The Retrievers of University of Maryland, Baltimore County pulled off the unthinkable on Friday night by dismantling the overall No. 1 seed, Virginia, in the NCAA Tournament.
The win marked the first time in NCAA Tournament history that a No. 16 seed beat a No. 1 seed.
The Retrievers were led by Montgomery County product Jairus Lyles who finished with a game-high 28 points and added four rebounds and three assists in UMBC’s 74-54 victory.
“I think we had the confidence coming into the game,” said Lyles. “I don’t think there was a point in the game that we thought we couldn’t play with them.”
