Since the tournament went to a 64 team format 37 years ago, a #1 seed has won 24 times.
65% of the time a #1 seed wins.

A #1 seed has won the last five tournaments, 11 out of the last 15, and based solely on that trend alone, and the way Alabama looked yesterday and Houston all season, I wouldn't fade that trend, not to mention KU has a very real chance to repeat.
