After the opening weekend of the 2023 NCAA Tournament, the slipper still fits for Princeton as this year’s Cinderella — who continue to dance all the way to the Sweet 16.
The 15-seed Tigers remain the only double-digit seed left in a March that’s been full of madness. They will take on the Creighton Bluejays, who have completely rewritten their story this season after a less than stellar start to the year.
It’s the second consecutive season a 15-seed from New Jersey will be represented amongst the last 16 teams remaining after St. Peter’s magical run last year. Even more incredible, it’s the first time Princeton has been included in the final 16 since 1967 — when only 23 teams made the tournament that year. The Tigers knocked over two-seed Arizona and dominated seven-seed Missouri en route to this date with the Bluejays.

Creighton’s rough stretch in December and January is now behind them, with the team almost unrecognizable now. They took control of the game against Baylor from start to finish, never truly giving the Bears a chance to compete. Now they look like a group that was under seeded and can challenge anyone to win the whole thing.
First, they’ll have to get through Princeton guards, Ryan Langbord and Blake Peters to have a shot at being the first men’s team to make the Elite Eight in the tournament’s current format.
