UMBC defeating Virginia (if it holds) will be in the top 5 all time upsets in sports history. Almost like Douglas beating Tyson. Doubt 1% of legit brackets had UMBC winning this game.

Someone in Vegas is getting stupid money tonight if they win.

That's ball game.  For a team that prides itself on defense, UVA really choked this one.

Wow. This is going to happen.

Itís because theyíre wearing their Hickory-esque jerseys.

How does this happen?

UBMC just played loose this whole 2nd half.  Usually big underdogs eventually realize how close they are to the big upset and then they stop being so aggressive.  Not this team.  kept playing their game....amazing.

Limited their mistakes, too.  When UVA ratcheted up the pressure, UMBC handled it well.  Credit to Maura for taking care of the ball and calmly nailing those last 2 FTs.
