Announcement Welcome to /r/CollegeBasketball. This is March Madness.


Welcome to /r/CollegeBasketball, everyone!

The clock is winding down on the final month of college basketball and fans are gathering to storm the subreddit, so before that happens we’ve got some important announcements to make:

Firstly, please review our rules, whether you are a long-time poster or just visiting for the tournament. Due to the massive increase in traffic we experience this time of year, we are calling it extra tight on removals and suspensions so make sure you’re playing it clean out there if you don’t want to get ejected for the rest of the season.

If you haven’t already, flair up!

/r/CollegeBasketball Posts (links will be updated all month)

Commenting Guidelines

As the referees that you all love to hate, here are a few of our mod teams’ Points of Emphasis:

  • We’re quick to call a technical foul on incivility. Personal attacks, harassment, flamebait, and trolling will get you ejected and there is a good chance your team gets knocked out before you get back on the court. Matching technicals can also be awarded regardless of who started it.

  • We are establishing a cylinder rule on bringing up scandals - serious or otherwise - in places where they don’t belong. Serious discussions are for serious threads, not in the heat of a game or argument.

  • We’ve expanded the restricted arc on spam and self-promotion. Your blog, youtube video, or social media link is going to get removed regardless of its content. You don’t get to advertise in our arena without prior approval.

Posting Guidelines

  • Gamethreads are handled by /u/cbbBot. Please request gamethreads using the daily Game Thread Index and be patient after games end, the bot takes ~2 minutes to generate the Post Game Thread. Just enough time to type up your witty comments.

  • We’re putting the press on low-quality text posts, images, and memes. We get absolutely flooded by posts this time of year so in order to maintain a high-quality experience for our users, your post is much more likely to get called for a lane violation. That big win for [your team here] post, the fifth bar graph meme of the day, or screenshot of a 69-69 game probably won’t fly - sorry!

  • Check to see if your post has already been posted. If someone beat you to it, help us out and delete the post so we don’t have to.

That’s all we’ve got for now. Happy March Madness, everyone!

Analysis / Statistics Caitlin Clark has just had the first 40 point triple double in NCAA tournament history


41-10-12 in the Elite Eight. It's also the first 30 point triple double.

What the fuck dude. I usually root against other B1G teams for spite reasons but I can't help rooting for Iowa because of her.

History UConn has the worst record among the remaining four teams. Since 1990, the team with the outright worst record in the Final Four (at the time) has won the tournament just once: the Arizona Wildcats in 1997 at 23-9


In 1997, the Final Four was: * Arizona: 23-9 * Kentucky: 34-4 * Minnesota: 31-3 * UNC: 28-6

2008 Kansas came close to being included, but they were tied with UCLA for having the worst record in their Final Four with both at 35-3, so it was not outright the worst record.

How the team who had the worst record at the time of the Final Four fared in the Final Four:

  • 2022: UNC lost in the Final

  • 2019: Auburn lost in Final Four
  • 2018: Kansas lost in Final Four
  • 2017: South Carolina lost in Final Four
  • 2016: Syracuse lost in Final Four
  • 2015: Michigan State lost in Final Four
  • 2014: Kentucky lost in the Final
  • 2013: Syracuse lost in Final Four
  • 2012: Louisville lost in Final Four
  • 2011: VCU lost in Final Four
  • 2010: Michigan State lost in Final Four
  • 2009: Villanova lost in Final Four
  • 2008: Kansas won the Final/UCLA lost in Final Four (same record)
  • 2007: Georgetown lost in Final Four
  • 2006: LSU lost lost in Final Four
  • 2005: Michigan State lost in Final Four
  • 2004: Georgia Tech lost in the Final
  • 2003: Kansas lost in the Final
  • 2002: Indiana lost in the Final
  • 2001: Maryland lost in Final Four
  • 2000: Wisconsin/UNC both lost in Final Four (tie)
  • 1999: Ohio State lost in Final Four
  • 1998: Stanford lost in Final Four (same # of losses but less wins than Kentucky)
  • 1997: Arizona won the Final
  • 1996: Syracuse lost in the Final
  • 1995: Oklahoma State lost in Final Four
  • 1994: Florida lost in Final Four
  • 1993: Kansas lost in Final Four
  • 1992: Michigan lost in the Final
  • 1991: Kansas lost in the Final (same losses but less wins than Duke)
  • 1990: Duke lost in the Final

Postseason Boise State looks to make history as first back to back Anti-Champions since 1947-48


What is an anti-champion?

A team that loses in the first round, and the team that beat them immediately loses, who then immediately loses, all the way down the bracket.

For example, Boise State's path the the Anti-'Ship last year: Boise St lost to Memphis> Memphis lost next game to Gonzaga> lost immediately to Arkansas> lost to Duke > lost to UNC > lost to Kansas.

If either SDSU or FAU defeat Miami in the National Championship game, Boise State repeats.

Wyoming repeated as Anti-Champs in 1947-1948 when there was only an 8 team field.

Root for history this weekend, root for the back to back Anti-Champ.
