Emphatic Yes.
Beat Weber St by 18 last year and Ole Miss by 19 the year before are next largest margins of wins.

Thought I heard X's 25 point victory margin was the second most for a #11 seed in NCAA history. Any verification or anyone else recall hearing that statement?

34 point margin by an 11 seed:
1990 Second Round 11 Loyola Marymount 149 3 Michigan 115

2004 Second Round 7 Xavier 89 2 Mississippi State 74 15
2012 Second Round 10 Xavier 70 15 Lehigh 58 12
2008 First Round 3 Xavier 73 14 Georgia 61 12

2007 First Round 8 BYU 77 9 Xavier 79 2
1987 First Round 4 Missouri 69 13 Xavier 70 1


My own stat o' the night (since 1985):
Xavier is tied with Michigan State with 9 tournaments where it has a higher seed over a lower seed victory.

note: Villanova has more such games,15, especially due to the 1985 championship as an 8 seed. Mich St is second,14,
and Xavier and Syracuse are next with 11 ... though Xavier might accumulate more this year!
