Saint Mary’s vs. Virginia Commonwealth features one of the longest travel times across the NCAA Tournament’s first round.
Saint Mary’s had the tournament’s most arduous journey to its Round of 64 destination. The Gaels likely had to travel roughly 13 hours — connecting across two connecting flights — to reach their hotel in New York’s capital.
Since 2014’s March Madness, the four teams with the longest travel times entering the Round of 64 have covered just 39% of the time.
Had you wagered $250 on each of those teams, you’d be down roughly $2,250 over the last eight NCAA Tournaments.
But that’s not what this system pick is about. It’s regarding the first-half total.
