    Last week we looked at the bloodround., its importance, and which teams have found the most success in the NCAA Round of 12. Today, we're examining the top-half of the NCAA bracket and the money rounds. The quarterfinals, the semis, and the finals. As one may expect, Penn State dominates all three of those rounds. But to the extent in which they dominate is difficult to fathom. For instance, the Nittany Lions are 24-2 in the NCAA semifinals over the last five NCAA Tournaments (2017-22). For perspective's sake, the team with the second-most wins during that span is Ohio State, who is 8-11.

    Below we have the records of each DI team during the last five NCAA tournaments in these extremely important rounds, starting with the finals and working our way down to the quarters.
