NCAA Seed History
Similar to the NFL table posted previously, below you can get the historical record of NCAA basketball teams according to their seed in the championship tournament.
For example, everyone knows that 1 seeds have only lost once to a 16 seeds at 147-1. But what’s their record against 3 seeds? Enter that below, and you can see it’s 22-14 (61%).
All data is since 1985 when the field was expanded to 64 teams.
There are some interesting outliers: 11 seeds are undefeated against 7 seeds and 5 seeds are 5-1 against 2 seeds.
