FinalFourIzzo

Description

NCAA Final Four by seed with indicator for Tom Izzo's teams

Format

A dataset with 1664 observations on the following 4 variables.

Year Year 1985-2010
Seed Seed in NCAA men's basketball tournament: 1 to 16
Final4 1=made Final Four or 0=did not make Final Four
Izzo 1=team coached by Tom Izzo or 0=not an Izzo team

Details

Each year 64 college teams are selected for the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball tournament, with 16 teams placed in each of four regions. Within each region the teams are seeded from 1 to 16, with the (presumed) best team as the 1 seed and the (presumed) weakest team as the 16 seed; this practice of seeding teams began in 1979 for the NCAA tournament. Only one team from each region (so four teams each year) advances to the Final Four. This dataset if is the same as FinalFourLong, except the data starts in 1985 and we have a extra column that is an indicator for Michigan State teams coached by Tom Izzo.
