The Retrievers are the No. 16 seed in the South region of the tournament.

If you're not familiar with college basketball, here's a quick recap: the University of Maryland-Baltimore County not only pulled off the greatest upset in the history of the NCAA Tournament, they demolished their opponent, the University of Virginia, by 20 points.

With every basket, fans in Spectrum Center who weren't wearing Virginia colors cheered loudly for the Retrievers of the America East Conference, who pulled away from a 21-21 halftime tie with an unbelievable second half against the team that entered the tournament ranked first nationally in scoring defense.

The two teams were tied at 21 at halftime as Lyles proved to be the deciding factor for the Retrievers.

Virginia certainly could have used the most versatile member of its roster in the first half against the Retrievers, who kept it close throughout with just enough stops on defense and timely 3-point shooting. Virginia had allowed just 54.3 points per game this season, the fewest in the nation.

UMBC shot 67.9 percent from the field in the second half and held Virginia to 42 percent after intermission. The Retrievers of UMBC defeat the Virginia Cavaliers in dramatic fashion 74-54. He also knocked down a pair of 3-pointers as UMBC built a 16-point lead. Sophomores Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome scored 15 points apiece for Virginia.

In a scintillating stretch of scoring prowess, Lyles made three free throws, a 3-pointer, back-to-back layups and a contested floater in the lane with the shot clock about to expire, all in a row. "I think we're going to have to learn the rest of it now".

For the victors, there is a game against Kansas State on Sunday to look forward to, where they will attempt to be the first team seeded thirteen or lower to make the Sweet Sixteen in five years.
