Worth noting that the chair of the 2009 NCAA Men's Basketball Committee was the legendary Mike Slive. He did an amazing job leading a group that seeded the 2009 NCAA Tournament.
The 2019 tournament features all 1, 2 and 3 seeds in the Sweet 16 for just the second time ever since the bracket expanded in 1985; 2009 was the other year. Also tied with 2009 for the most top 4 seeds (14) in the Sweet 16.
Duke plays ACC's Virginia Tech in Sweet 16 because Florida State was 4th ACC team on top four lines and thus had to go West; KU was top seeded among No. 4 seeds and went Midwest; KState went South, putting Hokies as 4th No. 4 East. It worked because Tech played Duke only once.
