about four minutes later, and immediately helped lead the Spartans on a 16-6 run to put the game out of reach. The lone top-seed remaining would bring order to a tournament filled with upsets as they salted away the victory for the school's second ever National Championship (1979). Michigan State coach Tom Izzo earned his first ever title, from his second straight final four appearance. Morris Peterson led the Spartans with 21 points.
