Did you notice how many good NCAA men's basketballs teams there are in a 120-mile radius around Cincinnati, OH?
1 - Indiana Hoosiers (Sweet 16)
2 - Louisville Cardinals (Final 4)
3 - Kentucky Wildcats (Champions)
4 - Cincinnati Bearcats (Sweet 16)
5 - Xavier Musketeers (Sweet 16)
6 - Ohio State Buckeyes (Final 4)
7 - Ohio U Bobcats (Sweet 16)
(note: the Dayton Flyers are also in that circle, but didn't make it into the NCAA tournament this year).
Could the Ohio River valley be the "cradle of basketball"?
