As a reminded to all…………….
Victories by No. 15 seeds since the NCAA tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985:
1991 East regional
Richmond 73, Syracuse 69: The Spiders become the first No. 15 to pull off the upset, never trailing in their victory over the Orangemen.
1993 West regional
Santa Clara 64, Arizona 61: Despite being on the receiving end of a 25-0 run by Arizona at one point, the Broncos survive thanks to six late free throws from freshman Steve Nash.
1997 East regional
Coppin State 78, S. Carolina 65: The Eagles, a 30-point underdog, rallied from a seven-point deficit in the second half to stun the Gamecocks, a trendy Final Four pick.
2001 West regional
Hampton 58, Iowa State 57: The Pirates make their first NCAA appearance a memorable one, as Tarvis Williams hits the winning shot in the lane with 6.9 seconds left.
Has Coach Reed said two years ago, “Why not us, why not now.” Maybe he was two year early in his forecast.
