CLIPPERS NCAA TOURNAMENT BY THE NUMBERS

Take a look at the 2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament and how it relates numbers-wise to the Clippers:

8

The number of players with a school in the NCAA tournament this season, including Ryan Hollins, Matt Barnes and Darren Collison all having attended No. 4 seeded UCLA.

 

4.5

The average seed for the six schools representing Clippers’ players in the tournament. The highest seed is Jamal Crawford’s No. 2 Michigan Wolverines, while Danny Granger’s New Mexico Lobos are the lowest.

 

6

Final Four appearances made by Clippers when they were in college. Collison played in three consecutive Final Fours at UCLA from 2006-08 and Hollins, Glen Davis and J.J. Redick played in one apiece.

 

0

National Championships won by Clippers players. Collison and Hollins are the only players to have appeared in a national title game. They did so in 2006 when UCLA lost to Florida, 73-57.

 

2

Schools (Michigan and Duke) on the same side of a region with ties to Clippers players. Crawford and Redick could see their schools face off in the Sweet 16 if No. 3 Duke and No. 2 Michigan advance through the first two rounds of the Midwest Region. That is the soonest any teams representing Clippers players could meet. No. 7 New Mexico and No. 4 UCLA could play in the Elite 8 in the South Region. Otherwise, any other combinations of matchups with Clippers ties would have to come in the Final Four or Championship Monday.
