While watching the tournament, I would always wonder about how teams had fared in various situations in tournament history. I could not find anywhere that had the amount of information that I needed. So I set out to research and create a database of every tournament game. I started this project in 1992. In 1999, I first published my results on the internet. In 2000, I started HoopsTournament.Net.
I continue to add to the website each year. It started with adding additional data. My current focus is creating a page for each team. The page includes the following items:
- Game by Game results of every tournament game for that team
- Records by that team in different situations (such as record on Thursday, vs. the Big Ten, etc.)
- Link to the team's official basketball home page
- Link to the team's official conference basketball home page
- Link to the team's most popular message board
- News feed
I also started a page on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/HoopsTournamentNet/80737753813 and on twitter at http://twitter.com/HoopsTournNet. I will share links, retweets from others that I follow and post one-line facts while watching the tournament games on these pages.
If you have any comments on ways to improve the website, please feel free to let me know. I want this to be the most comprehensive resource for NCAA Tournament History on the internet.
