Virginia Cavaliers will push forward with De'Andre Hunter in NCAA Tournament

They slow offense utilizing its size didn't even get the No. 2 overall seed one win in the 2018 tournament.

The University of Maryland-Baltimore County stunned the college basketball world by pulling off the most shocking upset in men's NCAA Tournament history, hammering Virginia 75-54 on Friday night to become the first No. 16 seed ever to beat a No. 1 seed.

But UMBC didn't just beat Virginia, it dominated throughout the second half. UMBC was more than a 20-point underdog heading into the matchup.

This came when it mattered the most - in the NCAA Tournament.

Jairus Lyles led UMBC with 28 points, while Joe Sherburne added 14 points and pulled down 6 rebounds.

Peskov reiterated Russian denials of involvement in the attack that has left both Skripals in critical condition. They said the attack involved the first "offensive use" of a nerve agent in Europe since the Second World War.

The last two years, SportsLine's computer simulation correctly predicted nine out of 12 double-digit NCAA Tournament upsets in the first round with their computer algorithm. Sophomores Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome scored 15 points apiece for Virginia. This is the third time Virginia has been a No. 1 seed under coach Tony Bennett, losing in the Elite Eight to No. 10 Syracuse in 2016 and the Sweet 16 to No. 4 Michigan State in 2014. Dave Odom was an assistant on then-Virginia men's basketball coach Terry Holland's staff from 1982 through '89, and Ryan served as a ballboy while growing up in Charlottesville, a short walk from University Hall.

They play their games in the UMBC Event Center in an arena that fits 5,000 people, about 23,000 fewer people than the audience that witnessed them knock out Virginia Friday night in Charlotte.

But Hunter sat by himself on a folding chair watching a pregame layup line wearing blue sweats and a brace on his broken left wrist that has him out for the rest of the season.

DEFENSE: Virginia has the country's best defense, surrendering just 53.4 points per game.
