Michigan State (2000-01)
If you include 1999, Michigan State actually made three straight Final Fours. Oh, did the Spartans boast an embarrassment of riches. The 2000 national championship team guided by seniors Mateen Cleaves, Morris Peterson and A.J. Granger gave way to Charlie Bell (top right) and Zach Randolph and Jason Richardson (bottom right) in 2001. Somehow, the Spartans made it back to the Final Four despite the changeover but fell to Arizona.
