Florida enters NCAA Tournament play as a No. 7 seed for just the second time in school history.

And apparently, 7 is an unlucky number when it comes to making a deep run. Since the NCAA Tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, no seven seeds have made the Final Four and only six have made the Elite Eight.

In that span, seven seeds have won 60 percent (65 of 108) of their first-round games against No. 10 seeds.

Florida was on the other end of that pendulum when it was a No. 10 seed in the 2010 NCAA Tournament in Oklahoma City. The Gators took No. 7 seed BYU to double-overtime before falling 99-92.

The last time Florida was a seven seed, it didn’t go well. After winning their first SEC regular season title in school history, the No. 7 seed Gators were routed 68-46 by No. 10 seed Colorado State in the opening round of the 1989 NCAA Tournament.
