NCAA Conference results

The bottom line for the NCAA tournament is to find out which of the 68 teams competing is the best or at least plays better than any other does, over a period of three weeks.

However, the results from the tournament can be used in measuring the strength of the different conferences in the country.

Only eight teams remain of the 68 and three conferences have fared better than any others have. Those three are the Big Ten, SEC and the Pac-12. The Big Ten has three of its teams – Michigan State, Michigan and Wisconsin still playing, while the SEC has Florida and Kentucky. The Pac-12 has Arizona and eight wins to date.

The American Athletic Conference has Connecticut in the last eight after defeating Iowa State.

The Atlantic 10 leads the other end of the line with a disappointing tournament except for Elite Eight member Dayton, which needs just one more win to reach the Final Four. However, overall, the conference is 4-5.

The ACC has six wins, but did not put a team in the Elite Eight, while the Big 12 the was country’s top RPI conference but does not have a representative in the final eight teams.

Here are the top ten conferences in the tournament, with overall tournament record / teams still alive.

SEC 9-1 / 2 – Kentucky and Florida

Big Ten 9-3 / 3 – Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin
