UCLA Beats Arkansas in Final Four
The 1995 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament involved 64 schools playing in single-elimination play to determine the national champion of men's NCAA Division I college basketball.
It began on March 16, 1995, and ended with the championship game on April 3 at the Kingdome in Seattle, Washington. A total of 63 games were played. UCLA, coached by Jim Harrick, won its record 11th NCAA Men's Basketball Championship and its first since the John Wooden era by defeating the University of Arkansas, who came up one game short in their bid to repeat as champions.
UCLA collected its 11th NCAA crown - and first since 1975 - as it beat Arkansas 89-78 with legendary John Wooden in the stands and point guard Tyus Edney on the bench. Arkansas came up one win short of repeating its title. And Ed O'Bannon was named the Most Outstanding Player.
