Well I never thought it would happen in my lifetime but it finally did. Even if they were going to beat UVA, who would have figured that it would have been a 20 point win?

And this is a team that wouldn't have even been in this position had it not been for a 3 pointer game winner they got in the America East final.

This is my thought also. I thought a 16 would eek one out at the buzzer. But UMBC absolutely dominated every facet of the game.

Give Tony Bennett credit for a professional interview outside locker room with Tracy Wolfson.

That South bracket is now a complete clusterbuck. There's a potential you could have 3 double digit seeds in the Sweet 16.

That's enough, Reggie Miller.

That's enough, Chris Webber.

Looks like Porter Jr is doing more to hurt his team than help it.

Really hoping Loyola hangs on. Their head coach could run my program anytime and anywhere. He isn't just a great coach but understands how to put fans into the seats.

The MVC has now earned as much money as the Pac-12 has this year from NCAA tournament performance.
That's enough, Reggie Miller.
