March Madness 2018: Social media explodes over UMBC's win over Virginia

March Madness 2018: Social media explodes over UMBC's win over Virginia

This was bigger than Mike Tyson losing to Buster Douglas. This was Joe Namath beating the Colts, and "Hoosiers" in real life.

Finally, UMBC would start shooting the three and making baskets towards the end of the first half.

Here's what social media is saying about it! The upset tweeted around the world. The Cavaliers played at the slowest pace in all of college basketball this year, at just 59.4 possessions per 40 minutes. This was the year One Shining Moment came two weeks early. "We know it's do-or-die for everybody".

College basketball can't die, and nights like Friday are why. Virginia missed 13 of its first 14 before getting hot for a brief stretch late in the game. "If you don't come to play, you're going to get beat". "Once we saw that No. 16 seed we knew we had a chance to make history". They were easy for much of the nation to overlook.

With heart, according to coach Ryan Odom. Jairus Lyles led all scorers.

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

One reporter made a decision to ask the Cavaliers' Ty Jerome was about the momentous occasion after the game.

One thing that appeared clear to every Virginia player was that they were simply outplayed.

Odom earned a bachelor's degree in economics from Hampden-Sydney in 1996 and was a four-year starting point guard. He averages 20.4 points a game for the Retrievers.

He then quickly turns and jumps into a golf cart, along with a staff member, to investigate the gunshots at the 1200 building. Nikolas Cruz was charged with 17 counts of first degree premeditated murder and 17 counts of first degree attempted murder.

Lyles, the new governor of Maryland - if he wants to be - scored 23 of his 28 points in the second half.

In 2015-16, He earned America East second-team recognization and was the AE and College Sports Madness Player of the Week on February 7 and an AE winter-spring honor roll member. Now he's got himself a March legend for keeps. "It's always exciting to make history".

We can look around the inner sanctum of NCAA Tournament surprises and try to figure out where this should be placed.

UMBC's win over Virginia on Friday night was historic. Brown effectively checked National Player of the Year candidate Trae Young earlier in the season, and will bring that same tenacity to UMBC's breakout star. There was fair warning.

First of all, George Mason probably shouldn't have even been in the field. All worthy of mention. Statistical models tend to give 16-seeds anywhere from a 1% to a 5% chance of pulling off such an upset, depending on the relative strength of the teams. He explains why the bigger surprise is the fact that it took so long for a 16 to knock off a 1. "This game means a lot to them and, you know, just a special, special effort".

This UMBC feat is unique because it is... well, unique.

Fans of the Kansas State Wildcats have to feel conflicted about their Round of 32 game in the NCAA Tournament on Sunday. "They played well and we did not". Maybe more? Is there any time for them to fully understand what they've done? After suffering a heartbreaking one-point loss to Texas in the next round, Coppin State would not see the NCAA Tournament until 2008. We didn't pass the ball well. He has covered college basketball for 43 years, including 38 Final Fours.
