The American Athletic Conference (AAC), formerly known as the Big East.


The University of Connecticut was one of the last remaining members of the old Big East, along with Cincinnati and South Florida. The conference dissolved after four schools (Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Louisville and Notre Dame) joined the ACC, Rutgers moved to the Big 10, and the "Catholic 7" (Georgetown, Villanova, St. John's, Seton Hall, Providence, Marquette and DePaul) formed a new, basketball-only conference (keeping the Big East name).

The AAC will add several schools over the next few years, including SMU, Houston, Memphis, Central Florida, Temple, Tulane, East Carolina, Tulsa and Navy.

What are the chances of making a half court shot?

not really that high but I'm saying maybe 1 out of every 10 shot's (did this at the court) so like 10%.

Accuracy of probability increases with the number of attempts. Assuming 10% to be a good estimate then: The probability of making the shot on the first try is .1 or 10%. For 2 completions in a row the probability drops to: .1 x .1 or .01 or 1% (You will miss 99% of attempts). For 3 in a row the probability drops to: .1 x .1 x .1 or .001 (You will miss 99.9% of your attempts. Like anything else, the more you train the better adapted you become.

Athletic Coaches and Managers

Which basketball coach has the most NCAA career wins?

  • The coach with the most wins overall is women's basketball coach Pat Summitt with 913. All of these are with the Tennessee Lady Volunteers.
  • Bobby Knight of Texas Tech (& primarily, Indiana University) has the most wins in men's basketball with 902 career wins. He is now retired, and his son took over for him as Texas Tech's coach

If the question refers to any NCAA division:

  • Gene Bess of Three Rivers Community College in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, three hours south of St. Louis, became the first college basketball coach to win 1,000 games on Feb. 22, 2006. The 70-year-old Bess' 1,000-258 record is unmatched at any collegiate level.
  • Harry Statham at McKendree College in Lebanon, Ill., near St. Louis, is the winningest coach at any four-year college or university, compiling 912 wins in 40 years of coaching.
Two Different Versions of Winningest

MOST CAREER WINS:

Bob Knight(Ohio State,1962)

Army 1963-1969, Indiana 1970-2000, Texas Tech 2002-Present

902 Won 354 Lost .713 percent WINNINGEST BY PERCENTAGE:

Adolph Rupp (Kansas,1923)

Kentucky 1931-52, 1954-1972

876 Won 190 Lost .822 percent

John Wooden(Purdue,1932)

Indiana State 1947-1948, UCLA 1949-1975

664 Won 162 Lost .804 percent

The key to the question is NCAA wins. Summitt has over 1000 career wins, but 175 of those wins came under the aegis of the AIWA (pre-NCAA). Pat has approx. 850 NCAA wins and hasn't caught Bob Knight yet.

Why are the rankings of basketball teams in the NCAA tournament called seeds?

One of the meaning of the word seed, when it comes to sports, is 'a ranking of teams or players for a specific purpose'. So, as far as sports are concerned, the words seed and rank are synonymous.

The use of "seed" or "seeding" was common in tennis in the late 1800s. It was used to describe the act of spreading or "seeding" the best players throughout the tournament in order to keep the best players from meeting/playing early on. The "seeded" players were those of higher skill and thus the term became synonymous with ranking.

The term is also used in terms of "seeding" a deck of cards; spreading the most desirable cards throughout a deck so as to not have them all appear at once.

What type of basketball is used in NCAA?

There a many different balls used. Generally speaking each conference has it's official ball. The official ball for the tournament is the Wilson Solution. This ball is commonly used by other schools as well. Some schools use the Nike Elite Championship ball and I believe I've seen teams use the Spaulding TF1000 (a very common ball at the high school level).
