Final AP Top 20

Major Conference Champions

NCAA Tournament (64 teams)

NIT Tournament (32 teams)

Players of the Year

Coaches of the Year

Consensus All-America

The NCAA championship game was scheduled for April Fools night and promised to be a laugher.

Georgetown, after all, was the defending champion, the No.1 team in the country and started Co-Player of the Year Patrick Ewing at center. Villanova, on the other hand, wasn't even ranked and had lost to the Hoyas both times the two teams met in the Big East play.

Nevertheless, the underdog Wildcats shot 78.6 percent (22 for 28) and won, 66–64. Some joke.

Meanwhile, the NCAA tourney field was increased to 64 teams.
