4. UMBC vs. Virginia State (2018)
Everybody took it for granted that Virginia had this game in the bag. However, the Hoos proceeded to suffer a chaotic meltdown in front of the entire nation. UMBC rattled their foes and overcame the 20.5 favorites. Insanely, UMBC was the 168th ranked team in the U.S on KenPom (via SBNation).
They also suffered some embarrassing and crushing losses earlier in the season. But they rocked Virginia to become the first No.16 seed to beat a No.1 seed. This shouldn’t have happened because of the difference in scale between their programs. In the end, magic happened and the Retrievers won 75-54.
