A 16-seed has never beaten a 1-seed in the NCAA Tournament, but that didn’t keep the Southern Jaguars from giving Gonzaga a run for their money. After the Zags jumped out to a 7-0 lead, the Jags responded with an 8-0 run of their own as the two clubs battled back-and-forth through the first-half, with Gonzaga leading 34-31 at the half.

The Jags continued to keep the game close, trailing by only 3 at the 13:00 mark, but Gonzaga slowly began to take control as they built an 11-point lead.

But Southern just wouldn’t let up as they fought back to tie the game with 3:47 remaining.

The biggest play of the game came with Gonzaga leading by just 1 with 1:57 left, as Kevin Pangos hit a step-back three-pointer to give the Zags a 4-point lead, then later added a pair of free throws as Gonzaga escaped with a 64-58 victory.
