    It sounds funny, but how about UNLV as the last mid major winning it all back in 1990? But back then, they did not seem like a mid major.

    Probably Texas Western. They were considered "little" back then.

    UNLV came from a mid-major conference but they did not play like a mid-major.

    UNLV had one of the best teams of all time, in fact the following year they went undefeated through the regular season , but lost in the final four. Utah had a second half lead over Kentucky, in the 1998 championship but eventually lost. Those are some goals I hope the Lobos can someday reach.
