First Four Tidbits - Tuesday

Texas Southern wins a First Four game for the 2nd consecutive year.  They are now 3-2 in Opening Round games (prior to Round of 64).  With the win, they become the first school to win 3 Opening Round games.

When Texas Southern has allowed fewer than 70 points in an NCAA Tournament game, they are 3-0.  When they have allowed 70 or more, they are 0-9.

With Texas Southern's win, it is the first time since 1984 that the SWAC has a tournament victory in consecutive years.

With Texas A&M-Corpus Christi losing, the Southland Conference has not won a game in consecutive tournaments since 1985.  Abilene Christian from the Southland defeated Texas last year.

Wyoming is playing in their 16th tournament.  This is only the 2nd time they have not been in the West regional.

Indiana's win over Wyoming is their first tournament win since 2016 when they defeated Kentucky 73-67 in the Round of 32.

Indiana is 2-0 on Tuesdays in the tournament.  They also defeated Louisiana State 80-67 in the 1953 National Semifinals on a Tuesday

Indiana is 3-0 in the tournament vs. the Mountain West Conference,

Indiana is 7-1 playing in the state of Ohio including 6 consecutive wins.
