Villanova won the NCAA tournament as an 8 seed in 1985, the lowest seed to win it all. Between Florida State, Kansas State, Loyola, and Syracuse there is now a 7 percent chance of a 9 or 11 seed winning it all this year (per espn.com/bpi).

Bilas: This Sweet 16 is neither unprecedented nor revolutionary

OK, let's get a few things straight: A revolution is not happening in college basketball. Nor is what is happening in this NCAA tournament unprecedented. We've had crazier tournaments. What isn't crazy is The Bilastrator's order of the 16 remaining teams.

Why did zone defense bother Spartans? (1:41)

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Syracuse just went from the First Four to the Sweet 16. Led by 17 points from Tyus Battle, the Orange upset No. 3 seed Michigan State 55-53. The Spartans missed their last 13 shots, and scored just five points (all free throws) over the last 5:41.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Michigan State's Matt McQuaid took what had been a rock fight with Syracuse and at least gave it a sensational ending going into halftime. When his shot was blocked in the closing seconds, McQuaid recovered the ball and drained a banked-in 3 as the horn sounded. MSU leads the Orange 25-22.
