UMBC made history tonight when they became the first 16 seed to beat a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament after defeating Virginia by a wide margin.

As a 22.5 point underdog going into the game, UMBC also became the biggest upset in NCAA tourney history, a record previously held by Morfolk university.

Biggest upset in tournament history was in 2012 when Norfolk St beat Missouri as 21.5 point underdogs. Virginia was -22.5 against UMBC tonight.

Before the game started, several hoops experts including CBS Sports’ Seth Davis mocked UMBC for not having a chance in hell to win the game.

UMBC’s Twitter account straight up clowned Davis throughout the entire night.

Davis was a good sport about the whole thing and ate his crow like a man.

UMBC didn’t stop with Seth and continued crushing the haters.
