UMBC guard Jairus Lyles joins The Plug to discuss the team's historic win over No. 1 Virginia, his shot over Vermont in the America East finals, his thoughts on mid-majors
Nobody knew UMBC before the Retrievers pulled off college basketball's biggest upset. But suddenly stars and celebs were talking about them and fans were waiting until all hours to congratulate them. Inside the 72 hours that changed their lives.
UMBC will present coach Ryan Odom with a long-term contract that includes a salary increase that will help keep Odom with the Retrievers, athletic director Tim Hall told ESPN.
Kansas State kept the Retrievers from moving on to the Sweet 16, but the unlikely team from Maryland will always have its place in history.
Barry Brown scored 18 points, and Kansas State ended UMBC's brief, but historic run in the NCAA Tournament with a 50-43 victory on Sunday night.
The magical ride of the UMBC men's basketball team ended Sunday night when the Retrievers suffered a 50-43 loss to Kansas State in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
Warriors star Steph Curry supplied limited-release shoes and "swag" for No. 16 seed UMBC that the Retrievers wore against Kansas State on Sunday.
On the heels of their historic victory as a No. 16 seed, UMBC has filed for a few trademarks since the school didn't have "Retrievers" or "Retriever Nation" trademarked.
No. 16 seed UMBC is in uncharted territory. And history doesn't bode well for No. 13 seed Marshall. But both teams already have defied big odds to reach the second round. What's one more win?
The Retrievers are what a Cinderella story looks like. As they revel in the glory of their historic achievement, the question remains: Can they continue their run?
UMBC alum Eric Barger and his friends will "have at least a couple hundred" on Sunday's game against Kansas State after their $800 money-line bet on the Retrievers against No. 1 overall seed Virginia yielded a $16,000 profit.
UMBC pulled the upset of upsets in the opening round. Do the Retrievers -- or any of the lower seeds -- plan on a second act?
KSU's leading scorer Dean Wade hasn't officially been ruled out, but even if he sees time Sunday vs. UMBC, Wade would likely not see much action, coach Bruce Weber said on Saturday.
Sure, it could happen. A No. 16 could beat a No. 1. But would it ever really, actually, truly happen? Yes, it finally did. No. 16 UMBC beat No. 1 Virginia in the most improbable, do-you-believe-that-just-happened upset in NCAA tournament history.
Only 20 years old, Daria Kasatkina is a big-time player. Her win against Venus Williams in the Indian Wells semifinals was the latest example of what the future of the WTA might look like.
What just happened? UMBC did everything right, particularly on offense, while the Cavaliers had their second-worst scoring night of the season.
UMBC's historic win over No. 1 Virginia was the second-largest upset by point-spread standards since the NCAA tournament field expanded in 1985.
