BREAKING: #16 UMBC Takes Down #1 Virginia In Biggest Upset in NCAA Tournament History

For the first time in NCAA Tournament history, a #16 seed has defeated a #1 seed as UMBC has defeated Virginia 74 to 54. Virginia came into the tournament as the top overall ranked seed in the tournament and had only lost 2 games the entire season.

The closest 1 vs. 16 seed games consist of Oklahoma defeating East Tennessee State 72-71 in 1989, Michigan State going to overtime against Murray State in 1990, and Georgetown barely surviving also in 1989 against Princeton.

UMBC has never beaten a team from the ACC until defeating Virginia today.
