The Greatest NCAA Tournament That Never Was–The Sweet 16 Friday

After last night’s games, we are down to just 12 teams left, and before tonight’s action ends, we will have the Elite 8.  Then, by the end of  the weekend, we’ll be down to the Final Four.

Tonight’s Sweet 16 action involves games in the Midwest and West Regions.

The number one seed in the Midwest Region has reached the Region Finals with relative ease.  The 1968 UCLA Bruins quickly dispatched 2015 Duke with a 19-4 run to begin the game.

UCLA took a 20-point lead at 34-14 after back to back baskets by Kenny Heitz and Mike Lynn.  Once down by 20 points, Duke never got closer than 15 points the rest of the way.

By the time the UCLA reserves entered the game for good, the Bruins led 74-42.  Duke ended the game on a 15-9 run.

Cougars Survive Incredible 3 OT Game–Hayes Is Magnificent

 

1968 Houston

122

3 OT

1976 Indiana

121

Elvin Hayes played 52 out of a possible 55 minutes, leading the 1968 Cougars to an incredible triple overtime win to advance to the Elite 8 against an historic rival for a shot at the Final Four on Sunday.

Hayes scored 49 points and grabbed 18 rebounds, connecting on 21-35 from the field and 7-11 at the foul line.   Forward Theodis Lee and guard Don “Duck” Chaney combined for 47 points backing up the Big E.

Indiana appeared to have the game won in the first overtime.  A basket and made foul shot by Bobby Wilkerson, followed by a three-pointer by Tom Abernathy gave the Hoosiers a 102-95 lead with 1:08 remaining.  In the final 68 seconds, Houston forced three turnovers on the Hoosiers.  Hayes hit two baskets, and a three-pointer by George Reynolds tied the game with 12 seconds remaining.   A desperation shot by Quinn Buckner at the buzzer was off target.

In the second overtime, Indiana led 111-108 and had the ball with 12 seconds to go.  Wilkerson went to the foul line with a chance to put IU up by five and missed both foul shot attempts.  Kenny Spain rebounded the ball for Houston and found Chaney open for the tying three-pointer at the buzzer.

In the third overtime, it was Houston’s turn to take the lead and watch Indiana mount a comeback.  With a 120-113 lead, the Hoosiers sent Cougar players to the foul line.  Hayes, Lee, and Chaney combined for 2-6 in the final Houston’s final three possessions.  Indiana crept back with a three-pointer by Wayne Radford and baskets by Scott May and Kent Benson to cut the Houston lead to 122-120.  After the Cougars turned the ball over, Hayed fouled Benson as Benson tried to tie the game up.  Benson hit the first shot and missed the second.  Lee rebounded and threw the outlet pass to Chaney to end the game.

Houston now faces a familiar opponent.  In reality in 1968, the Cougars beat the Bruins at the Astrodome in the Game of the Century, but UCLA blew the Cougars off the floor in the Final Four.  Very few people since realize that Reynolds did not play for Houston in the NCAA Tournament.  He has been eligible in this tournament.

Undermined Miners Scare Bracket’s Overall Top Seed But Fall Short

 

The 1972 UCLA Bruins began the game looking like they would advance to the Elite 8 with very  little trouble.  Leading 39-20, UCLA went cold, while Texas Western ran their fast break and scored 12 straight points to cut the lead to 39-32.  After Jamaal Wilkes hit a three-pointer, TW scored the final seven points of the half to cut the lead to three points.

Texas Western actually took the lead briefly in the second half when Orsten Artis hit a jumper to put the Miners of 59-58.  UCLA held a slim 68-66 lead when the Bruins went on a 12-2 run to take an 80-68 lead.  TW couldn’t cut the lead under 10 points until the final possession.

Jordan Puts Tar Heels On His Back–Carolina Going To Elite 8

 

1982 North Carolina

83

1960 Ohio St.

72

 

The 1982 North Carolina Tar Heels needed someone to step up.  Trailing 61-52 midway in the second half, Michael Jordan took matters into his own hands connecting on 6-7 from the field after making just one of his first seven shots.  Three of those six made shots were three-pointers, and he added four foul shots.  His 19 points in the final 10 minutes brought Carolina back fro the brink.  Jordan’s three-pointer with the Buckeyes leading 68-66, gave the Tar Heels their first lead of the game.  Once Ohio State was forced to foul at the end, North Carolina hit seven of eight foul shots.  Ohio State could not connect from behind the arc in crunch time, as UNC pulled away in the last two minutes to win by 11.

The Greatest NCAA Tournament That Never Was–The Sweet 16 Thursday

We are down to 16 teams in our greatest teams between 1960 and 2019. Let’s get right to the results for the Sweet 16 Games in the East and South Regions.  The Midwest and West Regions play on Friday.

 

EAST REGION

 

Wolf Pack Pull Away In Second Half

 

1974 North Carolina St.

82

1978 Kentucky

70

After a close first half, the 1974 North Carolina State Wolf Pack pulled away from the 1978 Kentucky Wildcats with a 14-5 run over four minutes that increased a two-point lead to 11.

David Thompson scored 9 of his 21 points during this run, and additionally, in this four-minute segment of the game, he forced Mike Phillips to foul him twice, and he stole the ball away from Rick Robey.

Kentucky led for most of the first half, after the Wildcats started the game connecting on seven of their first 11 shots from the field.  N.C. State turned up the defensive pressure and finished the half on a 10-3 run to take a one-point lead at the half.

After an opening seven minutes of the second half that saw the lead change hands five times, the Wolf Pack went on their run to take command of the game, and they cruised to victory.

Cavaliers’ Defense Shuts Down Hot Shooting Hoosiers

 

2019 Virginia

67

1987 Indiana

60

 

After blistering the nets in their first two NCAA Tournament games, the 1987 Indiana Hoosiers could not solve 2019 Virginia’s Pack Line Defense and shot just 35.3% from the field and 28.6% from behind the arc.

Indiana’s poor shooting night began immediately, as the Hoosiers missed on their first six attempts from the field.  They were only down 8-2 when Rick Callaway made IU’s first basket.

By the time the Hoosiers connected on their next basket, a three-pointer by Steve Alford, they trailed 12-5.

Virginia maintained the lead for the remainder of the game, never leading by less than six points.  The Cavaliers enjoyed an eight-point halftime lead, and they extended the lead to as much as 14 points in the second half at 48-34.

Indiana mounted its only charge of the game with a 13-6 run to cut the lead to 54-47, but UVa extended the lead back to 10 on a three-pointer by Kyle Guy.

Down the stretch, Virginia hit all six of their foul shots when Indiana players sent them to the line.

’70 Bruins Too Strong For ’64 Bruins

 

1970 UCLA

104

1964 UCLA

93

The 1970 UCLA Bruins are beginning to look like a Final Four contender after winning their third consecutive game by double digits in Simulated March Madness.  In their three tournament wins, their average margin of victory has been 19 points per game.

Even though the 1964 team forced 24 turnovers, the 1970 doubled the 1964 team in rebounding, and blocked 10 of the smaller 1964 team’s shots.

A hot start by their top guards, Walt Hazzard and Gail Goodrich, allowed the 1964 team to keep the game close throughout the first half.  The 1970 team grabbed the lead six minutes into the game on back-to-back shots by Sidney Wicks and John Vallely.

The 1964 team tied the game at 29-29 on a steal by Keith Erickson, and a pass to Goodrich, who then passed across to Jack Hirsch for the basket.  The 1970 then took the lead for good on a basket by Curtis Rowe and then a basket and a foul shot by Henry Bibby.

Big Comeback Sends Villanova To The Elite 8

 

2018 Villanova

78

1992 Duke

The Duke Blue Devils looked invincible for 24 minutes of their Sweet 16 game against Villanova.  Duke led by as much as 16 points in the first half, before going to the dressing room up by nine at the break.

The Blue Devils increased their halftime lead from nine to 15 to start the second half, and with 16 minutes remaining, they led 48-33.  At that point, the Wildcats began to make their move.  A three-pointer by Jalen Brunson, and then a putback basket by Eric Paschall cut the lead to 48-38.

Trailing 59-50, The Wildcats then held Duke scoreless for almost four minutes, while they scored nine straight points to tie the game at 59-59.  The game remained close until the final moments, when with Villanova nursing a four-point lead, Duke fouled multiple times, while VU connected on 8 of 8 to extend the lead to 78-69.  A Bobby Hurley three-pointer on Duke’s final possession made the game look a little closer.

The Greatest NCAA Tournament That Never Was–Round Three Sunday

Welcome back to the See BS Studio.  I’m  Bernie Johnson along with my colleagues Charles Ruffley, Clark Post, and Kenny Jones, and we’re ready to bring you the final eight games of the Round of 32.  By the end of the day, the Sweet 16 will be set.

Let’s go out to the Midwest Region, where the number one-seed UCLA Bruins of 1968 will battle the eight-seed 1962 Cincinnati Bearcats.  It should be a great matchup inside between two great centers.  So, take it away Brad Messler, Steve Blabbin, and Evan Dryburn.

Balanced Bruin Offense With 5 In Double Figures–UCLA Runs Away From Bearcats

 

1 UCLA 1968

8 Cincinnati 1962

59

After a close first half, in which the Bearcats never trailed by more than five points, UCLA pulled away with a 14-3 run in the second half and stayed 12 points or more ahead the rest of the way.

Two free throws by Tom Thacker and a three-pointer by Tony Yates gave Cincinnati their only lead of the day at 27-26 late in the first half, but UCLA countered with a three-pointer by Lynn Shackleford and an offensive putback by Kareem Abdul Jabbar to give the Bruins the lead for good.

Blue Devils Come From Behind With Big Finish To Knock Off Rival Tar Heels

 

4 Duke 2015

76

5 North Carolina 2017

66

 

After a close first half, North Carolina pulled ahead by 11 points at 49-38 after Joel Berry and Luke May hit back to back three pointers, and then a steal by May that led to a basket by Justin Jackson, gave the Tar Heels their biggest lead.  Duke then began mounting a steady comeback, cutting the lead to eight at 52-44, to five at 56-51, and finally down to just two points at 62-60.  After the teams traded one made foul shot to make it 63-61 Carolina, Matt Jones tied the game at 63-63, and then Tyus Jones drove into the lane to hit a basket and draw a foul on Theo Pinson.  After Jones made the foul shot, Duke led 66-63.  The Tar Heels could manage just one three-point basket, while they sent the Blue Devils to the foul line.  Duke hit 7 of 8 at the charity stripe to salt the game away.

Indiana Solves The Arkansas Press And Dominates On The Glass

 

Indiana looked to be vulnerable in the first half as Arkansas forced nine turnovers with their full court press, and the Razorbacks led by as much as 10 points.  In the second half, The Hoosiers did not turn the ball over in the backcourt one time and committed just five frontcourt turnovers.  Meanwhile, Indiana outrebounded Arkansas in the second half 24-9 to win going away.  Scott May scored 19 of his game high 28 points in the final half.

15-seeded Cougars Advance To Sweet 16 In Exciting Game

 

15 Houston 1968

108

10 UCLA 1975

101

In what turned out to be the most exciting game of the day, Houston and UCLA staged one of the finest offensive performances in Simulated NCAA Tournament History by combining for 209 points.

The pace of the game was fast from the onset, as the teams were tied 25-25 just eight minutes into the game.  Elvin Hayes was virtually unstoppable all day, and a 12-point scoring burst in the final six minutes of the opening half gave the Cougars a six-point halftime lead.

The teams traded the lead for most of the second half with UCLA’s last lead coming at the six minute mark at 87-86.  Houston enjoyed a quick 10-3 run to make it 96-90, and the Bruins could not overcome the run.

Overall Top Seed Romps Again

 

1 UCLA 1972

8 Connecticut 2004

61

 

The top seed in the tournament looked infallible for most of the game, as the Bruins began the game with a 16-1 lead before the Huskies could hit their first basket.  UCLA began to empty the bench in the first half once the lead swelled past 30 points, which allowed UConn to make its only run of the day cutting a 42-12 lead to 44-19 at the half.

After a 20-10 run to start the second half, the Bruins led by 35 points, when they started to remove the starters.  Until Emeka Okafor hit an old-fasioned three-pointer on the final possession, UCLA backup center Swen Nater had matched him point for point.  Nater played just 12 minutes to Okafor’s 33.

Smaller, Quicker Miners Steal Way To Victory

 

12 Texas Western 1966

71

13 Louisville 1986

59

Louisville, a team known for an excellent full court press through the years, fell victim to the man to man press by Texas Western.  The Miners stole the ball 16 times in the game, while forcing 25 Cardinal Turnovers.

After an early 8-5 Louisville lead, back to back steals by Bobby Joe Hill led to a basket and two foul shots to give the Miners their first lead at 9-8.

Later in the half, after Louisville recovered to take a 24-22 lead, steals by Willie Worsley and Orsten Artis led to easy baskets to put TW up 26-24.  A missed three-point attempt by Milt Wagner, led to a fast break basket for the Miners when Harry Flournoy grabbed the rebound and found Artis, who then passed to Willie Cager for the layup.  Up 28-24, The Miners led the rest of the way.

Louisville cut the lead from eight to three with eight minutes to play, but a 8-0 run put the game away.

Siegfried’s Three Sinks Marquette

 

3 Ohio St. 1960

72

11 Marquette 1977

70

 

Larry Siegfried connected on a three-point shot in Ohio State’s final possession to give the Buckeyes their only lead in the second half, and then a last-gasp shot by Bernard Toone missed and was rebounded by Joe Roberts to send Ohio State to the Sweet 16.

Marquette was able to slow the pace down, using up 24 to 28 seconds on the shot clock per possession and limiting Ohio State’s offensive rebounding strength.  With Bo Ellis scoring 11 of his 13 points in the first half, the Warriors led by a bucket at the break.

Butch Lee kept Marquette’s offense moving in the second half, as the Warriors kept the lead between four and seven points until the three minute mark.

After a 6-6 foul shooting mark in the first half, Marquette players missed several crucial foul shots down the stretch, as the Warriors could only hit 7 of 12 free tosses.  Ohio State rebounded the ball on all the missed foul shots, and they scored on five consecutive possessions to cut a 68-61 lead to 70-69.  After a Jim Boylan turnover, Ohio State tried to get the ball inside to Jerry Lucas or in the mid post to John Havlicek, but Marquette’s zone defense plugged the middle, forcing Siegfried to take the three-pointer as the shot clock expired.

Tar Heels Win Overtime Thriller

 

10 North Carolina 1982

86

OT

2 Kansas 2008

78

 

Darnell Jackson missed the front end of a 1 and 1 foul opportunity, and James Worthy’s field goal tied the game up at in the final seconds of regulation to force overtime.  In overtime, the Carolina Trio of Worthy, Sam Perkins, and Michael Jordan took the game over to give the Tar Heels a ticket to the Sweet 16.

Reserve forward Chris Brust came off the bench and hit two crucial baskets when Kansas had begun to stretch the lead.  Brust’s two baskets sandwiched one by Matt Doherty in a 6-1 Tar Heel mini-run that cut the KU lead to two points.  Moments later, Perkins fouled Jackson, and Jackson missed the foul shot that allowed Carolina force overtime.

The Greatest NCAA Tournament That Never Was–Round Three Saturday

Filed under: College Basketball — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — piratings @ 1:30 am

Good Saturday morning sports fans.  This is Greg Humble in the studio along with my colleagues here at See BS–Charles Parkly Clark Post, and Kenny Jones. We’re just moments away from a great slate of Saturday games, and at the end of the day four teams will punch their tickets to the Sweet 16.

We’re going to start everybody out with the top-seed in the East, the 2001 Duke Blue Devils taking on the eight seed Kentucky Wildcats of 1978.  Let’s send it out to our See BS crew, Ian Falcon, Jim Snorkel, and Jamie Herdall.

 

EAST REGION

Wildcat Inside Muscle Too Much For The Region’s Top Seed

 

9 Kentucky 1978

89

1 Duke 2001

80

Unassociated Press: The 8-Seed 1978 Kentucky Wildcats took advantage of a huge rebounding edge to hold off the top seed in the East, the 2001 Duke Blue Devils.  The Wildcats enjoyed a huge 51-30 rebounding advantage with the Blue Mist’s Twin Towers both recording double figure boards.

Kentucky broke open a close game midway through the second half.  With a 56-53 lead, the Wildcats went on a 16-5 run to take a commanding 72-58 lead.  Duke frantically mounted a comeback with three-pointers from Jay Williams, Mike Dunleavy, and Nate James to cut the lead to 76-70, but the Wildcats chose to keep the ball in the hands of Kyle Macy down the stretch, and Duke was forced to foul one of the all time great foul shooters.

Tiny Towe Blitz’s Cardinals Press To Lead Pack To Impressive Win

 

4 North Carolina St. 1974

96

12 Louisville 1980

82

 

Unassociated Press: Five foot, six inch guard Monte Towe proved to be impossible to trap by the vaunted Louisville 2-2-1 press defense.  Time and time again, he broke the press and drove until he found an open teammate, forcing Louisville to call the press off.  By the time the Cardinals stopped pressing, the Wolf Pack had turned the ball over twice, but they scored easy baskets or went to the foul line enough times to take a 10-point lead in the first 12 minutes of the game.

A three-minute stretch to end the first half found N.C. State turning the ball over in their own halfcourt four times, while Louisville warmed up from the field and cut the lead to two points.

The Wolf Pack maintained the lead throughout the second half, and once they held a five point lead, they forced Louisville to foul down the stretch, where Towe was 8 of 8 at the charity stripe in the final minutes to preserve the win.

1974 North Carolina State now faces 1978 Kentucky in the Sweet 16 in what should be an incredible matchup, as the two teams have similar styles.  David Thompson and Jack Givens should be worth the price of admission.

Cavaliers Put Hoyas To Sleep With Slow Pace

 

3 Virginia 2019

60

14 Georgetown 1984

52

Unassociated Press: The 2019 Virginia Cavaliers slowed the game down to 59 possessions, forcing Georgetown to pass away from Patrick Ewing, and then trapping Ewing when he caught the ball in the post.  The tactic worked, as Ewing could only take seven shots in 35 minutes of action.

This had the look of a game where both teams would struggle to score 40 points, as neither team could solve the other’s defense.  Eight minutes into the game, Georgetown led 7-6.  At this point, Braxton Key entered the game for Virginia and gave the Wahoo offense a shot in the arm with six quick points to give the Cavaliers a 16-13 lead, a lead they would not relinquish.

Virginia held the Hoyas to 34.6% shooting in the second half, as Ewing could only score one basket in the final stanza.

Hoosiers Limit Mistakes, Play Excellent Defense In Impressive Win

 

10 Indiana 1987

78

2 North Carolina 2005

63

Unassociated Press: The Hoosiers committed just seven turnovers while limiting North Carolina to 40.7% shooting.  Indiana opened a 15-point lead in the first half, and North Carolina never cut the lead to single digits, getting to within 10 points three times.

The Tar Heel starting front court was held to 10-26 shooting, while the Hoosiers’ front court was 17-34.

This sets up an interesting Sweet 16 game between 1987 Indiana and 2019 Virginia Thursday night.

Top Seed Falls To Quick Bruin Quintet

 

8 UCLA 1964

1 Kentucky 1996

89

 

Unassociated Press: UCLA’s great backcourt duo of Walt Hazzard and Gail Goodrich combined for 61 points, and the UCLA full-court press was just as devastating as Kentucky’s matchup press.

Kentucky led for most of the first half and the first six minutes of the second half.  With the Wildcats ahead 61-54, the Bruins reeled off 14 point in the next three minutes to take a 68-66 lead.  After Kentucky tied the score at 68-68, back-to-back three point field goals by Hazzard gave UCLA the lead for good.

Bruin Muscle Proves Too Much For Cardinals

 

4 UCLA 1970

100

5 Louisville 2013

82

Unassociated Press:  The trio of Steve Patterson, Sidney Wicks, and Curtis Rowe flexed their muscles, scoring almost at will at times in the paint and getting multiple offensive rebounds with putbacks.

After beginning the game matching baskets, the score was knotted at 17-17 with 12 minutes to go in the first half.  UCLA opened a 12-point lead in the next eight minutes, and Louisville could get no closer than seven points the rest of the way.

When the Cardinals cut the lead to seven at 69-62, a Bruin 9-2 run moved the lead out to 14, and Louisville began to rush their offense, committing crucial turnovers that allowed the lead to ballon to 21 points at one point.

The 1970 Bruins now face the 1964 UCLA Bruins in a game of contrasts between 1964’s speed and 1970’s muscle.

Grant Hill Puts Blue Devils’ Hopes On His Shoulder To Bring Duke Back To Victory

 

6 Duke 1992

78

14 Kansas 1997

73

 

Unassociated Press: In a game with many twists and turns, Duke blew a 10-point first half lead and trailed by as many as nine points in the second half until Grant Hill took control of the game, scoring 14 of his game high 20 points in the final 11 minutes of the game.

Kansas went on a 24-7 scoring run that covered the last six minutes of the first half and first four minutes of the second half to take a 49-42 lead.  After Duke cut the lead to three several times, the Jayhawks scored six straight points to take a 59-50.  That’s when Hill went to work, scoring 14 of Dukes’ final 28 points.

Wildcats Hot For Three Minutes, But It’s Enough To Advance

 

2 Villanova 2018

64

7 Florida 2007

51

 

Unassociated Press: Villanova couldn’t buy a basket for 3/4 of the game, but then neither could the Gators as both teams had trouble finding the range.  Then, a brief barrage of baskets on 4 of 7 shooting that included a couple of three-point shots broke open a close game to allow ‘Nova to pull away to a safe lead.  Leading just 39-38 in the second half, an 11-0 run gave The Wildcats a 12-point lead.  Florida never could mount a move at this point, and Villanova cruised to victory.

Villanova advances to Thursday’s Sweet 16 round against 1992 Duke.

Terps Ride Big Offensive Night From Lucas

 

1974 Maryland

95

1970 Florida St.

85

 

Unassociated Press: The 1974 Maryland Terrapins played 37 minutes of up-tempo basketball before slowing the game down during the final three minutes to hold off the 1970 Florida State Seminoles 95-85.  Star guard John Lucas was virtually unstoppable, leading Coach Lefty Driesell’s Terps with 25 points, while narrowly missing a double-double with nine assists.  His three steals led to seven Maryland points.

Florida State stayed within striking distance thanks to strong offensive rebounding, but the Seminoles committed 22 turnovers, 10 of them via steals and never could get within six points in the second half.

Maryland advances to the South Region as the 16-seed and will face top-seed Kentucky 1996 on Thursday.

March 15, 2020

The Greatest March Madness That Never Was

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 Men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament, we cannot issue our great Bracketnomics 505 Course for 2020.  2020 figured to be the year where we debuted many new pieces to our bracket-picking formula, as we spent well dozens of days researching and back-testing data, as well as research what we call the morphing of the game, where one style of play became more successful over another style of play, and where one metric proved more accurate in predicting March Madness success over other metrics.   

Alas, all that research must now go into hibernation until such a time that an NCAA Tournament can be played.  If the tournament re-schedules to May, June, July, or August, we will not issue a Bracketnomics tutorial, since this will be totally uncharted water.  We hear that the NCAA is trying to salvage something by possibly conducting a 16-team tournament much like the old NIT where all 16 teams gather in one venue.  This was the last gasp plan before the tournament was  completely cancelled, and there is talk that the top 16 teams, which would have been the top four seeds in each region could still be put into one venue for five days, just like 16 teams played at Madison Square Garden.

Our unique plan would be to play a tournament like this outdoors in a warm weather and dry climate where rain would not be a factor.  Games have been played outdoors in the past, including in the Olympics.

In place of the real tournament, The PiRate Selection Committee has seeded 68 of the greatest  teams in modern day history in the “Greatest NCAA Tournament That Never Was.”

This simulated tournament will consist of 44 past National Champions and the best teams that fell a little short.  The only rules in our selection system is that no single school can have teams picked from consecutive seasons.  That means that we could not award all three of Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s UCLA teams bids.  And, because the 1968 team rates the highest of the three, we did not select the 1967 and 1969 Bruins in order to get the great 1968 team.

Additionally, because we wanted National Champions first and foremost, great teams like the 1975 Indiana Hoosiers and 1991 UNLV Runnin’ Rebels were ineligible for the tournament, since the 1976 IU and 1990 UNLV teams received automatic bids.

 
Four regions with 17 teams in each region have been seeded and games have been scheduled, starting Tuesday night with two first round games in Dayton, Ohio.

These games will be played via a tabletop game created by our Captain and inspired by the Avalon Hill/Sports Illustrated Professional Game called Statis-Pro Basketball.  If you want to take a peak at this out of print game, go to the following link:  https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/4453/statis-pro-basketball

The Captain is the utmost sports boardgame geek.  Games like the one above and Strat-O-Matic Baseball led to his falling in love with statistics.  The Captain cracked the ratings codes for many of these games, including Statis-Pro,  and he decided to create his own college version of the game.  He even added three-point shooting to the game with the addition of a few simple rules, and voila, he had created a homemade board game that supplied him (and friends) with many hours of great fun.  Teams were made from the 1960’s through the 1980’s and later into the 1990’s.  After many years of use, when Mrs. PiRate placed the ring on his finger, the game was put away in a storage closet in the Captain’s basement.  When the Coronavirus claimed almost all sports as its victims, the Captain’s Lady thought it might be a good idea for him to play out a tournament by using the old game and reporting the results on this website.

The first thought was to make 68 teams from the 2020 season based on regular season conference champions and at-large teams that his bracketology showed to be the right 68.  There was a problem with that, because he could not make 68 new teams from 2020 and play this tournament beginning Tuesday, as it would be April before he could make 68 teams.  So, since he had dozens of the greatest teams from 1960 to about 1997, he only needed to update the set of teams from 1998 to 2019, which he spent most of Thursday and Friday and some of Saturday night making.  The 68 teams have been chosen and are ready to begin “The Greatest NCAA Basketball Tournament Never Played.”

The Selection Committee, otherwise known as the Simple Rating System at Sports Reference, has chosen and seeded the field.  Let’s get to it.

First, we began with the East Region. These games will be played in Hartford, Connecticut, on Thursday and will not be broadcast on CBS.  Our PiRate Ratings Network is “See BS.”

The number one seed in the East Region is—————- 

The 2001 Duke Blue Devils.   Coach Mike Krzyzewski has a roster stacked with talent, including Shane Battier, Jay Williams, and Mike Dunleavy.

Duke will play the winner of the 16-seeded play-in game Tuesday night between the 1984 North Carolina Tar Heels, with eight McDonald’s All-Americans on the roster, and the 1970 St. Bonaventure Bonnies.  Just so you know, Bob Lanier will be healthy for all NCAA Tournament games St. Bonaventure plays. In real life, Lanier’s injury in the Eastern Regional Final cost his team any chance to compete against Jacksonville in the National Semifinal Game.

The number eight seed is the 1979 Michigan State Spartans featuring the great Magic Johnson. They will play the nine-seed Kentucky Wildcats of 1978.  This was Wildcats’ coach Joe B. Hall’s lone national title with a team featuring Jack “Goose” Givens and the Twin Towers of Rick Robey and Mike Phillips.

The number four seed is the 1974 North Carolina State Wolf Pack, with Norm Sloan coaching the great David Thompson along with tiny Monte Towe and huge Tom Burleson. NC State will play the number 13 seed 1999 Duke Blue Devils, one of the at-large non-national champions.  This Blue Devil team had eight McDonald’s All-Americans, including Trajan Langdon, Shane Battier, and Elton Brand.

And, the final game in this Hartford pod features the number five-seed 1999 Connecticut Huskies.  UConn was led by Richard Hamilton and Khalid El-Amin.  The Huskies will be  playing the number 12-seed Louisville Cardinals of 1980 with the great Darrell Griffith leading the way.

Now, let’s go to the bottom half of the bracket in the East Region. These games will take place in Greensboro, North Carolina, at the Greensboro Coliseum on Friday.

The number three-seed Virginia Cavaliers of 2019, the team that avenged the embarrassment of being the first number one seed to lose to a 16-seed in 2018 by winning the national championship in 2019.  The Wahoos will take on the number 14-seed Arkansas Razorbacks of 1991, another at-large team that failed to win the national championship.  This Razorback squad featured three big stars in Todd May, Lee Mayberry, and Oliver Miller.

The next game features the number six-seed Villanova Wildcats of 2016 playing the number 11-seed Georgetown Hoyas of 1984, two hot rivals that won national championships. In this simulation, trying not to have multiple teams from the same school in each region was more important than having teams from the same conference playing each other, and that is why two Big East teams are playing in their first game.

Let’s move on. The number seven-seed UCLA Bruins of 1995 will play the number 10-seed Indiana Hoosiers of 1987, the team that won the title on a last second shot by Keith Smart.  And, rounding out the East Region, the number two-seed North Carolina Tar Heels of 2005 will take on the number 15-seed Ohio State Buckeyes of 1962, a heavy favorite that lost their national championship game that year to in-state rival Cincinnati, in a game played by the previous two national champions.

East Region

Play-in Round for #16 Seed
North Carolina 1984 vs. St. Bonaventure 1970

1-Duke 2001 vs. 16-UNC/St. Bonaventure
8-Michigan St. 1979 vs. 9-Kentucky 1978
4-North Carolina St. 1974 vs. 13-Duke 1999
5-Connecticut 1999 vs. 12-Louisville 1980
3-Virginia 2019 vs. 14-Arkansas 1991
6-Villanova 2016 vs. 11-Georgetown 1984
7-UCLA 1995 vs. 10-Indiana 1987
2-North Carolina 2005 vs. 15-Ohio St. 1962

Now, let’s look at the South Region. These next four games will play Thursday at Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, Tennessee. The top seed in the South is the 1996 Kentucky Wildcats. Rick Pitino finally won his first national championship with a team loaded with talent that could go 10-deep without the Wildcats missing a beat.

 

The Big Blue will play the winner of the play-in round Tuesday night between the 1974 Maryland Terrapins and the 1970 Florida State Seminoles. Maryland did not make the NCAA Tournament, and partly because one of the top three teams in the nation was just the number two team in the ACC, the NCAA expanded to 32 teams in 1975 and began to allow two teams from each conference to make the tournament. The 1970 Seminoles were definitely one of the top teams in the nation, but they were on probation and ineligible for the tournament that year. In our simulation world, a great team with the terrific Dave Cowens is getting a ticket to this dance.

 

The next game in this pod features the number eight-seed UCLA Bruins of 1964, featuring Walt Hazzard, Gail Goodrich, and Keith Erickson. They will face the nine-seed Indiana Hoosiers of 1981 with the great Isaiah Thomas in what should be an excellent study in contrasts.

 

Moving on, the number four-seed is the 1970 UCLA Bruins, the semi-surprise champion in Westwood after Kareem Abdul Jabbar graduated. They will play the number 13-seed Oklahoma Sooners of 1988, another at-large non-champion.

 

Rounding out this pod, the number five-seed is the 2013 Louisville Cardinals, and they will take on the 12-seed North Carolina State Wolf Pack of 1983, the Cinderella champion of the great Jim Valvano.

 

The other half of the pod in the South Region will take place in Chicago on Friday at the United Center. The number three-seed North Carolina Tar Heels of 2009 will play the number 14-seed Kansas Jayhawks of 1997, another at-large power that did not win the national championship. Coach Roy Williams of the Tar Heels will go up against Coach Roy Williams of the Jayhawks.

The number six-seed is the 1992 Duke Blue Devils, and Coach Mike Krzyzewski’s second ever champion will take on the number 11-seed Connecticut Huskies of 2014, a team that almost lost their first tournament game in real life and won it in overtime before reeling off five more victories.

The number seven-seed is the 2007 Florida Gators, the better of Billy Donovan’s consecutive national champions. Florida will play the number 10-seed Syracuse Orangemen on 2003.

And,  rounding out the South Region, the number two-seed Villanova Wildcats of 2018 will play the number 15-seed Illinois Fighting Illini of 2005, another at-large team that came up a few minutes short in the title game.

Half the field is now chosen. Are you hoping your favorite team will make this dance? If they won the national championship, and it isn’t a consecutive season from another national championship, they will be in the field, but there are still eight at-large teams that will be in one of the final two regions.

 

South Region

2-Villanova 2018 vs. 15-Illinois 2005

Let’s go to the Midwest Region. These four games will be played on Friday at the KFC Yum Center in Louisville, Kentucky. The top seed in the Midwest is the 1968 UCLA Bruins, the best of the three seasons when Kareem Abdul Jabbar was in Westwood. The Bruins will face the winner of Wednesday’s play-in round game in Dayton between the 2008 Memphis Tigers and the 1973 Providence Friars. This Providence team will have a healthy Marvin Barnes, unlike the team that lost to Memphis State in the Final Four.

 

The number eight seed is the 1962 Cincinnati Bearcats, the repeat national champion that beat in-state rival Ohio State for the second year in a row. Cinti will take on the number nine-seed Loyola of Chicago Ramblers of 1963, the closest opening round game that was actually played in a national championship.

 

The number four seed in the Midwest is the 2015 Duke Blue Devils, Coach K’s most recent national champion. Duke plays the number 13-seed Connecticut Huskies of 2011 led by the incredible Kemba Walker.

 

The number five seed is the 2017 North Carolina Tar Heels, and Roy Williams’ squad will face the 12-seed Villanova Wildcats of 1985, one of the biggest upset winners in national championship game history.

 

Now moving on to the bottom half of this region’s bracket, these four games will take place Thursday in Kansas City. The number three seed is the 1976 Indiana Hoosiers, Coach Bob Knight’s first title team and the last team to go undefeated. Their opponent is the number 14-seed Stanford Cardinal of 2001, another of the at-large teams that did not win the national championship.

 

The number six seed is the 1994 Arkansas Razorbacks, and Arkansas will take on the number 11-seed Kansas Jayhawks of 1988, the surprise national champion led by the great Danny Manning.

 

The number seven seed is the 1998 Kentucky Wildcats, the team led by Coach Tubby Smith. The Big Blue will face the 10-seed UCLA Bruins of 1975, Coach Wooden’s final national champion.

 

Rounding out the Midwest Region, the number two seed Michigan Wolverines of 1989 will play the number 15-seed Houston Cougars of 1968, another at-large team that did not win the national title, featuring the Big E, Elvin Hayes, and Donald “Duck” Chaney.

That’s three regions down and just one to go. Here’s the seeding for the West Region. These next four games will take place at the Key Arena in Seattle on Friday. The number one seed and the top seed in the entire tournament is the 1972 UCLA Bruins, led by Bill Walton, Jamaal Wilkes, and Henry Bibby. They will face the winner of Wednesday’s play-in game in Dayton between 16-seeds 1972 North Carolina and 1983 Houston, two teams that fell a tad short in the Final Four.

 

The number eight seed Connecticut Huskies of 2004 led by Emeka Okafor will face the nine-seed Arizona Wildcats of 1997, Coach Lute Olson’s lone national champion.

 

The number four seed is the 2000 Michigan State Spartans, the last Big Ten team to win the title. Sparty will face the number 13-seed 1986 Louisville Cardinals with Never Nervous Pervis Ellison.

 

The number five seed is the 2012 Kentucky Wildcats, John Calipari’s national championship team. Kentucky will play the 12-seed Texas Western Miners of 1966, a team that spoiled another Kentucky team’s hopes and dreams.

 

And in the last pod, these games that will be played Thursday at the Marriott Center in Provo, Utah.  The number three seed is the 1960 Ohio State Buckeyes with Jerry Lucas, John Havlicek, and Larry Siegfried. The Buckeyes will square off against the number 14-seed Cincinnati Bearcats of 1960, an exact match from the 1960 Final Four. This is the Cinti team led by one of the all-time greats in the Big O, Oscar Robertson.

 

The number six seed is the 1990 UNLV Runnin’ Rebels, the team that holds the record for largest margin of victory in the National Championship Game. The Rebels will face the number 11-seed Marquette Warriors of 1977, Coach Al McGuire’s only national champions that came in his final year of coaching.

 

The number seven seed is the 2002 Maryland Terrapins, and the Terps will face the 10-seed 1982 North Carolina Tar Heels, featuring the great Michael Jordan, along with James Worthy and Sam Perkins.

 

And, finally, rounding out the field of 68, the two seed is the 2008 Kansas Jayhawks, and Rock Chalk, Jayhawk, KU faces the 15-seed Gonzaga Bulldogs of 2017, the last of our at-large field.

Who were the teams that just barely missed out on getting into this dance?

The First Four Out were in order, the 1975 Kentucky Wildcats, the 1986 Duke Blue Devils, the 1993 Michigan Wolverines, and the 1969 Purdue Boilermakers.

The Next Four Out were the 2007 Ohio State Buckeyes, the 1996 Massachusetts Minutemen, the 1960 California Golden Bears, and the 1989 Seton Hall Pirates.

We’ll be back Tuesday Night with the results of the first two games in Dayton.
