No, a 16th seed has never won the tourney. In fact, in the men's tourney, a number 16 seed has never beaten a number one seed. A 16th seed has beaten a number one seed in the women's tourney only once.

No. Princeton and East Tennessee State came close in 1989, losing by 1 point to #1 seeds Georgetown and Oklahoma, and in 1990 Murray State forced overtime against Michigan State before losing by 4.
