NEW TGS HOOPS..."OFF" CONFERENCE BIG DANCE RESULTS!

                                      by Bruce Marshall, Goldsheet.com Editor

Following are straight-up and pointspread results for all of the lower-echelon and “off” conferences in NCAA Tournament play since 1994. While straight-up wins are certainly not common for these lower-echelon conference reps in NCAA action, they are not unheard of, either, as the best of this lot has been able to cause real damage in recent years. Some of those who have famously succeeded in sub-regionals over the past decade include Mercer, North Dakota State, and Stephen F. Austin in 2014, Florida Gulf Coast in 2013, plus several others from recent memory including Morehead State, Siena, Winthrop, Bucknell, Vermont, Northwestern State, Montana, Lehigh, and Norfolk State.

Keep in mind that the lower-rung leagues have often tended to cover spreads, or not cover spread, en masse during sub-regional action. In the past two seasons, those reps have fared quite well, including last season when the listed conferences below stood 7-4 vs. the line (excluding the 16 vs. 16 play-in games), bringing their two-season spread mark since 2014 to 15-7. And while there were no straightaway upsets last season, there were in 2014, when aforementioned Mercer, North Dakota State, and Stephen F. Austin notched straight-up wins. Proceed with some caution, however, as those results have often reversed quickly in past years.

Some of these lower-echelon leagues that have tended to fare better than others in recent years. Note that SoCon entries, helped by a 4-0 spread mark by Steph Curry’s Wildcats in 2008, are 14-3-1 vs. the number their last 18 in the Dance, while America East reps have covered 6 of their last 7. Big South teams are undefeated their last four. And since 2005, Ohio Valley reps are 11-4 vs. the number. Conversely, the Big Sky is just 2-7 vs. the spread its last nine in the Dance, while the SWAC is 3-7 vs. the points it last ten. Meanwhile, the Patriot has dropped four of its last six, with heavy losses the past two seasons (American U in 2014, and Lafayette a year ago).

While each game must be handicapped upon its own specifics, tourney-wide trends such as similar spread performance by the lower-echelon leagues have recurred often enough that we suggest particular attention be paid to these teams in the Thursday action in next week’s sub-regionals, which could provide similar clues about the Friday games. We’ll have a detailed look at which of these teams to watch in our big “Tourney Preview” edition coming on Monday!
