    With Vanderbilt and Tennessee losing, we're guaranteed of having a Final Four featuring teams from different states (or Districts, for those in DC). Since the Final Four was established 68 years ago, there have only been six of them in which one state has claimed two or more teams in it. Three of those occasions happened from 1960-1962 with Ohio State and Cincinnati.

    In what years did the other instances occur, and what were the teams?
  2. 1975 - Kentucky and Louisville

    EDIT: Trying to remember the other two

    There has to be a Duke/UNC/N.C. State combo in there somewhere, right? Was 1991 one of those with Duke and the Tar Heels?
  5. 1977 - UNC and Charlotte

    Does Georgetown and UVa. in 1984 count?
  6. 1991 - Duke and UNC

    1991 -- Duke and Carolina is correct. Point to Oz.

    I forgot about Charlotte making it in 1977, so there's four, not three. (Checking now just to make sure there's no more beyond that).

    EDIT: G'town and UVa. doesn't count.
  8. Which is the fourth?

    The last one unnamed happened prior to the Cincy-Ohio State matchups.

    Do women count? Duke and UNC both went to last year's women's Final Four :)

    OK, so I'm probably not going to know this. It's got to be something like San Francisco and UCLA or something like that.

    Uhhh, no. And it's not USF-UCLA either.
