ROUND ONE



UPSET is any lower seed winning

BIG UPSET is an upset where the teams are more than four seeds apart

CLOSE means games decided by single digits or in overtime

BLOWOUT means games decided by 20+ points

80-90-100 is the number of teams scoring at least that many points


Men's play-in games do not count. This is round of 64 vs round of 64.

For historical perspective



12 upsets was down from last year but higher than 2015

4 big upsets is the same as last year

21 close games is up from last year but lower than 2015

27 blowouts is a record high in both number and percentage of games

31 teams scoring 80+ is the highest since 2001

14 teams scoring 90+ is the highest since 1996

6 teams scoring 100+ is a record high
NOTE: The 1988 tournament had 5 100+ point games in a 40 team field, which is a higher percentage than this year

70.4 ppg is the highest since 1998. It's the first time over 70 since 2001.

Great stuff, as usual ...

The blowout % is the most interesting development -- is it an outlier or does it indicate that the college game is getting even more topheavy?

We had six straight years of more close games than blowouts from 2010-2015, then the last two tournaments have been blowout city. Weirdly, the blowouts happened in different ways. Last year it was teams not scoring, including an E8 game where a team scored under 40. This year it was teams scoring a ton, as we see in the record number of 100+ point games.
