If we could assign a face to the a No. 16 seed is going to eventually beat a No. 1 seed bandwagon, that face would be the one belonging to Pablo Torre.
The ESPN The Magazine senior writer and Around the Horn panelist has now picked a No. 16 seed to upset a No. 1 three years in a row. In 2013, Torre picked Southern to beat Gonzaga; the Bulldogs won, but the game was tied with under four minutes to play. In 2014, he predicted Coastal Carolina would knock off Virginia; the Cavaliers were victorious, but trailed by five points at halftime.
And in 2015, Torre is claiming Lafayette will defeat Villanova. He made his prediction on ATH today.
