Another NCAA Tournament has come and gone. With some down time until the 2019-20 season starts, there’s the opportunity to crunch numbers and try to make sense of what happened during those three days in March at the PPG Paints Arena. Today we’ve decided to look at the 2019 NCAA Championships, along with the four NCAA Tournaments preceding that one, to find out which teams perform best when the stakes are the highest, in the NCAA quarterfinals, Round of 12, semifinals, and the NCAA Finals. Of course, there are plenty of factors that go into these records and many different conclusions that can be reached judging by some of these figures. For now though, we are just presenting the numbers for the 2015-19 NCAA Championships. If you do not see a team listed in a particular category, they may have not had enough matches in that round to qualify.

Be sure to check by in with these numbers when filling out your 2020 brackets!
