BY THE NUMBERS
Consecutive seasons the champion of the Big East tournament has reached the Final Four: West Virginia in 2010, UConn in '11 and now Louisville, which will try to become the second straight member of the conference to win the national title.
Blocked shots per game by Kentucky center Anthony Davis, the first player to lead the nation in blocks and reach the Final Four since Houston center Akeem (now Hakeem) Olajuwon had 5.6 rejections for the national runner-up in 1984.
Blocked shots for Kentucky in 2011--12, the most in NCAA history. The previous record of 315 was held by the 2003--04 UConn team, which won the title that season.
Points scored by UNLV to beat Duke in the 1991 national championship, the only time a team has reached triple digits in the final game. The Runnin' Rebels also set the record for victory margin with their 30-point win.
