Trivia

This was the last tournament in which the four regions carried geographic names. Starting in 2004, the quarters of the bracket were referred to by the names of the cities in which the regionals were held. The 2004 NCAA Mens Division I Basketball Tournament involved 65 schools playing in single-elimination play to determine the national champion of mens NCAA Division I college basketball. ...


This was also the last year that semifinal matchups were determined on a predetermined rotation. Arizona and University of Kentucky were widely considered the two top teams in the tournament, but would have met in the semifinals instead of the finals because Arizona was in the West bracket and Kentucky in the Midwest. Dick Vitale and other basketball commentators felt that, as this would have theoretically been the best game of the year, it should have happened in the finals; they argued that Kentucky should have been placed in the East regional, as Albany is only 60 or so miles further from Kentucky's campus in Lexington than Minneapolis is, or that the Final Four should be reseeded each year to ensure the best possible matchup in the final game. As it happened, both teams lost in the regional finals and thus did not make the Final Four, rendering these complaints fairly moot. However, the NCAA Committee during the offseason determined that semifinal matchups would be determined based on the overall seeding of the top team in that bracket (see the 2004 tournament for more details). The University of Arizona (UA or U of A) is a land-grant and space-grant public institution of higher education and research located in Tucson, Arizona, United States. ... The University of Kentucky (also as UK or simply Kentucky) is a public, co-educational university located in Lexington, Kentucky. ...

Dwayne Wade of Marquette recorded only the fourth triple-double in NCAA's Men's Tournament history, after Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson and Andre Miller. Wade delivered 29 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, and 4 blocks to win the midwest regional championship game versus Kentucky 83-69.
