I agree. Stating the year and seed # is more than sufficient. Then again, you could always expand the hint to be, "Starts with Villanov..."

Seems like only a matter of time before Geno Auriemma passes Tara VanDerveer and ultimately Summitt.

Summitt retired with 1,098 wins. Auriemma currently has 991 wins, 22 behind VanDerveer, who had a 7-year head start. At UConn's present rate, he'll need less than 4 seasons.

No need for the clue for 1985 basketball champs. V only leave a couple of schools to try. Either yo know it or you don't shouldn't be able to guess it because of the extremely limited number of schools that start with V
