Traditions

One of the oldest traditions in the NCAA Tournament is having the regional championship winners and national champ cut down the nets after winning the title. Since 1986 though, the winning school gets a little extra as a trophy: the hardwood court itself that the Final Four games were played on.


National Invitational Tournament

Right up until the 1970s, the National Invitational Tournament was considered more prestigious than the NCAA Tournament itself. Hard to believe, right? That all changed when the NCAA decided to bar teams from playing in other postseason tourneys if they declined an invite to their postseason event. The NCAA then made it official in 2005 when it purchased the NIT.
