69. Spider bite
We are still waiting on a 16-seed versus 1-seed upset. The Richmond Spiders were the first 15-seed to defeat a 2-seed in the tournament when they pulled off a 73-69 victory over Jim Boeheim's squad on March 14, 1991. "In every huddle, we said it was our game, we were going to win it," Richmond coach Dick Tarrant said after the game. "I'm enormously proud of them." The Spiders had an eight-point lead at halftime after shooting 61.5 percent from the field, while the Orange struggled with a 40.7 percent overall clip in the first half. But Richmond successfully absorbed multiple runs by Syracuse in the second half, and Curtis Blair finished with a team-high 18 points.
