UMBC has made NCAA Tournament history.

The University of Maryland-Baltimore County became the first No. 16 seed to beat a No. 1 seed after upsetting Virginia 74-54.

This was a shocker.

Virginia was the unanimous No. 1 team in the AP poll.

They were no match for the Retrievers, especially after halftime. The game was tied at the half.

UMBC looked like the No. 1 seed.
