Here are some interesting stats and facts I've found on the four teams remaining at the Miami Regional of the NCAA tournament
-Since the NCAA tournament field was expanded to 16 seeds per region in 1985, there have been only seven matchups between teams seeded No. 12 and No. 13. It happened twice last year: Western Kentucky played San Diego and Villanova played Siena, both games taking place in Tampa. It will happen again Sunday between No. 12 Arizona and No. 13 Cleveland State.
-Syracuse is 49-31 in the NCAA tournament.
-Syracuse and Arizona State have met just once in before. It was 1968 in the Far West Classic, and Arizona State won 93-77. Herb Sendek is 1-1 against the Orange with N.C. State.
-Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim needs two wins to reach 800.
-Arizona State is 10-5 against the NCAA tournament field: 3-0 vs. Arizona, 2-0 vs. UCLA, 1-1 against Cal, 1-2 against Wasington, 1-2 against USC, 1-0 against BYU and 1-0 against Temple.
-Cleveland State is 3-2 vs. ranked opponents this year, with the three victories against Wake Forest, Syracuse and Butler.
