Highest seed would be a #1 seed, of course, done many times.
In 1985 Villanova won a national championship as an 8 seed beating Georgetown the highest seed ever to win a national championship
A 16 seed has never defeated a 1 seed, which is their first opponent of the round of 64
George Mason 2006 LSU 1986
The lowest seed to reach the Elite 8 was #12 Missouri in 2002.
Yes, quite often. The most recent was LSU in 2006. Arizona won the title as a #4 seed in 1997.
No,the highest seed to win was a five seed 2 times, the Devils in '96 and islanders in '80. The '12 finals result will give us either a 6th or 8th seed depending on who wins.
11 seed George Mason
because the no.2 seed played in the upper half with the no.1 seed in the semi and beat her so she went to the final instead of the no.1 and n the final usually no.1 seed meet no.2 seed
George Mason was the 11th seed in 2006 and made it all the way to the Final Four. I don't know if that's the lowest seeded team to make it to the Elite Eight or Final Four though.http://a.espncdn.com/ncaatourney/brackets/2006Bracket.pdf
