As most probably know the champion must win 6 straight games in the tourney. Using today's ESPN basketball top 10 I checked on how many of the top 10 have even won 6 straight games in the month of February. I use February because those games ratchet up in intensity closest to March Madness as opposed to games played November-January.
For reference, all teams played either 8 or 9 games in February with Creighton being the exception. The Blue Jays only played 6. Only four teams won at least 6 straight games in February. The top 2 ranked teams in the country, Florida and Wichita St. Louisville went 8-0 and only had to beat one ranked team which was Cincinnati. And the fourth team was #10 Saint Louis who last night lost their final game in February.
Just a little perspective on something I used to say on radio all the time regarding ALL sports. "IT'S HARD TO WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS !"
