March 22, 1958
Louisville

Senior Vernon Hatton scored 30 points and the Wildcats overcame a 25-point, 19-rebound performance by Elgin Baylor to capture their fourth NCAA championship. Led by Hatton and Johnny Cox, who finished with 24 points, the Wildcats twice battled back from 11-point deficits to gain the victory. Trailing for much of the game, UK grabbed its first lead with 6:08 left when Don Mills hit a hook shot to give the Wildcats a 6 1-60 lead. Moments later, Cox hit a jump shot to make it 63-60 and UK never trailed again. John Crigler added 14 points and 14 rebounds for the victors. Mills and Adrian Smith finished with nine and seven points, respectively. Aside from Baylor, Seattle received 17 points from Charley Brown and 16 from Jerry Frizzell.
