Which double-digit seeds are still in the NCAA Tournament in the second round?

We take a look at which double-digit seeds survived the first round of the 2022 NCAA Tournament and will look to advance.

As is the case with every March Madness bracket, there are typically some double-digit seeds that make deep tournament runs. Although some double-digit seeds are favored in the opening round, its surprising to see them advance even in the first round. Some of the more trendy double-digit seeds in this tournament are the Michigan Wolverines, Loyola-Chicago Ramblers, Richmond Spiders, and the Miami Hurricanes. Michigan was +12000 to win the whole thing after Selection Sunday, with fellow double-digit seeds Loyola-Chicago, Indiana and Notre Dame all listed at +15000 per DraftKings Sportsbook. It’ll be interesting to see how these powerhouse teams perform as underdogs on the seed line.

We’ll be tracking all the double-digit seeds as they look to make some noise in the Big Dance. Here are the teams that have advanced past the first round of the NCAA Tournament in 2022.
