Sweet 16 Stats and Facts from Las Vegas

Las Vegas, Nevada (March 22, 2010):

After two rounds of the NCAA Tournament:

FIVE worse seeds were favored over superior seeds. Surprisingly, Vegas was wrong 4 out of 5 times!

THREE double digit seeds have advanced – now making it 24 of 26 years that at least one double digit seed has.

NO seed worse than #12 made the Sweet Sixteen (only 6 of 416 Sweet Sixteen teams have been worse than a #12 seed)

ONE #12 (Cornell) won in the first round – making it 20 of 22 years that at least one #12 has advanced.

Of the 200 Elite Eight teams in the last 25 years, only ONE has been worse than a #11 seed (Cornell would be only the second). Cornell is the biggest underdog of the next round: Kentucky is favored by 9 points.

FOUR Sweet 16 teams were underdogs in both their games: Northern Iowa, Xavier, Cornell, and St. Mary’s.
