One of the best programs in college basketball over recent years, the Michigan Wolverines have found a way to constantly exceed expectations during the NCAA Tournament.

Michigan has won the Big Ten Conference twice in the last five seasons, but how has that success translated to March Madness?

Here's a look at Michigan's NCAA Tournament history.

Has Michigan Ever Won a National Championship?

Yes, the Michigan Wolverines won an NCAA Basketball National Championship in March Madness during the 1989 season. They defeated the Seton Hall Pirates in overtime by a score of 80-79.

Michigan March Madness Wins & Best Finishes

Michigan's best March Madness finish came when they won the National Championship game in 1989. Aside from that, the Wolverines have finished as the runner-up six times, most recently in 2018.

Overall, Michigan has made the Final Four eight times: 1964, 1965, 1976, 1989, 1992, 1993, 2013, and 2018. Keep in mind the 1992 Final Four and all 1993, 1996, & 1998 games have been forfeited due to NCAA sanctions, though.
