Working on a lot of things for the next couple days. Here are some random stats to ponder in the meantime.

• 0-1 as a No. 13 seed (lost to Oklahoma State in 1994)
• Never played in the South Region
• Never played an NCAA Tournament game in Portland (they are 0-1 in Oregon, losing to the Ducks in Corvalis in 1960)
• 0-1 vs. Big Ten teams in the NCAA Tournament (Michigan State in 2010) but beat current Big Ten member Nebraska in 1993 (vacated)

• 2-3 as a No. 4 seed (lost to Kent State in 2001 and Richmond in 1988 in the opening round, but won their first two games as a 4-seed in 1984)
• 6-2 in the South Region (including 5-1 run to championship game in 2002)
