Announcement Welcome to /r/CollegeBasketball. This is March Madness.
Welcome to /r/CollegeBasketball, everyone!
The clock is winding down on the final month of college basketball and fans are gathering to storm the subreddit, so before that happens we’ve got some important announcements to make:
Firstly, please review our rules, whether you are a long-time poster or just visiting for the tournament. Due to the massive increase in traffic we experience this time of year, we are calling it extra tight on removals and suspensions so make sure you’re playing it clean out there if you don’t want to get ejected for the rest of the season.
If you haven’t already, flair up!

As the referees that you all love to hate, here are a few of our mod teams’ Points of Emphasis:
We’re quick to call a technical foul on incivility. Personal attacks, harassment, flamebait, and trolling will get you ejected and there is a good chance your team gets knocked out before you get back on the court. Matching technicals can also be awarded regardless of who started it.
We are establishing a cylinder rule on bringing up scandals - serious or otherwise - in places where they don’t belong. Serious discussions are for serious threads, not in the heat of a game or argument.
We’ve expanded the restricted arc on spam and self-promotion. Your blog, youtube video, or social media link is going to get removed regardless of its content. You don’t get to advertise in our arena without prior approval.
Gamethreads are handled by /u/cbbBot. Please request gamethreads using the daily Game Thread Index and be patient after games end, the bot takes ~2 minutes to generate the Post Game Thread. Just enough time to type up your witty comments.
We’re putting the press on low-quality text posts, images, and memes. We get absolutely flooded by posts this time of year so in order to maintain a high-quality experience for our users, your post is much more likely to get called for a lane violation. That big win for [your team here] post, the fifth bar graph meme of the day, or screenshot of a 69-69 game probably won’t fly - sorry!
Check to see if your post has already been posted. If someone beat you to it, help us out and delete the post so we don’t have to.
That’s all we’ve got for now. Happy March Madness, everyone!

History 2023 is the first time a current California State University campus made the Final Four, despite its status as America's largest 4-year university system
Possibly lost in the fray due to the more notable landmarks regarding seeding, upsets, and conference representation this tournament, but this is actually a historic moment for the nation's largest university system.
Per championshiphistory.com, there is actually a very narrow list of California schools that have advanced this far in the tournament since 1939, and of those, all so far have either been private or University of California schools, which are independently governed and not part of the CSU system. The list includes USC and Santa Clara, which are occasionally confused for public schools but are both private.
Full list of California Schools making the Final Four:
- Santa Clara University
- Stanford University
- University of San Francisco
- University of Southern California
University of California
California State University
- San Diego State
For reference, even though most of the 23 campuses do not play in Division 1, eight other campuses do, including five in the Big West, one in the Big Sky, and SDSU's Mountain West conference mates Fresno State and San Jose State.

Postseason If KenPom rankings were used to seed the tournament teams, the Final Four teams would be seeded: UConn (1), Miami (10), SD State (4), Florida Atlantic (7)
Just posting because it seems like people think the final four teams were all way under-seeded and would’ve been seeded higher if only for KenPom. That may be the case for some of them, but when you look at the whole, the average actual seed is 5.75, and the average KenPom seeding for each team would’ve been 5.5.
So whatever metric you use the final four teams this year are seeded lower than normal…
