NCAA Tournament by the numbers: Basketball, betting and business
Today’s question: Eight teams in NCAA Division I Basketball Tournament history have won the title in back-to-back years, including UCLA’s remarkable string from 1967-73. Which schools were the first and the most recent ones to repeat and in what years did they do it?
Yesterday’s question and answer: In 1985, the Cardinals were in the World Series against the Royals. A controversial call in the ninth inning started the unraveling of the Cardinals. Which Royal was called safe at first even though a replay showed he was out? The answer is Jorge Orta: After the controversial call on Orta, the next batter, Steve Balboni, hit a pop-up that neither Darrell Porter or Jack Clark could catch. The Royals won game six 2-1, and game seven 11-0.
