NCAA Tournament Nevada beats Texas in overtime

UMBC's victory claims the top spot as biggest NCAA Tournament upset as the first No. 16 seed to be a No. 1, though points-wise it's runner-up to No. 15 Norfolk beating No. 2 Missouri six years ago to the day (yes, March 16, 2012).

But who steers this ship?

UMBC outscored Virginia 53-33 in the second half. For its men's athletic teams, Virginia has about $1.16 million compared to UMBC's at $90,964.

Capsules on each are below. Can the Retrievers' star scorer, who came up limping a few times in Friday's historic, lead No. 16 to the Sweet 16?

The fact that a 16-seed had never beaten a 1-seed is something pretty much everyone knew. So, for example, UMBC earned one unit for just appearing in the First Round. It meant that the Retrievers became the first America East team to win three postseason tournament games. UMBC also won the battle of the boards.

Hall quite literally said it best when asked how to describe what just happened. "He has laid the foundation this year for sustained success". I have been able to mature as a player and as a man.

Nonetheless, the limited historical record does not show that the authors of astonishing early-round upsets continue to overachieve.

$20,000 more for reaching the championship game. This was the first mid-major double-digit seed - i.e. a traditional Cinderella - to make the Final Four, and this was the game that put it there.

Before coaching Lenior-Rhyne, Odom coached at UNC Charlotte from 2010 to 2015.

Odom was then interim head coach during January 2015 and went 8-11, coaching Torin Dorn to Conference USA freshman-of-the-year accolades and Pierria Henry to third-team all-conference honors, UMBC athletics reported.

"I always let him play", Odom said. "Above all, Ryan is a teacher who has a strong commitment to academic success and the welfare of his athletes", Hall remarked. Tony Bennett's squad, which literally plays at the slowest pace of all 351 Division I teams, attempted to speed things up in an effort to close the gap, and it looked like they were trying to read a Bulgarian translation of Finnegans Wake.

Virginia entered the 2018 NCAA Tournament as the No. 1 overall seed after going 31-2 this season, including 20-1 in ACC competition.

Instead of trying to chip away at the lead and pound the ball inside against the smaller Retrievers, Virginia repeatedly shot 3-pointers. Wilkins talked about his faith in how the team will respond next season. Both who would score 23 second-half points for a total of 28 points. That enabled him to compete athletically for his fourth year. And it certainly has to be the single biggest bracket buster of all time.

Lyles' honors are also impressive. Effectively the entire second half was just a complete beatdown. Well, knocking off the No. 1 team in the country by 20 points in the first round of the NCAA Tournament should do it.
