Princeton Stuns Arizona For Huge March Madness Upset

During March Madness, Tosan Evbuomwan and Princeton went on a late run in the second half to pull off a major upset.

The 15-seed Princeton team defeated lower-seeded 2-seed Arizona by a margin of 10 points to win the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 25 years.

The University of Arizona Wildcats were defeated by Princeton 59–55.

As the South region of the 2023 men’s March Madness tournament has changed, as reported by ESPN, Alabama no longer has complete control over it.

“Pretty surreal feeling,” guard Matt Allocco said. “To beat a great team like that on this stage is a pretty special feeling. But also I can’t say I’m surprised. This team has been so good all year, so gritty. On paper, it’s going to look like a big upset. But we believe in each other and we think we’re a really good team. When we’re at our best, then I think we can beat anybody in the country.”

The Pac-12 Tournament winner was held scoreless for the last 4:43 while the 15th-seeded Tigers (22-9) scored the final nine points. In Princeton’s first tournament victory since defeating UNLV in 1998, when Henderson was a member of the Tigers, Tosan Evbuomwan scored 15 points.
