Category: Best List | Best of | facts | NBA | top 10 listsThe List Ninja @ 00:54

The 2011 version of March Madness has not been a disappointment and Cinderella is coming to the dance.  We have compiled the Top 10 lowest seeds to advance to the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament.  If your cheer for the underdog then this year has not been a disappointment with two low seeded teams battling against some of the best college basketball players to earn their way to the Final Four.   

Here are the Top 10 lowest seeds to make the Final Four:

·        1979 – Pennsylvania ( 9th seed)

·        1980 – UCLA (8th seed)

·        1984 – UVA (7th seed)

·        1985 – Villanova (8th seed)   - National Champions

·        1986 – LSU (11th seed)

·        2000 – UNC (8th seed)

·        2000 – Wisconsin (8th seed)

·        2006 – George Mason (11th)

·        2011 – Butler (8th seed)

·        2011 – VCU – Virginia Commonwealth (11th)

Did you notice that there were very few lower seeds in the 1990’s?

Pre-Season Top 10 NCAA Men's Basketball 2010

Category: Best List | Best of | facts | new list | top 10 listsThe List Ninja @ 02:21

Who is your favorite NCAA Men’s Basketball team?  Did they make the pre-season Top 10 according to latest CBS rankings? Every year we have a chance to watch a player that could end up as the best college basketball player of all time.  Here is the list of pre-season Top 10:

1. Duke

 

Comment: Mike Krzyzewski has more options with this roster than last season's team because of the additions of McDonald's All-American point guard Kyrie Irving and transfer Seth Curry, otherwise known as Stephen Curry's younger brother. The Plumlee brothers should be better up front, Smith and Kyle Singler are accomplished scorers and Andre Dawkins is back to provide backcourt depth.

 

2. Michigan State

 

Comment: Tom Izzo's decision to reject an offer from the Cleveland Cavaliers and remain at Michigan State will keep the Spartans nationally relevant for years to come. A seventh Final Four in the past 13 seasons is the goal, and it's attainable thanks to the return of Kalin Lucas, Durrell Summers and Draymond Green.

 

3. Purdue

 

Comment: Robbie Hummel, JaJuan Johnson and E'Twaun Moore won't all develop into first-team All-Americans, but any of them could. That's why the Boilermakers should be among the favorites -- if not the favorite -- in the Big Ten and a smart man's pick to make the Final Four.

 

4. Ohio State

 

Comment: Remember how Texas had a better team the year after Kevin Durant left college? Life after E.T. (Evan Turner) will be similar for Ohio State thanks to Jared Sullinger, a freshman big man who could carry the Buckeyes to a Big Ten title.

 

5. Pittsburgh

 

Comment: What the roster lacks in future NBA players it makes up for in winners. Jamie Dixon has never had a bad team at Pittsburgh, and this won't be his first.

 

6. Kansas State

 

Comment: The Wildcats could make another Elite Eight (at least) thanks to the return of Jacob Pullen, Curtis Kelly and Jamar Samuels. The Frank Martin hire is looking smarter by the day.

 

7. North Carolina

 

Comment: This is higher than most have North Carolina. But the Tar Heels have a pro on the wing (Harrison Barnes), a pro at power forward (John Henson) and a pro in the middle (Tyler Zeller).

 

8. Florida

 

Comment: The Gators snapped a string of two straight NITs last season. This season they'll return to being nationally relevant, and, perhaps, SEC champions thanks to five guys -- Chandler Parsons, Kenny Boynton, Erving Walker, Alex Tyus and Vernon Macklin -- who averaged double figures last season (not to mention the addition of Patric Young).

 

9. Villanova

 

Comment: Like Ohio State without Turner, it's fair to think the Wildcats could be better without Scottie Reynolds. Credit Jay Wright's recruiting -- or just Jay Wright in general -- as the reason.

 

10. Baylor

 

Comment: Baylor's season was resuscitated Thursday when LaceDarius Dunn was allowed to return to classes despite the fact that he's facing a felony charge stemming from a domestic dispute. His presence ensures the Bears will have at least one star. The potential of Perry Jones makes it safe to assume they'll have at least two.

Which NCAA College Football team and program produces the most 1st round NFL draft picks? Many discussions and possible arguments have occurred over this very topic.  Even though being a 1st round draft pick does not guarantee success, it does help financially.  How many of these picks went on to become one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL? Here is a list of the Top 10 NCAA College Football programs that produce 1st round NFL draft picks (since the 1970 NFL merger):

·        USC Trojans (56 first round NFL draft picks)

·        Miami (55)

·        Ohio State (51)

·        Florida (38)

·        Tennessee (36)

·        Florida State (34)

The bigger question is how many of these picks became NFL pro-bowlers?

Biggest Upsets in NCAA Tournament History

Category: Best of | new list | top 10 listsThe List Ninja @ 22:27

As we kick off March Madness let’s take a look back at the biggest upsets in history.  Every year there are a few teams that step up and beat the favored school to take the title of “Cinderella”.  Some years have minimal upsets and then you have the improbable run of George Mason to the Final Four.  Here is our list of the top upsets in recent NCAA tournament history:

·         1983 - #1 University of Houston vs #6 North Carolina State  Clyde Drexler and Phi Slamma Jamma vs Jimmy V and Dereck Whittenburg – What a finish!

·         1985 - #1 Georgetown vs #8 Villanova – Patrick Ewing and team were on a tear through the tournament until Villanova shot a record 78% from the field to win by 2 points.

·         1991 - #2 Syracuse vs #15 Richmond – Syracuse had been a dominant team for several years but trailed most of the game and eventually lost after getting within one with less than a minute.

·         1996 - #4 UCLA vs #13 Princeton – UCLA was the defending national champion and led by seven points with six minutes to go and then were shut down by Princeton.

·         2001 - #2 Iowa State vs #15 Hampton – Iowa State had made it to the Elite Eight the previous year only to lose to Hampton after leading most of the game.

Will 2010 provide an upset that will make the list?  Check out our list of the Best College Basketball Player of All Time and rank your favorites.

5 Facts about the NCAA Basketball Tournament

Category: Best of | TipsThe List Ninja @ 18:33

As we sit down to fill out our NCAA brackets there are a few trends we should consider before we let emotion take over.  Each year, the men’s NCAA basketball tournament brackets are the hot topic for a few days to determine who will be the king of bracketology.  So remember these five facts before filling out your brackets:

·         A #16 seed has never beaten a #1 seed – Sad but true, don’t think this year will different

·         Underdogs struggle in the second round – Not always in line with the seeding so know the spread.

·         Only 6 teams ranked #1 entering the tournament have won the championship

·         Only four #2 seeds have lost in first round since 1985 – Will 2010 be #5?

·         A #1 seed has won the tournament 14 of the last 24 years.

So fill out your brackets and compete against your friends.  Will one of the players we watch this year end up on the list of the Best NBA Player ever?  Who’s the next Jordan, Magic or Bird?  Best of luck with your bracket.
