Kentucky will play Kansas State in the Sweet Sixteen

UMBC's only other tournament appearance came during in the 2007-08 season.

Buckle up, ladies and gentlemen.

"Got the steal and dunk and just gave us a lot of energy and that boost to show us we could win this game, and we pulled through and got the win", said Sneed.

The University of Maryland-Baltimore County will have to settle for making basketball history.

On Friday night, UMBC shocked the college basketball universe by dethroning the No. 1 overall seed Virginia Cavaliers.

"Maura, despite being just 5'7", 140 pound, led the Retrievers through their games, playing all but two minutes, insuring that fans who may not have known the Retrievers when the tournament began won't forget the team now.

UMBC's brief, but historic run ended with a 50-43 loss to ninth seeded Kansas State on Sunday night.

Maybe this was how it had to end for UMBC.

For the NCAA tournament, aka March Madness, there are four divisions: South, East, West, and Midwest. Wade is the team's leading scorer with 16.5 points per game. While the opening round produced some very surprising results, it was nothing compared to what we saw in the Round of 32.

While the 16-seeded Retrievers upset Virginia 74 to 54, they went on to lose to Kansas State two days later.


No. 13 Marshall, No. 11 Syracuse and No. 10 Butler are the other double-digit seeds still alive.

K-State had to win a back-and-forth fight.

With 10 seconds remaining, UMBC substituted in the bench players who worked hard to help their team get to where they are today. Kansas State forward Dean Wade is listed as questionable to play due to a foot injury. (I) see where he picks his spots and what he liked to do and how he likes to score.

"We go into every game thinking we have a chance to win", said guard Joe Sherburne, who had 14 points after provided a huge spark early in the second half. "You made all of Baltimore proud this week". The only obstacles between the Wildcats and yet another Final Four appearance are Thursday's matchup against Kansas State and, if they emerge victorious from that, an Elite Eight contest against the victor of Nevada-Loyola-Chicago. "Me and my buddy Dan went to UMBC, so we spent all day talking up how much we were going to bet". The school filed for multiple trademarks with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, including "Retriever Nation", according to a report by ESPN's Darren Rovell.

The Atlantic Coast Conference entered the Round of 64 with several legitimate contenders to emerge as national champions.

The only game this season in which the Cavaliers' highly respected locker-room leader had fewer points was in the ACC opener against visiting Boston College, when he scored one in a 59-58 win on December 30.

The turning point of the game occurred in the second half with UMBC down 38-37.

The ACC has four of the 16 teams left, but Duke provides the conference with their best hope for a title. Given their confidence level is through the roof here at the Spectrum Center after beating the unanimous No. 1 team in the AP poll, there is nothing they feel they can't accomplish.

No. 1 seeds in the NCAA Tournament were 135-0.
