Super Mario Delivers Kansas a Title
Memphis, which had been dogged all season by criticism over their free-throw shooting, missed four of their last five from the line in regulation. At the most critical moments in the game, Chris Douglas-Roberts and Derrick Rose could not convert and the Jayhawks took advantage.

Chalmers scored 18 points and had five steals, earning him Final Four Most Outstanding Player honors.
