March Madness: Top 10 Cinderella runs

Penn (1979)

This year was known as the Magic and Larry show but the Final Four that season also included the Quakers.

Penn is the last team from the Ivy League to reach the Final Four, making it as a No. 9 seed. After edging No. 8 Iona in the first round, Penn stunned top-seeded North Carolina in the second round 72-71. Victories over Syracuse and St. John’s made the Quakers were the first Ivy League team since Bill Bradley led Princeton to the 1965 Final Four.

Michigan State and Magic Johnson ended the Quakers’ run at a national title and eventually won it all with a victory over Indiana State and Larry Bird.

Villanova (1985)

Villanova went 19-10 in a rugged Big East Conference that had a pair of No. 1 seeds in the tournament in Georgetown and St. John’s. The Wildcats were a No. 8 seed and got past Michigan and top-seeded North Carolina en route to the Final Four.

After knocking off Memphis State in the national semifinals, Villanova got a third crack at Georgetown and they shot the lights out to upend the defending national champion Hoyas and become the lowest-seeded national champion in history.

George Mason (2006)

The Patriots went 23-7 and earned the No. 11 seed in the Washington regional.

The run started with a victory over Michigan State and then George Mason took out North Carolina and Wichita State to set up a regional final matchup with top-seeded UConn.

George Mason outlasted Rudy Gay and Connecticut, 86-84, in overtime to become the second 11-seed in history to advance to the Final Four.

Davidson (2008)

Steph Curry is the NBA’s best shooter but before he became a standout for the Golden State Warriors, he led Davidsson on a magical NCAA Tournament run.

The Wildcats were the 10th seed in the Midwest regional and opened with a win over Gonzaga. Curry then scored 30 points in a win over Georgetown and 33 in a 17-point blowout of Wisconsin.

The run came to an end in the regional final as eventual champion Kansas “held” Curry 25 points in a two-point victory.

Butler (2010)

Butler came within inches of a national title as Gordon Hayward's last-second shot from half court nearly banked in.

Led by Hayward and Shelvin Mack, Butler beat the top two seeds in its region, Syracuse and Kansas State, and also took out Michigan State in the Final Four.

VCU (2011)

The Rams were lucky to be in the tournament and had to play in one of the first four games to even get into the real field of 64. Once VCU got by USC in Dayton it took off and went all the way to the Final Four before being stopped by Butler.

With the run, VCU became the first team to ever win five games to get to the Final Four.
