Need Help With Your Brackets?

Basketball

The brackets are out, and two of our hometown teams are top seeds. Xavier is the No. 1 seed in the West and UC is No. 2 in the South.

Since 2001, I’ve kept notes on the tournament results based on the notion that the The 10-member NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Committee handicaps the entire field for you. Of course that only helps to a certain extent, as you’re really looking at 4 separate tournaments of sixteen teams (not including the play-in teams).  

High seeds are high seeds for a reason, though these games are played by humans. With that, here’s a look at the 2018 tournament by the numbers...mostly.

And apologies for the table formatting being a little hinky.

Don't forget to listen to The Cincy Shirts Podcast Episode 4 with guest Cashmere Wright.

March Madness Notes -2018

The favorite has made 9 of the last 14 Final Fours (Won in 2005,2007,2009,2012, 2013,2015)

(In 2016 Kansas and Michigan State were co-favorites. Neither made the Final Four)

This year Villanova is the odds favorite with UVA the No. 1 seed overall.

Don’t go west young people as 43 of 55 Champions have come from east of the Mississippi River. Eleven of those Western wins were UCLA and one was UNLV (‘90).

An ACC team has made the Final Four 25 times since 1990 winning 9. The rest of the U.S., 14. None in 2007, 2008, 2011 (UNC in 2009 won, Duke 2010, none in 2012, Syracuse in 2013, none in 2014, Duke won in 2015, UNC 2017).

In the past 40 years the champion has been a(n):

8-Once 6-Twice 4-Once 3- Six times

2- 8 times 1- Twenty-three 5-Zero 7-Zero

With so much in my heart I am here to express myself on how Priest Salami saved my marriage from divorce. Myself and my husband were having some misunderstanding and it was tearing our marriage apart to the extent my husband was seeking a divorce. So I have no option other than to go to the internet to seek a solution to my problem. It was there I came across Priest Salami details and about how he has helped a lot of people by restoring their relationship. I contacted Priest Salami and in less than 48 hours my husband cancelled the divorce papers. Now myself and my husband live together in peace and harmony all thanks to Priest Salami for saving my marriage from breaking up. Priest Salami contact information are via email: purenaturalhealer@gmail.com. Whatsapp number: +2348143757229

As the 2024 season draws near, I find myself reflecting on the journey that led me to become a devoted Cincinnati Reds fan. For many of us, our passion for this team and the game itself runs deep in our blood, often cultivated by the experiences shared with family and friends.
