Biggest upset ever?

Sixteen seed seed UMBC,that is The University of Maryland-Baltimore County, pulled off a sports shocker by knocking off 1 seed Virginia last night. No 16 had ever beaten a top seed, much less blown them out. 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Jairus Lyles couldn’t suppress a smile, knowing that a school known more for chess than hoops had finally made it happen — a 16 ousting a 1 in March Madness.

The University of Maryland-Baltimore County stunned the sports world by pulling off the most shocking upset in college basketball history, hammering Virginia 74-54 on Friday night to become the first No. 16 seed ever to beat a No. 1 seed in the men’s NCAA Tournament.

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