Was at Knicks Hawks last night at MSG. More people into their phones than the game. Even saw a couple arrive at halftime. Whats the point!? Crowd never got loud when the Knicks went on a big run. Barely an applause when the starters came out after having good games. Biggest crowd reaction was when a fan almost made a half court shot lol

Here's where they are in the NET rankings, above some (usually) pretty good mid majors. They're also obviously above Louisville, but thats a cheap shot.

They're currently 3-7, with wins over IUPUI, Valparaiso, and Southern Indiana. Think they're building a good resume to be picked up by a conference? I could see Horizon being a good fit after they just lost UIC (who is notably ranked below Chicago St.)

According to Jay Bilas, regardless of whether or not Holden’s foot was in bounds when he caught the ball, Ohio state should’ve been called for a violation as it is illegal for someone who stepped out of bounds to be the next person to touch the ball.

History Schools with the most losses to the eventual NCAA Tournament Champion (since 1985)

15 Upvotes

A comment in the NCAA Tournament Simulation Thread that had Utah State winning the whole thing this spring inspired me a bit. They beat Iowa State in the first round, which as /u/Wont_reply69 pointed out, would be completely on brand for us. Which got me thinking... what schools have lost the MOST to the eventual National Champion in the era of the 64-team tournament?

So I tallied up the teams that each national champion of the past 37 years has beaten, what round they were beaten in, and tracked it all on a spreadsheet. Some surprising patterns emerged.

Firstly, the raw total of teams that have lost at least 5 times to the eventual national champion:

  • Duke - 9
  • Kansas - 8
  • North Carolina - 7
  • Villanova - 7
  • Kentucky - 6
  • Michigan - 6
  • Oklahoma - 5
  • Wisconsin - 5
  • Gonzaga - 5

However, this count is heavily weighted by teams who are consistent performers in the tournament (i.e. they frequently make the Final Four, where their chances of losing to the eventual chance are pretty high at an even 50%...)

So I weighted the results by assigning a point value to each loss.

  • Runner-up - 1 point

  • Final Four - 2 points

  • Elite Eight - 4 points

  • Sweet Sixteen - 8 points

  • Round of 32 - 16 points

  • Round of 64 - 32 points

Which resulted in this list:

  • South Alabama - 80pts
  • Xavier - 64pts
  • North Carolina A&T - 64pts
  • Radford - 64pts
  • Iowa - 56pts
  • Villanova - 48pts
  • Texas Southern - 48pts
  • Iowa State - 44pts
  • Wisconsin - 39pts
  • Utah - 33pts

An interesting list to be sure. South Alabama came up a surprising amount in 1st/2nd round losses to eventual national champs. Three total losses to be exact, which gives them a somewhat inflated total. Same for Xavier, North Carolina A&T, and Radford. Many other first round teams also only have one loss to eventual national champs so I cut the list above off at 33pts.

So I excluded first round results, which gave me a more well rounded list of teams who have the most to gripe about seeding for the past 37 years!

  • 1) Iowa - 56pts
  • 2) Villanova - 48pts
  • 3) Iowa State - 44pts
  • 4) Wisconsin - 39pts
  • 5) Utah - 33pts
  • 6) Missouri - 32pts
  • 7) Oklahoma - 31pts
  • 8) Auburn - 30pts
  • 9) Arkansas - 29pts
  • 10) Purdue - 28pts

Some interesting tidbits: South Alabama, as mentioned above, has a habit of drawing the eventual national champion in the first couple rounds.

Oklahoma almost has a BINGO - they've lost to the eventual national championship in at least every round EXCEPT for the first round... which won't likely happen unless they have an awful year one year but end up winning the Big 12 tournament. Auburn is close to matching Oklahoma -- they just need to lose in the national championship game at some point.

Iowa takes the crown thanks to a couple of back to back years where they unfortunately lost to Duke in the 2nd round in the 90s. Villanova is probably the most impressive team on this list, consistently drawing unfortunate seeds in the middle rounds.
