45. UNC's first title

Led by Lennie Rosenbluth, a 6-foot-5 forward, UNC won its first NCAA title in one of the most thrilling title games in NCAA tournament history, a three-overtime win against Kansas. Rosenbluth averaged 28 points during the 1957 NCAA tournament, scoring 20 in the finale, but it was teammate Joe Quigg who sealed UNC's undefeated season. With Rosenbluth sidelined -- he fouled out in regulation trying to contend with KU sophomore center Wilt Chamberlain -- Quigg buried two free throws with 6 seconds left in the third overtime, then knocked away a pass to Chamberlain to secure the 54-53 victory. North Carolina, coached by Frank McGuire, finished 32-0. -- Robbi Pickeral
