Total road wins for some top teams: Cornell 15, Butler 13, Nova 9, Syracuse 8, Purdue 8, West Virginia 8, K-State 8, Ohio State 7, UK 7, Duke 5.
Every analyst talks ad nauseum about how “good teams win on the road” and “teams that win on the road win in the tourney.” They are, of course, correct.
So how has Duke (or Kentucky for that matter) done in the tourney the past few years? Not well at all.
There’s a reason a 3rd seeded Villanova team dismantled a second seeded Duke team last year and few were surprised.
