Apparently the lowest seed to ever win the March Madness tournament was an 8 seed. Villanova did it back in 1985.
Nope, In the history of March madness a one see has never lost in the first round.
number 8 seed, Villanova, 1985
A #16 seed has never beaten a #1 seed in March Madness.
no not thus far...I hope it will though! :)
George Mason was an 11 seed in the 2006 March Madness and a 12 seed in the 2008 March Madness.
The number 1 seed.
No this is the first time a 15 seed has mad it to the sweet 16
It has never happened before.
Probably a 3 but maybe a 4 but no higher than a 4
In March Madness 1983 when the Wolfpack defeated the Cougars in the finals, NC State was the #6 seed in the West Region.
No. However, #15 seeds have beaten #2 seeds six times, with the 2 most recent in 2012, Duke losing to Lehigh 70-75 and Norfolk St beat Missouri 86-84.
right now it is in the future but not because I'm a ku fan but by the way they've played this season i think they will be a #1 overall seed
One seeds have always beaten the 16 seeds.
As of the 2008 March Madness, that was 2006 when Florida (3 seed), UCLA (2 seed), George Mason (11 seed), and LSU (4 seed) made the Final Four. That also happened in 1980 when Louisville (2 seed), UCLA (8 seed), Purdue (6 seed), and Iowa (5 seed) made the Final Four.
The 1985 Villanova Wildcats (#8 seed) defeated the defending National Champions Georgetown Hoyas.
In a very competitievematch-up,#1 seedDuke defeated Butler (a #5 seed) 61-59.
71-51 North Carolina in the first round of the 1994 NCAA tournament.
Through 2012, only Arizona (1997) won the championship as a #4 seed. (There were no seeds prior to the 1979 tournament.)
Rafael Nadal was the No.1 seed for the tournament, but withdrew due to knee trouble, so No.2 seed Roger Federer effectively became top seed in his place.
