TGS NCAA TOURNEY UPDATE...LOW-MAJORS HISTORY IN DANCE!

by Bruce Marshall, Goldsheet.com Editor

As we are often asked for more specifics on the "low- major" entries that apepar each year in the first round of the Big Dance, we have long thought it a good point of reference to offer some sort of spread history on these combatants.  Not to mention reminding us about some of the memories we have of the Big Dance throughout the decades.

So, following are straight-up and pointspread results for the “low major” conferences in NCAA Tournament play since 1994 (of course, skipping the lost Dance of 2020).   Keep in mind that the lower-rung leagues have often tended to cover spreads, or not cover spread, en masse during sub-regional action. And the last Dance in 2019 provided a darned good example on the plus side; low-majors were 11-5 vs. the line against non-low-majors, the second straight season these sides ahve recorded a winning spread mark in the Dance. But, don't forget, as recent as the 2016 & ‘17 Dances, the lower-tier reps were a combined 8-15 vs. the number. As you can see, proceed with some caution, as results have often reversed quickly in past years.

“Ws” and “Ls” below reflect the pointspread result for the “low-major” team in the matchup.
