Villanova is number slouch, either. Their numbers don’t lie, but neither do NRG Stadium’s, site of the Final Four. That’s where the Sooners and Wildcats will play their national semifinal game Saturday and also where a lot of three-point shots have just not gone in the basket.

Final Four numbers crunch: NRG Stadium hasn’t been kind to shooters

OK is one of the nation’s best three-point shooting teams. Villanova is number slouch, either.

Their numbers don’t lie, but neither do NRG Stadium’s, site of the Final Four. That’s where the Sooners and Wildcats will play their national semifinal game Saturday and also where a lot of three-point shots have just not gone in the basket. NC faces Syracuse in the other semifinal.

There have been six NCAA Tournament games played in the residence of the NFL’s Houston Texans, but sizable crowds of 70.000-plus have seen misses at different rates for big-time college basketball. Some numbers to ponder:

Team that's shot three-pointers better than thirty-three % playing at NRG – Duke latest year – at 42.one percent.
