2002 NCAA Champions
After making a trip to the Final Four in 2001, Maryland took advantage of that experience the next season in winning the school’s first-ever national championship. The Terps defeated Indiana, 64-52, in the championship game, after beating Siena, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Connecticut and Kansas on the way to the final.
NCAA final Four MVP Juan Dixon had 155 points in the 2002 tournament, the ninth-highest figure in tournament history. His five steals against Indiana were the most in a title game since 1990.
The Terps’ 32 victories broke the Maryland school record for wins in a season. The Terps became the 15th team in ACC history to win 30 games.
Gary Williams became the first coach since 1974 to lead his alma mater to an NCAA championship.
