Handicapping the Sweet Sixteen based on travel

03.22.2011     11:35 AM     Printer Friendly

Interesting blog by Nate Silver breaking down the straight up records of NCAA Tournament teams based on the distance they travel. For example, since 2003, teams that traveled 50 miles or less are 24-2, 92% -- one of those defeats was last year when Butler lost to Duke in the National Championship. Teams that travel at least 1,000 miles (see: Duke and UConn @ Anaheim) have won just 41% of the time. And teams that are closer to the venue compared to their opponents emerged victorious at a 59% clip. San Diego State has the shortest trip of any of the 16 teams with just 100 miles to Anaheim. Note that the blog was written prior to the start of this year's NCAA Tournament.
