First Four Tuesday Night Postgame Tidbits

North Carolina A&T wins their first tournament game in school history.  With their victory, Eastern Kentucky and Louisiana-Monroe now have the most tournament games without a victory with 7.

North Carolina A&T's victory is the 5th all-time for the MEAC.  It is also the first time that the MEAC has won a tournament game in consecutive years.  Norfolk State defeated Missouri in the Round of 64 last year.

Since 2001, at least one school has recorded their first tournament win each year except 2009.  North Carolina A&T is the 25th school in that time frame to capture their first tournament win.

Liberty's 72 points is their most in 3 tournament games.

Middle Tennessee State's 54 points is the fewest that St. Mary's has allowed in 10 tournament games.  The previous low was 66 vs. California in the 1959 Elite Eight.

With Middle Tennessee State losing,  Western Kentucky remains the only Sun Belt team to win a tournament game since 1993.  They have won 7 tournament games over that time frame while no other conference team has won a game.

The Sun Belt is now 1-6 as a #11 Seed.  The West Coast is 6-5 as #11 Seed.

The West Coast has now won at least one tournament game in each of the last 6 tournaments.  The longest streak in conference history is 10 from 1967 to 1976.
