Did you not understand the explanation that volstennis gave?

The basic idea is that players played in the NCAA tournament as individuals. The scoring system was such that a first round win counted as so many points towards your team's total score, a second-round win counted more, etc. So, the team champion had a lot of good players scoring points for them, but there were no dual matches in the NCAA tournament.
