    Duh. First one. Way to pay attention.

    I think those are the only ones, though.

    My apologies. I miscounted.

    I'm 2 for 2 and not in a good way. :/

    Since the tournament expanded to 64 teams, name the only first round matchup involving teams ranked in the top 25?

    Loyola Marymount vs. New Mexico State, 1990.

    Marymount an 11 seed only because the selection committee had to factor Hank Gathers' death into the equation.

    Who did Kansas defeat in the Elite Eight finals to get into the Final Four in 1988?

    I don't know that one (and won't cheat by looking it up), but here's another one for variety:
    After Florida and UCLA last year, and a potential G-Town-UCLA match this year, I thought, 'Jesus, good thing these aren't at a non-neutral site. That's a damn long way to travel.' But the distance between Georgetown an UCLA wouldn't be the most, mileage-wise (2600), between campuses of schools in the championship game.

    Since 1939, which championship featured the most geographically distant schools?

  12. Here's a good one -- maybe. I can only think of one state that qualifies:

    One state, four different schools, four consecutive finals fours. For example, Florida in 2007, Florida State in 2008, South Florida in 2009, Miami in 2010.
