One. To determine how many games behind a team is from first place:1) Subtract the number of wins the team not in first place has from the number of wins the first place team has.2) Subtract the number of losses the first place team has from the number of losses the team not in first place has.3) Add the numbers you get from 1) and 2) and divide by 2.For Example:Team A has 61 wins and 35 lossesTeam B has 58 wins and 36 lossesUsing the explanation above you would do the following equasion:1) 61 - 58 = 32) 36 - 35 = 13) (3 + 1) / 2 = 2 .........Team B is 2 games behind Team AIf Team A loses and Team B wins:Team A has 61 wins and 36 lossesTeam B has 59 wins and 36 losses1) 61 - 59 = 22) 36 - 36 = 03) (2 + 0) / 2 = 1 ..........Team B is 1 game behind Team B
Assuming you mean only the Final Four and not the NCAA Tournament overall, the answer is UCLA. Depending on which games you choose to include, the number of wins is a constant subject for debate. UCLA has 11 National Championships, the best record of any NCAA school. One of the arguments over which wins to score stems from the 1980 Championship Game appearance against Louisville. Although the Bruins defeated Purdue (67-62) to reach the finals, the NCAA later vacated the win based upon alleged rules violations. Louisville beat the Bruins to take the National Championship, 59-54. The other is whether one wishes to count the consolation games which were only played from 1946 to 1981. In those games the losers of each semi-final game played for the third place position. UCLA won twice (2 wins). In 1974 UCLA beat Kansas, and in 1976 UCLA beat Rutgers. 11 National Championships (22 wins in the final four, one win for the semi-final, one win for the National Championship); 2 semi-final wins without a win in the National Championship game (1980, 2006, 2 wins); 2 consolation wins (2 wins); and the 1980 semi-final win which was later vacated (-1). Now all you have to do is decide which wins you want to include and do the math.
