The 1988 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 17, 1988, and ended with the championship game on April 4 returning to Kansas City, Missouri for the 10th time. A total of 63 games were played.

Kansas, coached by Larry Brown, won the national title with an 83–79 victory in the final game over Big 8 Conference rival Oklahoma, coached by Billy Tubbs. As of 2010, this was the last national championship game to feature two schools from the same conference. Danny Manning of Kansas was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player. Kansas was considered a long shot against the top rated Sooners, who had previously defeated the Jayhawks twice that season, even though the Final Four was contested only 40 miles from the KU campus in Lawrence, Kansas. After this upset, the 1988 Kansas team was remembered as "Danny and the Miracles." As a #6 seed, KU had the fortune of not having to play the #1, #2, or #3 seeds in its regional.



(*) Kentucky was later stripped of its two NCAA tournament wins due to an ineligible player.
