A 9-16 seed has never won the dang thing. Here's a novel approach to explaining why it won't happen this year either.
Oregon has a tough opening matchup against Oklahoma State (1:40 TNT) and its star freshman point guard, Marcus Smart.
But since the Ducks are known to be seeded too low they are exempt from this logic, right?
Wrong. The numbers guy in the basketball sky puts it this way: Oregon has an .03 percent chance of winning it all.
Whatever that means.
