The only other occurrence was when UConn and Pitt met in the championship game of the 2002, 2003 and 2004 Big East postseason tournaments.
Sunday's final matches #5/5 Kansas against #6/8 Texas. This is the
second-highest combined ranking between two finalists in Big 12
history. In 2002, #4/4 Oklahoma beat #1/1 Kansas, 64-55. Both the
Jayhawks and the Sooners made the Final Four that year.
The 2008 Texas-Kansas match-up will be the fourth time in 11
tournaments that the top two seeds meet in the final. KU and Texas have
each played in two of those three meetings, including the 2006
championship game in which the Jayhawks beat the Horns, 80-68. In 2002,
2-seed Oklahoma beat 1-seed KU, 64-55, and top-seeded Oklahoma State
beat Texas, 65-49, in 2004.
