The first two rounds (3 if you count the 64/65 game) of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament are complete and we’re down to sixteen teams looking for this year’s national championship. I felt it would be fun to highlight this season’s snowfall amounts for each team, so I’ve made a table showing the schools’ locations and seasonal snowfall.
|Sweet Sixteen Snowfall|
|Baylor University||Waco, TX||3.7|
|Butler University||Indianapolis, IN||33.0|
|Cornell University||Ithaca, NY||81.6|
|Duke University||Durham, NC||8.0|
|Kansas State University||Manhattan, KS||40.7|
|Michigan State University||East Lansing, MI||42.6|
|Ohio State University||Columbus, OH||49.9|
|Purdue University||West Lafayette, IN||21.2|
|University of Kentucky||Lexington, KY||23.7|
|University of Northern Iowa||Cedar Falls, IA||52.8|
|University of Tennessee||Knoxville, TN||5.2|
|University of Washington||Seattle, WA||Trace|
|St. Mary’s College||Moraga, CA||None|
|Syracuse University||Syracuse, NY||106.1|
|West Virginia University||Morgantown, WV||54.0|
|Xavier University||Cincinnati, OH||38.4|
Some cities listed did not have data available, so I used information from a close location. The reports for Morgantown, WV indicate no snowfall this season. I find that hard to believe, so the 70.5 is from Fairmont, WV about half an hour away. I have sent an email to a meteorologist in West Virginia, so if I hear back, I’ll update the total.
Update (5/26): The meteorologist in West Virginia said there was not an official number, but that about 54 inches looks good, so I’ve edited the table.
Have a great week and enjoy the Regional Semis on Thursday and Friday!
