Redefining the Sweet 16
It was destined to happen one day. My timeline was within the next 10-15 years. But it happened a little earlier than that…
For the first time in NCAA college basketball tournament history, a #16-seed has upset a #1-seed!
The UMBC Retrievers (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) not only defeated but dominated the overall #1-seed UVA Cavaliers 74-54 in Charlotte, North Carolina just moments ago. While UVA would’ve won 99 games out of 100 against UMBC, the Retrievers secured that one win at the most important time on the biggest stage to make college basketball history. Perhaps it’s fitting this game happened on March 16. As in march on, 16…march on.
And the college basketball
Retrievers Underdogs for the ages will do just that in this tournament fittingly called March Madness.
