Since the very first national championship in college basketball in 1939, teams from Michigan have made the tournament's Final Four a total of eighteen times (two of which were later vacated).

Granted, just two schools have been responsible for the state's appearances - Michigan State and Michigan. The Spartans have made it to the Final Four ten times. The Wolverines have technically made it to the Final Four eight times; however, the school's appearances in 1992 and 1993 were later vacated after the NCAA determined that a major booster had made illegal payments to a handful of former Wolverine athletes over the course of several years.

How Many Teams From Michigan Have Won the National Championship?

While Michigan's been to the national championship game more often over the years than Michigan State has, the Spartans know how to make those rare appearances count. Michigan State has won the national title twice out of the three times it's been in the championship game. Michigan has only one national title to its credit, losing the final every other time the Wolverines made it that far.
