Which double-digit seeds are still in the NCAA Tournament heading into Sweet 16?

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

The Sweet 16 is here for the 2022 NCAA Tournament and while the usual suspects are still here, there are plenty of newcomers to the party. There are three No. 1 seeds remaining in the tournament, including No. 1 overall seed Gonzaga, but the normalcy stops there. This is one of the craziest brackets in recent memory when it comes to upsets and features four double-digit seeds in the final 16.

We’ll be tracking all the double-digit seeds as they look to make some noise in the Big Dance. Does the dream die here or will these teams continue to upend brackets across the country? Here are the teams that have advanced past the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 2022.
