The University of Maryland, Baltimore County has become the first 16-seed in NCAA Tournament history to beat a No. 1 seed, shocking the world with a blowout win, 74-54, over Virginia.
We repeat: the University of Maryland, Baltimore County has done the impossible. Prior to Friday's historic upset, 16 seeds were a combined 0-135 in NCAA Tournament history.
And Virginia wasn't just a No. 1 seed. They were the No. 1 OVERALL seed, and they got destroyed by a team that was playing D2 just over a decade ago.
Up by 12 with under 8 minutes left in the game, UMBC's official Twitter account sent a message to the world: "RESPECT. US."
Senior guard Jairus Lyles was dominant with 28 points on 9-of-11 shooting for the Retrievers.
Hell hath frozen over.
