Unreal.

20.5 point underdogs and they win by 20.

#1 seeds now 1-135 against #16 seeds.

Well done to those kids and coaches on UMBC!

That Michigan shot was wild. I was in a bar in Houston and was the only one celebrating amongst all the stunned H-town folks :clap:

Damn, brutal tourney this year. I imagine there are no perfect brackets in the whole world at this point.

Steph Curry effect happening. I expect to see a lot more 3's attempted and made in NCAA going forward. Nova looked great and should win tonight.

They are talking about removing the three point line in youth basketball to address this. Have them focus on other skills so it does not become just a bomb fest from deep.

The only game I've seen all tournament was the Loyola/Michigan game on Saturday. I was rooting for Loyola. At times neither team could make a bucket. Michigan made the plays down the stretch and Wagner just had his way with Loyola. The kid was all over the place on both ends of the court. They never blocked him out on the boards.
