    Correlation between Kansas and the NCAA Tournament

    Correct me if my memory is wrong, but I believe every time ISU has beaten Kansas since the 1999 - 2000 season, it has gone to the NCAA Tournament and every time it has lost, there has been no trip to the Tourney.

    That's an astounding statistic if I remember correctly. It shows you how little success the Clones have had against Kansas in recent years after constantly beating highly-ranked Jayhawk teams at home from the mid-80s through the early 2000s.

    99 - 00: two wins (NCAA Tourney)
    00 - 01: two wins (NCAA Tourney)
    01 - 02: No wins
    02 - 03: No wins
    03 - 04: No wins
    04 - 05: One win (NCAA Tourney)
    05 - 06: No wins
    06 - 07: No wins
    07 - 08: No wins
    08 - 09: No wins
    09 - 10: No wins
    10 - 11: No wins
    11 - 12: One win (NCAA Tourney)
    12 - 13: ???

    Interesting correlation if my memory is correct. I hope we beat them tomorrow.

    Re: Correlation between Kansas and the NCAA Tournament

    Goes to show that if we are good enough to beat a team like KU, we will be good enough to make the NCAA Tournament. Not a surprising stat IMO.

    Re: Correlation between Kansas and the NCAA Tournament

    in 00 or 01 did they also have a win in the Tourney against them. I know they had a 5 game win streak against them.

    The 5 game win streak dated back to a win in the 98-99 season. LE's first year when they I believe were 15-15.

    Re: Correlation between Kansas and the NCAA Tournament

    I don't think that it is suprising that its correlated well, but it is supprising that it has been a perfect predictor both ways. 100% correlation over more than a decade is pretty telling.

    Looks like the boys better buckle down and get er done.

    Re: Correlation between Kansas and the NCAA Tournament

    Well we actually did win in Ames during the 03-04 season. We didn't make the NCAA tournament that year, but we did make the semis of the NIT. We have also made the NIT without beating Kansas, so I guess your premise holds mostly true.

    As to our lack of success against Kansas that is every Big 8/Big 12 school and it goes back to when Roy Williams took the reins in 1988. Since Roy's second year (1989-90) @ KU, KU's conference regular season record is 296-358 or a 82.7 winning percentage. We actually have a slightly better record than most conference teams; ISU has won 11 times in 47 attempts (KU 76.6%).

    Re: Correlation between Kansas and the NCAA Tournament

    I still don't think we are solidly in the NCAA Tournament like people may precieve. We win tonight, then we are. Win two games and we are a lock, and could completely colapse the rest of the way and still make the big dance.

    We beat them at home in 03-04. That year we lost to Rutgers in the NIT Final Four.
