Recommended Posts

This is so fantastic!

No. 1 seeds in the NCAA Tournament were 135-0. They have never lost to a 16th seed.

The University of Maryland-Baltimore County stunned the sports world by pulling off the most shocking upset in college basketball history, hammering Virginia 74-54 on Friday night to become the first No. 16 seed ever to beat a No. 1 seed in the men's NCAA Tournament...

UMBC secured its underdog legacy in sports lore, alongside Buster Douglas, the 1980 United States Olympic hockey team, Appalachian State football and Joe Namath's Jets.

Virginia entered the NCAA Tournament as the No. 1 overall seed after going 31-2 in the regular season, including 20-1 in ACC competition.....https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaabk/umbc-makes-history-with-stunning-upset-of-no-1-virginia/ar-BBKk04U?li=BBnb7Kz

“We got our butts whipped. That was not even close,” Bennett said. “Their offense was very hard to guard. They shot it well. We kept getting broken down and did a poor job. … We got thoroughly outplayed. Did not play well. We had a hard time with their mobile forwards and their guards. That was a thorough butt whooping.”

It sure was. The game was tied at 21 at the half, but then UMBC opened up a lead in the second half and just expanded on it.

They made 54.2 percent of their shots, including 50 percent of their threes. Guards Jairus Lyles and KJ Maura seemed to make every shot they attempted. Once they knocked Virginia on the ground, they stepped on their throats and did not let them back up.

It was exactly how Bennett described it — a thorough butt whooping.............https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaabk/tony-bennett-after-historic-loss-%E2%80%98we-got-our-butts-whipped%E2%80%99/ar-BBKk6Ww?li=BBnb7Kz
