NCAA Tourney: End of first round conference records

Submitted by trueblueintexas on March 23rd, 2013 at 2:53 AM
One of the things I look at every year is conference records after each round. I always think this is one of the best indicators of how the conferences really stack up against each other. Granted match-ups have a lot to do with who wins and loses, I still think it is a good indicator of conference strength. Chart? Chart. Conference # of Bids Record Win % R64 R32 Big Ten 7 6-1 .857 7 6 Atlantic 10 5 5-0 1.000 5 5 ACC 4 3-1 .750 4 3 Pac-12 5 3- 2 .600 5 3 Big East 8 3-5 .375 8 3 MVC. 2 2-0 1.000 2 2 SEC 3 2-1 .667 3 2 Big 12 5 2-3 .400 5 2 Mountain West5 2-3 .400 4 2 Atlantic Sun 1 1-0 1.000 1 1 C-USA. 1 1-0 1.000 1 1 Ivy 1 1-0 1.000 1 1 WCC 2 2-1 .667 2 1 By the end of the tournament the Big East will always have more loses because they get the most teams in, but 3-5 in round one is really bad, especially when you add in the Georgetown upset since a 2 seed is usually good for at least one more win in the round of 32. Other things of note: big props to the A10 and MVC. The SEC showed up better than they did in the NIT. The Big 12 is showing some signs of weakness as K State and Ok St we're the second and third place teams in the conference. Yay for the B1G (even with Arggggggggggh Wisconsin). EDIT: not sure what happened to my char formatting. Will need to fix in the morning since it is already 3 AM and my little one will be waking up in 4 hours. Also, should not have done this on my iPad apparently.
