    Just curious...

    Has a team ever knocked off the defending National Champion in the NCAA Tournament and lose to what will be that year's champion in the same tournament? Will we be the first?

    FTFY. It's not set in stone that Kentucky is going to win it all.

    I don't know if it is something to be proud of.

    Not saying it would be, I was just curious.

    It happened last year. Arizona beat Duke, and then lost to UConn in their next game. Duke lost in the Sweet 16, though, not the first round.

    Nice digging. Didn't have to look too far, ha.

    It also happened in 2009. Michigan State beat Kansas in the Sweet 16, and ended up losing to UNC in the championship game.

    2006--George Mason beats UNC, loses to Florida. 2004--Alabama beats 'Cuse, loses to UConn.

    No more digging; this appears to be a pretty common occurrence.

    Nope. I never watch college basketball...

    They are the odds on favorite, no doubt... but there are still games to be played. It's not definite.
