In the Elite Eight this year, one conferences is represented by 2 teams: the Big 12, with, Kansas and Texas.  The other conferences represented are: the ACC (North Carolina);  the Big East (Louisville);  the Atlantic 10 (Xavier);   the Southern Conference (Davidson);  Conference USA (Memphis);  and the Pac-10 (UCLA).

There are all four #1 seeds,  just one #2 seed,  two #3 seeds,  and one #10 seed (Davidson).

The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament was formed in 1939.  The term “March Madness” came into common currency in the mid-1980′s.  I found an interesting entry from Wikipedia, about the origins of the term “March Madness.”  To see it, click here.
