And you think Nova continues to shoot 60% or whatever ridiculous clip they were shooting at for the tourney?
Kansas was the number 1 overall seed. Nova made 4 out of 18 (22.2%) from three and sent them home. Nova can beat teams in a lot of ways. Carolina out rebounded them by 13 last night and it made no difference. Any argument you make as to why Carolina (the losing team) would beat Nova (the winning team) I can counter with just as strong an argument. The fact of the matter is this is college basketball and they play each other once. And Nova won.
Carolina beat - 16 seed - 9 seed - 5 seed - 6 seed - 10 seed then 2 seed = Loss
Nova beat - 15 seed - 7 seed - 3 seed - 1 seed - 2 seed - 1 seed
Only the 1 seeds even made Nova break a sweat.
Edit - Nova beat 3 of the current top 7 ranked Kenpom teams to win the championship. Carolina beat no one ranked higher than 15.
