UMB-lievable! 16-seed Retrievers make history, knock off 1-seed Virginia

Virginia's Devon Hall takes questions from the media in the locker room after losing to UMBC in a first-round game in the NCAA men's college basketball tournament in Charlotte N.C. Friday

But after the upset victory over the University of Virginia, the school will also be known for its basketball team.

Virginia was on the wrong end of the most improbable upset in men's college basketball history Friday night, falling to Maryland Baltimore County, 74-54, to become the first No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 16 in the NCAA Tournament.

UMBC Athletics Director Tim Hall was complimentary of Odom after Odom won the first-year-coach award.

The Retrievers played in only one NCAA Tournament game prior to Friday night. They did a heck of a job. I was concerned with the 4-guard offense heading into this, and we didn't do the job. "We kept getting broken down and did a poor job".

Lyles at first committed to and attended Virginia Commonwealth University (which had its own Cinderella moment in 2011), but later transferred to UMBC. Not when that No. 1 had almost run the table in the ACC, regarded as the nation's best conference, winning the regular season by four games and then running through that league's conference tournament. But we're not here to talk about the losses.

Things got so exciting, we'll forgive the typo.

As you can imagine, this produced some bad beats and some wonderful winning bets.

What was UMBC doing so effectively? Give credit to them, too.

"This school just showed we can be athletic as well", Sean Brown, a 19-year-old sophomore and biology major, told The Baltimore Sun.

"Defensively, they were very quick and beating screens".

$10,000 more if UMBC advances to the Elite Eight. But it takes two months for the generally predictable outcome to play out. "That pretty much sums it up itself". "I suspect there will be a lot of people at work on Monday who will say they were here tonight, but they weren't actually here". It was the beginning of a 17-3 run, and the Cavaliers were basically toast after the 10-minute mark. It hurts. I know that. I have learned and I have grown. As TV analyst Kenny Smith pointed out in the postgame coverage, UVA was unable to adjust once UMBC forced the Cavs to play from behind.

"That was in the scouting report. That is all it was".

"We're not this nerdy", Horvath pleaded, waving his arms in an attempt to stop UMBC from becoming a punchline after delivering a shocking knockout blow. They were clicking. They are good. The "powerhouse" chess team, Portmann said.
