CAA Basketball Tournament
The East Regional semifinals and final were held in Madison Square Garden, the first time that arena has been used as an NCAA Tournament venue and the first time in 63 years that tournament games have been held in New York City.
With No. 7 seed Connecticut and No. 8 seed Kentucky reaching the championship game, this tournament's final was the first ever to not include at least one 1, 2, or 3 seed. It is also only the third final to not feature a 1 or 2 seed. Connecticut was the first 7 seed to ever reach and win the championship game. The two teams combined for the highest seed total in championship game history with 15. The previous record was held by Connecticut and Butler in 2011.
On April 8, the UConn Huskies women's team won the women's NCAA basketball tournament, only the second time that a school has won both the men's and women's Division I national basketball championships in the same year.
