Wrapping up the tournament:

Final game recap:

After setting a record for the combined margin of victory in the Final 4 games (61 points), we were not sure what to expect in the championship game with # 2 seed Villanova up against # 1 seed North Carolina.  The championship game turned out to be a great game with Villanova coming back from 5 down at halftime to win the game on a last second 3 pointer by Kris Jenkins to seal a 77-74.  Marcus Paige (UNC) made an incredible double clutch 3 pointer with 4.7 seconds left in the game to tie it before Ryan Arcidiacono drove the length of the court and kicked back to Jenkins for the game winning shot.  Phil Booth a reserve for Villanova came off the bench to score 20 points for the Wildcats to help keep them in the game.  


The 2016 All tournament team was comprised of Villanova's Ryan Booth, Josh Hart and MOP Ryan Arcidiacono, and from North Carolina, Brice Johnson & Joel Berry.


Every year we talk about how great the tournament was after conclusion and again, 2016 didn't fall too far from being another great year other than # 2 seed Michigan State going down in round 1 which caught everybody by surprise. 

Some random things coming out of this tournament.........

  •  Unlike many previous tournaments, # 2 seed Michigan State got bounced from the tournament in the very first round 90-81 by Middle Tennessee State

  •  I'm sure this record will stand for many many years, our # 1 overall pick in the draft, Denzel Valentine (Michigan State) drafted by Team SID lasted that 1 game and only scored 13 points for the tournament.  172 draft picks (out of 270) in the tournament scored more points than what Valentine produced.

  •  Syracuse and coach Jim Boeheim made it to the Final 4 as a 10 seed.  They defeated Dayton, Middle Tennessee State, Gonzaga and # 1 seed Virginia before losing to North Carolina in the semi-finals.  Coming into the NCAA tournament, the Orange had lost 5 of their previous 6 games, the only win coming against NC State who did not qualify for the NCAA tournament.  Syracuse also finished in 10th place in the ACC with a 9-9 conference record.

  •  Defending champion from 2015 Duke ended up as a # 4 seed and lost in the Sweet 16 to # 1 seed Oregon Ducks 82-68

  •  The ACC, Big 12, PAC 12 and Big 10 conferences were all awarded 7 bids for the tournament.   Similar to the 2015 tournament the ACC teams did well again in the 2016 tournament.  In 2015 the ACC went 17-5, this year they were 19-7, by far and away the best tournament performance by the teams representing the ACC.  By comparison, Big East 9-4, Big 12 9-7, Big 10 8-7 and the Pac 12 a very mediocre 4-7.

All of the scoring has been rechecked and I found NO corrections were needed
