Best March Madness Runs Since 2010

It was difficult, but we came up with the 11 best March Madness runs since 2010, or in the last 10 men’s tournaments, to put it another way. These include mid-major shockers (literally and figuratively), wild national champions, runs that almost never were and more.

Might we see on the level of these in 2021? With how this event usually goes, it’s likely.

From double-digit seeds going to the Final Four to incredible finishes and more, these are the 11 best March Madness runs dating back to 2010.

2018 Virginia Was the Biggest March Madness Bust of the Decade

In 2019, Virginia men’s basketball won the national championship. That run was so spectacular, in part because of the ridiculous finishes to many of the Cavs’ games, but also because of what happened one season earlier.

I probably don’t have to tell you what happened. If you know, you know. If you’re a Virginia fan, you wish you didn’t know. If you don’t know, you’ll want to know.

In 2018, UMBC upset Virginia, 74-54, the first time a No. 16 seed beat a No. 1 seed in the men's March Madness, a major moment in this Decade of Basketball.
