๐Ÿ“Š The game that lost @FCNordsjaelland the title.

@FCKobenhavn were handed the title by #fcn‘s loss to rivals @BrondbyIF. Nordsjaelland had more shots, more corners, and OVER 300 MORE completed passes (397-700).

A Longstanding History

The Womenโ€™s NCAA Tournament began in 1982.ย  In the last 40 NCAA Tournaments, the menโ€™s and womenโ€™s teams from the same school have made it into the Final Four of their respective tournaments – in the same year – thirteen times. Georgia was the first school to do it in 1983 and it would be 16 years later before we saw Duke do it in 1999.ย  The remaining 11 instances have all occurred in the 21st century.

For five years straight we saw it done with Oklahoma (2002), Texas (2003), UConn (2004), Michigan State (2005), and LSU (2006).ย  UConn in 2004 did something no school has ever done before – their menโ€™s and womenโ€™s teams each won the National Championship.ย  No basketball program in history had won both in the same year before and UConn remains the only school to have done it.

A familiar name appears in 2009 and 2011, UConn, with Louisville following suit in 2013.ย  Exactly a decade later, in 2014, UConn menโ€™s and womenโ€™s teams not only made the Final Four together, but won the National Championship together. Again. UConn remains the only program to achieve such an incredible feat. To round out our thirteen different instances of seeing the menโ€™s and womenโ€™s teams from one school play in the Final Four are the Syracuse Orange and South Carolina Gamecocks, in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

Present Day

Players, coaches, staff, students, professors, and the entire college community waits to hear their schoolโ€™s name announced on Selection Sunday. For most schools, they are waiting to hear their schoolโ€™s name announced just once, but for twenty-four different schools, they heard their name announced twice – for both the men’s and women’s tournaments.

These twenty-four schools started the tournament with a chance to get their names on the above list. Making the list is no easy feat, which is why only thirteen schools have done it thus far. Four rounds, four games for each the menโ€™s and womenโ€™s teams must be defeated to make it to the Final Four and have their name etched into the March Madness history books. The results of the menโ€™s and womenโ€™s games for each of these twenty-four schools for the first and second rounds are listed below.

After the First Round

For 5 of the 24 schools, both of their basketball teams were defeated in Round 1.

  1. Delaware Blue Hens: #13 Women lost (#4 Maryland) | #15 Men lost (#2 Villanova)
  2. Kentucky Wildcats: #6 Women lost (#11 Princeton) | #2 Men lost (#15 Saint Peterโ€™s)
  3. Longwood Lancers: #16 Women lost (#1 NC State) | #14 Men lost (#3 Tennessee)
  4. Montana State Bobcats: #16 Women lost (#1 Stanford) | #14 Men lost (#3 Texas Tech)
  5. Virginia Tech Hokies: #5 Women lost (#13 FGCU) | #11 Men lost (#6 Texas)

For another 5 of the 24 schools, one of their teams lost in Round 1, so they turned their attention to their remaining team as Round 2 began on March 19 & 20.

  1. Arkansas Razorbacks: #10 Women lost (#7 Utah) | #4 Men won (#13 Vermont)
  2. Indiana Hoosiers: #3 Women won (#14 Charlotte) | #12 Men lost (#5 Saint Maryโ€™s)
  3. Iowa Hawkeyes: #2 Women won (#15 Illinois State) | #5 Men lost (#12 Richmond)
  4. LSU Tigers: #3 Women won (#14 Jackson State) | #6 Men lost (#11 Iowa State)
  5. UConn Huskies: #2 Women won (#15 Mercer) | #5 Men lost (#12 New Mexico State)

The remaining 14 schools saw both of their teamโ€™s advance to Round 2.

Round One saw five schools eliminated entirely, with 5 others having one of their two teams eliminated. For the latter programs, here is how their remaining team fared in Round 2.

  1. Arkansas Razorbacks: #4 Men won (#12 New Mexico State)
  2. Indiana Hoosiers: #3 Women won (#11 Princeton)
  3. UConn Huskies: #2 Women won (#7 UCF)
  4. Iowa Hawkeyes: #2 Women lost (#10 Creighton)
  5. LSU Tigers: #3 Women lost (#6 Ohio State)

After Round 1, 14 schools still had both basketball teams remaining; however, 11 of those schools saw one or both of their teams lose in Round 2.

  1. Baylor Bears: #2 Women lost (#10 South Dakota) | #1 Men lost (#8 UNC)
  2. Creighton Bluejays: #10 Women upset (#2 Iowa) | #9 Men lost (#1 Kansas)
  3. Ohio State Buckeyes: #6 Women upset (#3 LSU) | #7 Men lost (#2 Villanova)
  4. Notre Dame Fighting Irish: #5 Women upset (#4 Oklahoma) | #11 Men lost (#3 Texas Tech)
  5. Texas Longhorns: #2 Women won (#7 Utah) | #6 Men lost (#3 Purdue)
  6. Tennessee Vols: #4 Women won (#12 Belmont) | #3 Men lost (#11 Michigan)
  7. Arizona Wildcats: #4 Women lost (#5 UNC) | #1 Men won (#9 TCU)
  8. Gonzaga Bulldogs: #9 Women lost (#1 Louisville) | #1 Men won (#9 Memphis)
  9. Kansas Jayhawks: #8 Women lost (#1 Stanford) | #1 Men won (#9 Creighton)
  10. Miami Hurricanes: #8 Women lost (#1 South Carolina | #10 Men upset (#2 Auburn)
