They were the first team to reach consecutive final four without being a one or a two seed either year.[2] By reaching the 2011 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament championship game they were the third eight seed team to do so and the first since the 1984–85 Villanova Wildcats. They were the first non-BCS school to reach the championship game in back-to-back seasons since the 1960–61 and 1961–62 Cincinnati Bearcats. They were the first team to reach the championship game without being ranked in the final college basketball polls since the 1987–88 Kansas Jayhawks. They were the first national runner-up to return to the championship game since the 1990–91 Duke Blue Devils (not counting the Fab Five teams affected by the University of Michigan basketball scandal).[3] In 2011, they lost the National Championship to The University of Connecticut Huskies.
