Which two teams have played the most in the ncaa final four?

Through 2012, North Carolina and the University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) have each played in 18 Final Fours, but due to the use of ineligible players, UCLA's 1980 appearance was vacated by the NCAA governing body. Thus, the record books reflect that North Carolina has made 18 appearances and UCLA 17.To answer your question very precisely, however, the two teams that "have played the most" in the Final Four are UCLA, which has played 33 games in the Final Four (18 semi-finals, 13 championship games and 2 third-place contests) and North Carolina, which has played 30 Final Four games (18 semi-finals, 9 championship games and 3 third-place contests). Even when one subtracts the vacated appearances, UCLA has played 31 Final Four match-ups to North Carolina's 30.


What event lead to the end of the third game of the final four?

For the record, the NCAA basketball Final Four consists of three (3) games, the third game being the Championship Game. But I think you are probably asking about the third-place game, which was discontinued after the 1981 tournament. The primary reason for discontinuing this game, which was played between the losers of the first two games among the Final Four, was that the teams were very deflated after not reaching the Championship Game. Thus, the third-placegames were not very entertaining for the spectators nor exciting for the players. (By the way, formany years, there were also third-placegames for each of the four regionals.)
