NCAA Tournament Tidbits
The 2013 NCAA Basketball Tournament is finally here. Below are some quick facts and thoughts to consider when filling out your office bracket.
Overall #1 seed has won 5 of last 6 NCAA national championships.
In 2011 when #3 seed Connecticut won the title, it was the first time in history that no #1 or #2 seed made the Final Four.
Teams seeded #1 thru #3 have won 30 of the past 34 NCAA Championships:
#1 seed (19 times 56%)
#2 seed (6 times 18%)
#3 seed (5 times 15%)
#4 or worse (4 times 12%)
First Round Dominance:
#1 seeds are 88-0 (100%) SU versus #16 seeds.
#2 seeds are 82-6 (93%) SU versus #15 seeds, however two #15 seeds won last year.
#3 seeds are 78-10 (89%) SU versus #14 seeds
#4 seeds are 69-19 (78%) SU versus #13 seeds
Biggest pointspread upset in NCAA Tournament history occurred last year when #15 Norfolk State (+21.5) defeated #2 Missouri, 86-84.
Odds & Ends:
Georgetown has been eliminated four straight times by a double-digit seeded opponent in the NCAA Tournament. The Hoyas have lost to #10, #14, #11, and #10 seeds (2008-2012).
Oregon is a #12 seed, while UCLA is a #6 seed, despite Ducks being -1.5 favorite and winning the Pac-12 tournament versus the Bruins on a neutral court? A strange seeding which shows how the oddsmakers and the selection committee often have different opinions.

1* Free Play OVER Twins/White Sox.
The visitors hand the ball to Ricky Nolasco, who gave up four runs off ten hits with four walks to just one K over six innings in a loss to the light-hitting Phillies on Thursday. His four walks were a season high and his one K was a season low. Note that Nolasco has been particularly horrible in this spot all year, going 1-3 with an atrocious 6.47 ERA in all “night” contests. The home side counters with the beleagured James Shields (2-9, 6.22) who comes in off perhaps his best outing of the year, giving up three runs off five hits with four walks over five innings vs. the Red Sox on Thursday. His 9:17 K:BB ratio over his last five starts is one of the worst in MLB history. No need to overthink this one, with these two volatile hurlers going head-to-head on Wednesday night, the OVER does indeed become worthy of a second look in this particular matchup.
