Question From Quiz: NCAA Tournament Losers #2 (click to play it). Question by author asutbone.

Answer: Indiana The #1 seeded Kentucky Wildcats defeated #4 seeded Syracuse in the championship game. Syracuse had beaten #5 Mississippi State in the Final Four, who had beaten #2 Cincinnati in the Elite Eight. The Bearcats had gotten that far by beating #3 Georgia Tech in the Sweet Sixteen. GT had previously defeated #11 Boston College, who had eliminated #6 Indiana in the first round.
