Ah, March

March is such a wonderful month, no?
Especially good if you're UConn and you're going into the tournament (starts this week!!) undefeated and with the number 1 overall seed.
But also many kudos to the 14 teams in this year's tournament who have perfect graduation rates. Connecticut is actually included in this group and is the only number 1 seed to be so.
The other schools are: DePaul, Evansville, Florida, Lehigh, Marist, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Sacred Heart, Stanford, Tennessee, Texas, Vanderbilt and Villanova.
Only two of the 64 teams had graduation rates of less than 60 percent. In the men's tournament less than half of the field has grad rates higher than 60 percent.
