roughly 11 minutes left in the game.  UMBC outplaying them.

But fundamental basketball

Exactly.  UMBC is a bunch of short scrawny looking guys who don't look like they could handle a #1 seed.  But they are getting position and rebounds.  Passing the ball to create open looks.  Refreshing.

Boardon Hamsay:

Smdh....

alohawg:

Potential first ever in the making. This is fun, again.

Breems:

Wow. Tuning in now.

HamIAm:

UMBC point guard is 5' 8"

Breems:

Dude, UMBC looks like my high school team. What is going on?

#10 Is very talented and in the zone. Kid's game is a throwback, especially his drives and finishes.

HogAlum99:

Even though Iím still frustrated about the Hogs, this is why I continue to watch every year, even when we stink!!!

Maybe after this game...

HamIAm:

#11 for Virginia screaming at the official "come on" 

Ched "UglyUncle" Carpenter:

It has never happened before.  I remember in 95 when the Hogs were a 1 seed that we got all we wanted in our first round game.  Anyone else remember that?

PonderinHog:

The ball keeps going in for UMBC!

Breems:

This is amazing.

HamIAm:

WHat was that guy doing to his tongue??

I assume something to help with cramps?

010HogFan:

Their offense is so smooth. They know how to dish it and kick. Our Hogs could never...

You never lick Lance crackers for the salt? Kid can also trash a bag of double stuff Oreos in under 3 minutes.

Yes Texas Southern was a #15 and gave us all we wanted in Austin.

HamIAm:

The shortest guy on the court picks off the pass.


Ched "UglyUncle" Carpenter:

Wow...are you seeing this?

alohawg:

It's happening, first time ever a 16 beats a 1. Wow  :o

I can just see the Trivial Pursuit NCAA Tourney Edition question:  On the day #1 Virginia lost to #16 UMBC what other ridiculously over-seeded 7th seed lost to #10 Butler. :-)

#$@* donít jinx it. This whole @#$&ing thread is teetering on the brink....

Adam Stokes:

Well Arkansas fans, today could've been much worse. We could've been Virginia.

PonderinHog:

History in the making...



latrops:

It is really going to happen.  And it isn't even close.  Sixteen beats one convincingly.

But they're the better team!   :)  Not an upset!

Ched "UglyUncle" Carpenter:

Virginia basketball will be involved in the two biggest upsets in basketball history...unless a miracle happens here.

greenEGnHAWGS:

This is crazy!

Whatever the hell that was our guys need to be constantly licking that unknown substance every second they are out of the game!

Boardon Hamsay:

This has to be the penultimate d!ck punch to UVA fans. First to be a tournament worst.
