#16 UMBC Beats #1 Virginia in NCAA Tourney 2018

The never before has happened. #16 seed UMBC Retrievers beat the #1 seed Virginia Cavaliers (Vegas odds favorite to win it all). The 2018 NCAA Tournament will be remembered for the biggest upset in college basketball. The history of #1 seeds beating #16 seeds was a perfect 135-0, now 135-1. UMBC is University of Maryland, Baltimore County in case you were wondering.

Virginia has the distinction of being on the wrong end of the previous biggest upset in college basketball when tiny Chaminade beat them along with Ralph Sampson in 1982 in Hawaii.

Wow. Just wow. #ithappened
