As of 2010 this has never happened. A number one seed has never lost to a 16 seed.

No. No 16th seed has every won the tournament or even won their first game. The lowest seed to ever win the championship is a #8 seed.

A 16 seed has never defeated a 1 seed, which is their first opponent of the round of 64

It happened in 2018 when the University of Maryland - Baltimore County (16th seed in the South) beat the University of Virginia (1st seed in the South) by a score of 74 - 54.

A 15 seed has never played a 1 seed. Normally, a 16 seed is matched against a 1 seed in the first round, and through the 2009 tournament, the 1 seed has won the first round game 100 times out of 100 tries. A 15 seed has beaten a 2 seed four times, but has never advanced beyond the second round.

No because the 1 seed faces the 16 seed, but 1 seeds are 112-0 in games against 16 seeds.

One seeds have always beaten the 16 seeds.

32 = 9, 42 = 16 sqrt(12) is between 3 and 4.

4x4=16, and 5x5=25, so 4 and 5 are the whole numbers closest to the square root of 19. [And incidentally of all the square roots of all the whole numbers between 16 and 25.]

Yes,In 1998 in the NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Tournament 16 seed Harvard beat 1 seed Stanford

You do not get the code for the Robo Dendron seed from the Moshi Magazine. You have to buy the Moshi Monsters: Moshling Zoo game for Nintendo DS. The game comes with a code to get the Robo Dendron seed. You get a code for the Trashy Tulip seed when you pay for an 8 or 16 issue subscription to the Moshi Magazine. Once you have paid for the subscription, an email will be sent to you with the code for the Trashy Tulip seed.

In the 1998 Women's tourney, #16 seed Harvard defeated #1 seed Stanford Cardinal. No 16 seed has beaten a 1 seed in the Men's tournament. However, #16 Western Carolina lost 71-73 to #1 Purdue in 1996. *~//~*More telling than that, in 1989 Georgetown (50-49 over Princeton after Alonzo Mourning blocked two last-second game-winning shot attempts) and Oklahoma both won by only one point over their respective #16 seeds, with Oklahoma needing to rally from a seventeen-point deficit to upend upstart East Tennessee State 72-71 Also, one could argue that 1990 Murray State came closest, depending on your point of view, as they took Michigan State to overtime before losing by four, 75-71. And the Harvard win over Stanford deserves a HUGE asterisk, because Harvard was much better than a 16 seed, as well as due to the fact that two of Stanford's starters were injured, which, in a men's bracket, would've cost them their seeding because seeding is universally represented by the product put on the floor in the men's game. It was, in retrospect, more of a traditional 14 vs 3 matchup.

no not thus far...I hope it will though! :)

In 1989 TWO number 16 seeds, Princeton and East Tennessee State, lost by one point. (Princeton lost to Georgetown who ended up losing in the Elite Eight, and ETSU lost to Oklahoma who endeed up making the Sweet 16.) In 1990 Murray State lost to Michigan State by 4 in Overtime, the first 1-16 game to go to OT. MSU lost in the Sweet 16. In the Women's Tourney the 1 seed lost ONCE. #16 Princeton beat #1 Stanford 71-67.

There were 4 games between 1985 and the release of Atari's game on June 16, 2009 (sequel game 2011).

The closest prime number to 16, and less than 16, is 13. The closest prime number to 33, and greater than 33, is 37.

User Avatar

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.

Yes a number 16 seed has beat a number one seed in the NCAA basketball tournament, but it was in the womens' tournament. In 1988, 16th seed Harvard beat 1st seed Stanford in the womens' tourney. (Answer by Mymomisnfat) It also happened in 2018 when the University of Maryland - Baltimore County (16th seed in the South) beat the University of Virginia (1st seed in the South) by a score of 74 - 54.
