53. Hoyas' close call

A 16-seed has never beaten a No. 1 seed. The closest call came in 1989 when mighty Georgetown beat Princeton 50-49. Bob Scrabis had a shot to win the game for Princeton, but Alonzo Mourning blocked it. After an out-of-bounds play, Kit Mueller had one more chance for Princeton, but his shot at the buzzer didn't fall. This wasn't John Thompson's greatest team, but it was another Hoyas squad that had a power player inside and a few stars, such as Charles Smith. Pete Carril had better Princeton teams, too, but this one perhaps would have been remembered above them all if it had pulled off one of the biggest and most historic upsets in NCAA history. -- Andy Katz
