A No. 10 seed has reached the Final Four just once in the history of the NCAA Tournament: Syracuse in 2016.
In 2016, Syracuse lost in the first round of the ACC Tournament as the No. 9 seed, finalizing its pre-tournament record at 19-13 (9-9). It wasn’t a team anyone expected much out of.
But unsurprisingly, the Orange 2-3 zone proved to once again be the great tournament equalizer. No. 10 Syracuse rattled off wins against No. 7 seed Dayton, No. 15 seed Middle Tennessee, No. 11 seed Gonzaga and No. 1 Virginia.
Syracuse ultimately lost in the national semifinals to North Carolina.
Prior to 2016, No. 10 seeds had gone 0-7 in the Elite Eight.
