For the first time in history, a 16-seed beat a 1-seed in the NCAA tournament. DID YOU HEAR ME?! A 16-SEED BEAT A 1-SEED.
IT FINALLY HAPPENED.
After 16-seeds previously went 0-135, the record stands at 1-135 thanks to those UMBC Golden Retrievers.
First of all, the UMBC account led the entire damn way
