Last National Champ With Dominant Big Man?

dominant big man as in center or someone like Zion? For a center, Ewing comes to mind. A dominant frontline player, Larry Johnson and Anthony Davis come to mind.

Pervis Ellison dominated at Louisville also.
2004 Connecticut Huskies with Emeka Okafor
2 fouls in the first 3 minutes of semi-final game against Duke. Calhoun sits him out for the remaining 17 minutes of the first half. Thought that was a big mistake and the Duke lead ballooned to 12 or 13 points. Luckily it worked out.

The game you reference, Jammer, ended with Chris Duhon hitting a 40-foot heave to make the final score, UConn 79 Duke 78.

UConn closed a 2-point favorite.

The game has really changed. Now they recruit big guys that can set ball screens and do a little rebounding. It's a guards game
for sure that is why HC Cronin for Cincy said before the 'Big Dance'; you'll go as far as your guards take you. Said after
his team shot over 40% from 3 point land and winning conference tourney.
