Cincy Shirts' Bracket Help 2.0

It's bracket time again and again, like last year, two local teams are attending the big dance. UC returns to the NCAA Men's College Basketball Tournament, this time as a No. 7 seed. NKU, after a one year absence, is also in, securing a 14 spot for the 2019 tournament. 

 As you fill out your brackets, Cincy Shirts offers you a rundown, by the numbers, of the tournament results going back to 2001. Excuse the hinky formatting and glean what you can from the data, which may or may not be 100 percent accurate. Hope it helps.
