USC has never won an NCAA basketball title.
Since the NCAA implemented the 64 seed tournament format in 1985, the lowest seed to make it to the NCAA championship game was #8 seeded Villanova in 1985.
yes in 1959
The lowest seed to ever win a NCAA basketball title was Villanova, ranked seed #8. They won the tournament in 1985. Lower seeds have made it to the Final Four (George Mason and Louisiana State, ranked 11th, made it in 2006 and 1986 respectively) but never won. UCLA in 1980 was ranked 48th and made it to the championship game.
Since the seeding system was introduced in 1979, the lowest seed to win the NCAA men's basketball tournament was 8th-seeded Villanova in 1985.

Not in Men's NCAA Basketball
No player ever won an National Collegiate Athletic Association scoring title, American Basketball Association scoring title, and National Basketball Association scoring title. ABA (1967-1976) scoring title winners were Connie Hawkins, Larry Jones, Spencer Haywood, Dan Issel, Charlie Scott, Julius Erving (three times), and George McGinnis. None of those players ever won a scoring title in the NBA.
