1 UVA vs 16 UMBC 2018 NCAA TOURNAMENT RD 1 LIVESTREAM
Are you kidding me???? The score is 52-40 in favor of number 16 seed UMBC over number 1 seed Virginia with 7 minutes to go in the 2nd half. I cannot say that I saw this coming. But I can say at the start of the game when UMBC broke the huddle for the starting jump ball. I could see the confidence in their faces and body language. I was thinking these guys are underestimating Virginia. They are saying these guys are not that good we can take them. Partly because UVA is not a athletic juggernaut.
Then I thought that UVA is probably doing the same thing. Thinking these guys are going to be easy. Combine those two ingredients and that is a recipe for disaster for UVA.
To make it even worst. When I heard that UMBC specialty was also defense. Going up against a UVA team who is also a defensive Ace team. But UMBC is also very good at the three. I was like up oh. If UMBC can play some solid defense against a UVA team that is not very good on offense and get that Three point game going. UVA could be in trouble. I was right….
