5 X-Factors to Watch in the Arizona vs Weber State NCAA Tournament Matchup
Associated Press
Arizona's Nick Johnson will likely have the duty of guarding Big Sky Conference Player of the Year Davion Berry.

NCAA tournament history hates No. 16 seeds.

Weber State—along with three other hopeful-if-delusional underdogs in the rest of the field—will attempt to become the first No. 16 seed to knock down a No. 1 when it faces off with Arizona in the West Region's second round on Friday morning.

Sixteens own a combined record of 0-116 (not counting play-in games) since 1985.

And according to Arizona Daily Star columnist Greg Hansen, only six No. 16 seeds have even made things interesting in the almost 30 years of the current format. 

Don't expect that zero to change in San Diego on Friday morning, but there are several X-factors for Weber State that could make the game closer than expected. There are also several on the Arizona side that could make for a massive blowout.
