The phenomenon that every year since the onset of play-in games for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, a historically black or mostly black university has been selected to play in at least 1 of the play-in games as a 16 seed. The intrigue of this phenomenon increases when considering that most of these teams lose their game.
