KU Tourney Success Continues

About a month ago I pointed out, in this fan post, that KU had won more NCAA tournament games in the last decade (20002 - 2011) than any other school. Now with the 2012 tournament completed, how does KU stand in total tourney wins during the most recent decade (2003 – 2012)?


As you might expect, with a run to the championship game, KU is still in first place in total tourney wins 2003-2012.


Here are the top 16 teams in total NCAA tourney wins over the last decade (2003-2012):

School Conference Wins
Kansas BIG 12 28
North Carolina ACC 27
Connecticut Big East 22
Kentucky SEC 22
Duke ACC 21
Michigan State Big 10 21
Florida SEC 20
Louisville Big East 16
Syracuse Big East 16
Butler Horizon League 15
Texas BIG 12 15
UCLA PAC-12 15
Wisconsin Big 10 15
Memphis C-USA 14
Ohio State Big 10 14
Xavier A10 14


Note that this decade still includes all of the early exits to Bucknell, Bradley, Northern Iowa, and VCU. Despite all those early losses, no other team has won as many NCAA tournament games as KU over the last decade. And really, only UNC is close to KU in total tourney wins in that time period.


So when the trolls bring up Bucknell, Bradley, etc., and simply replying “Norfolk State” does not suffice, you can ask them to name another school that has won more tourney games than KU in the last 10 years. Yeah, it's a trick question but they're trolls so they deserve it.



KU, still the most successful NCAA tournament team of that last decade!!
