1 Virginia losing to 16 UMBC

Virginia is down by 12 points with 16 minutes left. A 1 seed has never lost to a 16 seed. Could be history here.

Virginia fell right into the

Virginia fell right into the gameplay. Rushed thier offence and UMBC cooked them in transition. I knew Virginia didnt particularly excel in transition but I never knew they were this terrible.

I feel like both of the upsets I watched UMBC and Buffalo these teams would have won 4 out of 5 times.Neither game felt like an upset. UMBC and Buffalo both have legit chances against Kansas St. and Kentucky.

Oh Canada, I didn’t exactly

Oh Canada, I didn’t exactly call the upset. I just said UVA isn’t the team that will runAway from anybody and UVA could be in trouble if they go cold from 3 and UMBC gets hot, which is basically what happened. I envisioned a possible last second buzzerbeater or overtime thriller, not a 20 point blowout.

It’s shocking because

It’s shocking because Virginia was the best team in college basketball all season and of course a 16 has never beaten a 1. We all knew it was going to happen eventually and props to UMBC for making history.

I didn’t pick Virginia to go very far in the tournament, although I would have never imagined they’d lose in the first round. They were not your typical one seed in terms of overall talent level, and the injury to hunter took away one of their more valuable contributors. They won all year with defense, execution and by controlling tempo. But they are not a team with guys who can really beat you individually and they are not built to come back from a deficit.

The first 4 mins of the second half were the key. Once UMBC started to stretch the lead a little bit, and Virginia had to get out of character, you could tell they were in major trouble.

HaHa!! Defense was their

HaHa!! Defense was their calling card all season.This season they didn't allow an opponent to score over 70 points.But U Must Be Cinderella had 53 FIFTY THREE In the 2nd half. Kudos to the former Virginia ballboy,now UMBC coach for Executing a great game plan for cracking Virginia's system. They really missed Hunter. But I doubt he would've help them Avoid that Beat Down last night!!
