The 1992 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament involved 64 schools playing in single-elimination play to determine the national champion of men's NCAA Division I college basketball. It began on March 19, 1992, and ended with the championship game on April 6 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A total of 63 games were played.

Duke, coached by Mike Krzyzewski, won the national title with a 71-51 victory in the final game over Michigan, coached by Steve Fisher. Bobby Hurley of Duke was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player.

This tournament is best remembered for the East regional final pitting Duke and Kentucky at The Spectrum in Philadelphia. With 2.1 seconds remaining in overtime, Duke trailed 103-102. Grant Hill threw a pass the length of the court to Christian Laettner, who dribbled once, turned, and hit a jumper as time expired for the 104-103 win. Sports Illustrated deemed it the greatest college basketball game of all time [Matthew Waxman = [http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2004/sioncampus/03/10/greatest_games0311/ 16 Greatest Games] Sports Illustrated (On Campus), March 10, 2004] , and ESPN included it as number 17 in their top 100 sports moments of the past 25 years (see ESPN25). It is number one on the USA Today list of the greatest NCAA tournament games of all time.
