Before Friday, a No. 16 seed had never beaten a No. 1 seed, much less a No. 1 overall seed. They were 0-135. But the University of Maryland-Baltimore County – yes, the little-known UMBC Retrievers – proved even the longest of odds aren’t totally insurmountable.
UMBC stunned the world and defeated top overall seed Virginia 74-54 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, and with relative ease.
The GamingToday Bracket Buster Contest will pay the $10,000 prize evenly distributing it to the eight players for winning the historic No. 16 beats No. 1 seed challenge!
