Question of the Day
BIG EAST TWOSOME
The Big East was considered one of the toughest conferences in college basketball and came through with two teams in the Final Four: Louisville and Syracuse.
It marks the first time in four years that a conference has gotten two teams through to the Final Four. The Big East, which will be dramatically altered after realignment next season, had two in the national semifinals in 2009, too, when Connecticut and Villanova made it.
In all, it’s happened 22 times since 1976, though it doesn’t always increase the odds of the conference winning a championship.
Conferences that have gotten two teams into the Final Four have produced the champion 10 times, most recently Florida in 2006, when LSU also made it.
The 2013 NCAA tournament isn’t over yet, but there are already odds on next year’s bracket.
And the favorite probably won’t come as a surprise after John Calipari pulled together another top-rated recruiting class: Kentucky.
According to The Greek Sports Book, Coach Cal and the Wildcats, despite missing this year’s tournament, are 3-1 favorites to cut down the nets at Cowboys Stadium in North Texas next year.
Next in line is Duke at 5-1, Florida and North Carolina at 8-1, then Louisville and Memphis at 12-1.
Among the other 2013 Final Four teams, Syracuse is 15-1, while Michigan and Wichita State are 30-1.
