March Madness 2023: Princeton Tigers upset Joe Biden’s title favorites Arizona Wildcats in NCAA tournament

As March madness is going on, why president Joe Biden will be out of this madness? Biden recently tweeted his preference for the names of the men’s team as Arizona Wildcats and women’s teams as Villanova University competing in the event, yet, Biden was let down by the performance of the wildcats in their yesterday’s match on Thursday in the first round of the men’s NCAA tournament against Princeton Tigers.

No. 15 Princeton Beats No. 2 Arizona 59-55 in Shocking Upset

Several people see the Number 2 Arizona Wildcats as their Final Four pick. However, Biden selected the Wildcats as his nation’s champion. Wildcats, a club with a potent offense, ranked fourth nationally in points scored per game.

Why does Biden pick these two teams in the March Madness tournament?

Joe chose the University of Arizona to win the men’s NCAA basketball championship over the University of Kansas. Biden never explains why he prefers Arizona, but many others interpret his preference in the context of politics. In order to beat former President Donald Trump, Biden used Arizona as a swing state in the 2020 election; therefore, it could be the basis for his preference for Arizona.

Moreover, Biden also stated his favorite squad in the context of the women’s tournament as, Villanova University. Why will he support this team? Jill Biden, the first lady, studied for her master’s degree here.

Can you assume it is a match between the second and thirteenth-ranked teams?

By defeating the No. 2 Arizona Wildcats, a squad that has won 19 NCAA team national championships, the Princeton Tigers displayed the roaring tigers they harbored. In a thrilling 59-55 victory, the Tigers became the 11th No. 15 seed in history to surpass their first-round matchup.

The 13th-ranked Princeton squad trailed the Wildcats 31–30 at the break but scored 29 points in the second half to overcome them. Before bouncing back in the second half and limiting Arizona to just 24 points, they had fallen behind by as many as 12 points.

In the game’s final eight minutes, Arizona only managed to score four points; in contrast, Princeton went on an 18-point run. With just over two minutes left in the game, Ryan Langborg’s layup gave The Tigers the lead, with the last seconds being nothing short of dramatic.

Tosan Evbuomwan scored 15 points to take the lead in the triumph over seven-time National champion Arizona. Caden Pierce, a fierce Tiger, then came out grabbing eight rebounds.

Princeton continues its March Madness streak with a victory over Arizona, making the Wildcats’ loss more disappointing.
