Arizona has lost the 2 15 match up twice while Princeton has won the 2 15 match up twice.

edit: Take all my upvotes away. Princeton was a 13 seed when they beat UCLA. I apologize for the very wrong info I thought I knew. Arizona still chokes in March

In my years, Marshall has made it once. They won. I picked it on of course but great match up. I threw my back out celebrating. I cried for both. Then they of course got WVU. I fucking hate WVU.

And Princeton was also one blocked shot away from being the first 16 seed to beat a the very first year the tournament expanded to 64 teams nonetheless (1985).
