The Princeton & The Pauper

Because of the #15 seed Princeton Tigers, there are officially no perfect brackets left.

Princeton pulled an NCAA Tournament stunner on Thursday, when the No. 15 seed Tigers upset No. 2 seed Arizona 59-55 in the first round. It marks the third straight NCAA Tournament in which a No. 15 seed has upset a No. 2 seed after Saint Peter’s beat Kentucky in 2022 and Oral Roberts beat Ohio State in 2021 and the 11th time in tournament history.

19 brackets correctly selected the upset over the #2 seed Arizona Wildcats including 10-year veteran Ashley Purdum who currently sits atop the leaderboard in a tie for first.

Two Survivor entrants went down following the Arizona loss, Tom VanConant and Nicole Gillock.
