    Re: ISU-UConn Tournament Tidbits

    The margin of victory was the third largest in tournament history for ISU behind 24 against UCLA and 19 against Auburn both in 2000.

    I wonder how many grandfather/grandson combinations have taken teams to the NCAA? Fred's grandad took Toledo before he went on to coach at kNU. I don't think he ever won a tourney game, though.

    Toledo has had 2 coaches in the tournament:

    Jerry Bush 0-1 (1954) - Fred's Grandpa
    Bob Nichols 1-3 (1967, 1979-80)

    Re: ISU-UConn Tournament Tidbits

    Other tidbits:

    ISU now has a 13-13 record in the tournament and 7-4 since a member of the Big 12.

    ISU is 8-5 in the Round of 64.

    The .800 winning percentage as a higher seed is tied for the 8th best for schools that have played at least 10 games as higher seed. (tied with Utah)

    Here is top 10: (as of today's games)
    1. Seton Hall 10-1 .909
    2. Michigan State 35-5 .875
    3. Connecticut 42-7 .857
    4. Louisville 39-7 .848
    5. Kansas 57-13 .814
    6. North Carolina 73-17 .811
    7. Kentucky 58-14 .806
    8. Utah 16-4 .800
    Iowa State 8-2 .800
    10. Arkansas 27-7 .794

    ISU is now 4-3 with a lower RPI (UConn is #32 and ISU is #33). That is the 8th best regardless of number of games and 4th best of anyone with at least 5 games.

    (So if we are higher seed, but lower RPI - we are golden)

    ISU is now 2-0 vs. teams from Connecticut (We beat Central Connecticut State in the Round of 64 in 2000)

    It was ISU's first game against the Big East, but we did beat current Big East member Cincinnati in 1997 when they were a member of Conference USA.

    In terms of ISU tournament teams, this year's team has the 4th most victories in school history. If we make it to the elite eight, it will be the 2nd most.

    2000 32
    2001 25
    1996 24
    1995 23
    2012 23

    ISU is now 5-7 when unranked going into the tournament. Only 19 schools have a better than .500 record when unranked.

    And finally in preparation for Saturday's game -

    ISU is 1-2 when playing in the Opponent's Home State
    1995 Florida W
    2000 Michigan State L
    2005 North Carolina L

    ISU is 0-2 vs. #1 seeds. Michigan State in 2000 and North Carolina in 2005 were the two #1 seeds we have played in the past.

    This will be the first time that ISU has ever played the team ranked #1 in the AP Poll in the tournament. The highest ranked team that we have beaten is #5 Michigan in 1986. They were also the highest seeded team we have beaten at #2.

    We have played Kentucky once in the tournament, losing to them 106-98 in 1992. That game marks both the most points ISU has ever scored and allowed in the tournament.

    Kentucky will be the 4th school that ISU has played multiple times in the tournament joining North Carolina, UCLA (4 times) and Utah.

    Royce is the first player in tournament history with 12 inch hands to record a double double while taking less than 10 shots.

    Re: ISU-UConn Tournament Tidbits

    I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but the Clones could end up playing 3 of last year's Final Four teams if they make it to the Sweet 16 and play VCU.

    The only thing better would be to beat two of this years final four teams.

    Very true, nothing would be better than that.

    To make your win even better, the only other loss in the round of 64 occurred because our starting point guard blew out his knee in the 1st half of that game. He's in the NBA now.
    So you're our only real loss in the 1st round.
