Selection Sunday is here!
North Carolina, Connecticut, Louisville and Pittsburgh got top seeds for the 2009 Division 1 NCAA “March Madness” Basketball Tournament.
I wrote a very brief history of the NCAA “Final Four” Basketball Tournament last week.
Now, with the beauty of iDashboards, you can have all the stats in real time.
Mouse over each of your favorite team, and you can see the entire series of games highlighted. When the tournament begins on
Thursday Tuesday, you can get a great analysis of the game details. (Do we really care about the Alabama St. and Morehead St. “play-in” game outcome?)
No #16 seed has ever defeated a #1 seed since the field was expanded to 64 teams in 1985.
The tournament is a single-elimination format with no consolation games. If this was the Olympics, you would have the 2 losers of the semi-finals play in a useless “bronze medal game”. Interesting concept for more TV revenue!
