TD 416 - HHH (Final results)

Post by clt013 » Wed Mar 27, 2019 11:32 am

With nobody else on the schedule and one request for a "madness" related quiz, I threw together this "Hoop Hoop Hooray" TD. Unless otherwise noted, these questions concern the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.

Rules/Notes
1) Lowest point total wins; your score for each question is equal to the total number of players submitting that same answer
2) You may use one drop and take zero points for that question
3) You may elect to take the sheep answer for one question
4) There is no bonus for not using the "drop" or "sheep", so you probably want to take the former and get a zero for one question
5) Wrong responses are the "sheep" answer +4
6) All answers are due by 8 AM Central time on Thursday, April 4, 2019
7) Submit answers via this Google form or PM

Questions

1. Conference Tournaments - Name a conference whose champion receives a bid to the NCAA Tournament.

2. Selection Sunday - Name a state with multiple teams in the 2019 men's tournament.

3. First Four - The opening games of the tournament are held in Dayton. Name another host city for this year's men's tournament.

4. Round of 64 - Give the team nickname (such as Anteaters, Braves, etc.) for one of these #14, #15 or #16 seeds who pulled upsets since 2000.

Bucknell
Florida Gulf Coast
Georgia State
Hampton
Harvard
Lehigh
Mercer
Middle Tennessee
Norfolk State
Northwestern State
Ohio
Stephen F. Austin
UAB
UMBC

5. Round of 32 - Name a state that has not had a school advance past this round since the field expanded to 64 teams in 1985.

6. Sweet Sixteen - Name a women's team seeded #1, #2, #3 or #4 in this year's tournament.

7. Elite Eight - Name a school to reach this round as a double digit seed since 1985. [Hint: Correct answers begin with D (2), G (2), K, L (2), M, P, S, T (2), V & X]

8. Final Four - Given their initials and the years of their first appearance with each team, name one of these coaches who has led multiple schools to the men's or women's (indicated by *) national semifinals.

I believe it's referencing the title of the question, Elite Eight.

You're right, bro. My doctor just asked me to pee in a cup, and I didn't bother to ask what for. Cost me $60 for a chlamydia test! She thought it would be covered as preventive care under the ACA. I looked that up and no - that free test only applies to women.

I am staying far, far away from this one. If there's anything I know less about than sports, it's college sports.

I do know some sports, but ixnay on college hoops and the football. I wanted to jump in and give a run at the all-sheep line, but I need three drops just from a quick look. I do know the name of all 50 states, but that's about as far as I can go. Thanks, clt, for feeding some red meat to the hoop junkies.

Cool - that leaves room at the bottom for me! My wild guesses are sure to land me there, but I like to play anyway.

Challenge accepted! My knowledge of 50 states came in very handy! See you at the sheep line Plus 5.
