BIG EAST CONFERENCE 1984-'85: 9 TEAMS

 

Eight-seed Villanova, coached by Rollie Massimino, won the national title with a 66–64 victory in the final game over Georgetown of Pat Ewing, coached by John Thompson. Ed Pinckney of Villanova was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player. The game is often cited among the greatest upsets in college basketball history. This Villanova team remains the lowest-seeded team to win the tournament. The game is also notable as the last played without a shot clock.

This year's Final Four saw an unprecedented and unmatched three teams from the Big East Conference, with Villanova and Georgetown joined also by St. John's. The only "interloper" in the Big East party was Memphis State, then of the Metro Conference. 

The 1985 Big East Conference Tournament took place at Madison Square Garden in New York City. It was a single-elimination tournament with four rounds. St. John's had the best regular season conference record and received the #1 seed. Georgetown defeated St. John's in the championship game 92–80, to claim its second straight Big East Tournament championship, and fourth overall.

The 2012 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament began on March 13, 2012, and concluded with Kentucky winning the championship game on April 2 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. For the first time in NCAA Tournament history, two #2 seeds (Duke and Missouri) were knocked out by #15 seeds (Lehigh and Norfolk State) in the Round of 64. Also for the first time, three teams seeded 13 and lower moved on from the Round of 64 in one day.

Two teams made their first NCAA tournament appearances in school history: MEAC champion Norfolk State and Summit League champion South Dakota State

All four teams from the state of Ohio (Cincinnati, Ohio, Ohio State, and Xavier) made it to the Sweet 16, marking the first time in tournament history any state has been represented by four teams in the round of 16. This tournament was also the first tournament since 1985 to feature no teams in the Sweet 16 from the Mountain or Pacific Time Zones.

It is also the first tournament ever that both national semifinals and the national championship game were regular season rematches.

Kentucky won the championship over Kansas by the score of 67–59, earning their 8th NCAA title and coach John Calipari's first.

NCAA TOURNAMENT SWEET SIXTEEN 2010-'11: 16 TEAMS

 

The 2010-'11 NCAA tournament was notable for its large number of upsets. In the Southwest region, Florida State (a 10 seed), Virginia Commonwealth (11) and Richmond (12) made the regional semifinals. This marked the first time in the history of the tournament that a region was represented by three double-digit seeds in the Sweet Sixteen. The tournament featured the first Final Four to not have one of the top two seeds from any of the four regions. VCU tied 11th-seeded LSU in 1986 and George Mason in 2006 as the lowest seeds ever to reach the Final Four. The semifinal game between VCU and Butler, an 8 seed, had the greatest seed number total of any Final Four matchup in history (19, surpassing the previous mark of 14 set in 1980 and matched in 2006). The Final Four as a whole similarly had the greatest seed number total ever (26, surpassing the previous mark of 22 set in 2000). Butler, making its second straight appearance in the final, tied 8th-seeded UCLA in 1980 and Villanova in 1985 as the lowest seeds ever to reach the championship game. Also, it should be noted that the city of Richmond, VA came into the national spotlight when its two teams Virginia Commonwealth and University of Richmond made it into the Sweet 16, a feat last achieved by Los Angeles in 2007.

This tournament was also notable for the struggle of the Big East, which had a record eleven (11) teams qualify for the tournament. Due to having more than eight teams in the tournament, it was possible for intra-Big East matchups to occur in the 3rd round. The Big East had only two (2) of the eleven (11) teams make it to the Sweet 16, and only because there were two intra-Big East matchups in the 3rd round. It should be noted that the eventual national champion was a Big East Team (UConn).
