STAT OF THE DAY
An interesting note from the folks at STATS:
Syracuse’s one-point loss to Indiana in the 1987 national championship game was certainly a memorable battle, and it also started a trend that Orange fans won’t like heading into Saturday’s game against Michigan.
All-time in the Final Four, Big Ten teams have beaten Big East schools four of five times (based on teams’ conference affiliation at the time of their meeting).
The lone Final Four win for the Big East over the Big Ten came in 1999, when eventual champ UConn defeated Ohio State in the semifinals. The last such game came in the `09 semifinals, when Michigan State surprised UConn, 82-73.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
“It’s like he’s never left. Words can’t explain our feelings to have him back with us.” _ Louisville guard Peyton Siva on teammate Kevin Ware joining the Cardinals in Atlanta just a few days after his horrific leg injury.
