With these numbers in mind, Baylor becomes part of the 14 percent of No. 1 seeds that don't make it to the Sweet 16, and it makes the No. 1 seed record against No. 8 57-14. No. 1 is 66-7 against No. 9.
The Tar Heels enter the next round with much better odds than they had heading into Saturday, with No. 8 seeds being 7-3 in the Sweet 16 if they manage to make it there. North Carolina meet the winner of No. 5 Saint Mary's and No. 4 UCLA.
