UMBC etches name in sports lore, routs top seed Virginia

Las Vegas Bettor Loses $20K After Virginia Loss While Another Loses $100K on Wichita State

Virginia was the number one overall seed in the NCAA tournament.

Going into Friday night's game in Charlotte, No. 16 seeds in the men's tournament had been 0-135 all time.

Now the Retrievers must find a way to come down from the emotional high before they return to action against ninth-seeded Kansas State in the second round Sunday. Though the game was tied at half, when the Cavaliers fell behind, they panicked, hoisting up ill-advised three-point shots and missing nearly all of them.

UMBC kept this game within reach and represented the University of Maryland Baltimore County strongly.

"We were talking about it before the game, just trying to go out here and make history, doing it for our program, our teammates, our coaching staff", Lyles said. Then, we had a historic loss being the first one seed to lose.

UVA is well known for their suffocating defense, but in every respect, UMBC played the best defense they have ever played on the biggest stage.

The explosion of the transfer market has spread out talent like never before - leaving overlooked players like UMBC's Jairus Lyles at mid- and low-majors across the country. "When I walked over to the sideline and up in front of the sea of yellow of our fan section, they were going insane with us".

Mueller subpoenas Trump business
A lawyer said on March 15 that the company has told the public since July that it is cooperating with Mueller's investigation. It appears that Mueller is looking into whether foreign money had any role in President Trump's political activities.

If you went to bed early on Friday night, you kinda missed something. "Kansas State won, right? Tying it up with them at halftime definitely gave us more confidence". But the Spiders forced the Orange to die on the 3-point line and made history.

"The biggest thing I love about this is, I love seeing them smile", UMBC coach Ryan Odom said of his players after their once-in-a-lifetime shocker, a 74-54 drubbing of the Cavaliers.

Data from the U.S. Department of Education shows the University of Virginia's operating budget for its athletic department is about $92.7 million compared to UMBC's at about $12.9 million.

Virginia's Ty Jerome, when asked if he knew that a No. 16 seed had never beaten a No. 1 before in men's play, said: "I think everyone is aware of that".

It was the largest margin of defeat for the Cavaliers since last year's NCAA Tournament, when they were 65-39 losers to Florida in a second-round NCAA game in Orlando, Florida. A typical team that makes half of its two-pointers and a third of its threes might score anywhere from, say, 48 to 72 points on 60 shots taken in the painted area in front of the hoop. They really did. I said that to Tracy [Wolfson] at CBS after the game, in terms of ACC wins and ACC Conference tournament championship.

"It's like your first Fortnite victory, honestly", Nolan Gerrity said in an interview recorded by Mark Armstrong of WTVD-TV in Durham, N.C., referencing the mega-popular video game that's caught the attention of rapper Drake and Pittsburgh Steelers wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster. "But, certainly it doesn't take away from the happiness that I have for our guys".
