And the crowd goes… to study.
Princeton ousted Missouri 78-63 on Saturday to reach the school’s first Sweet 16 since 1967. It marks the third-straight year a No. 15 seed has advanced to the third round of the NCAA Tournament.
Only 44,063 NCAA Tournament brackets had the Tigers dancing to the Sweet 16. That equates about 1.86 percent of roughly 20 million completed brackets. Princeton beat No. 2 Arizona in the Round of 64 to play Missouri on Saturday.
After making history, Princeton students appeared to celebrate by hitting the books. Take a look:

The Tigers will be the second Ivy League school to make the Sweet 16 in the past 43 tournaments, which last saw Cornell reach it in 2010. No team from the Ivy League, which doesn’t grant students athletic scholarships, has ever reached the NCAA Tournament championship. The closest it got was in 1979, when Penn made the Final Four.
Princeton plays the winner of Sunday’s game between Baylor and Creighton in the Sweet 16 in Louisville, Ky. on Friday.
