Fairleigh Dickinson stunned Purdue in only the second upset of a No. 1 seed by a No. 16 seed in men’s college basketball.
Fairleigh Dickinson, a No. 16 seed in the N.C.A.A. tournament, defeated top-seeded Purdue on Friday, 63-58, in the most shocking upset in men’s college basketball in half a decade.
The win was just the second time a No. 16 seed had defeated a No. 1.
F.D.U., located in Teaneck, N.J., just across the Hudson River from Upper Manhattan, had never advanced to the second round of the tournament before Friday.
