Gonzaga's 6-point win over Southern is tied for the 6th-closest margin of victory in a 1 vs 16 game since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985.
Southern's 6-point loss is the closest ever by a 16-seed SWAC school. The only other 16-seed SWAC school to come within single digits of a 1-seed was Mississippi Valley State, which lose by 7 points to Duke in 1986.
Southern's 6-point loss is the closest by a 16-seed against a 1-seed since 1996, when Western Carolina lost by 2 against Purdue. Southern is only the 5th 16-seed in the last 20 years to come within single digits of a 1-seed.
