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.

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

Agreed. He’s really a classy guy.

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.
