March Madness is here now! And as most of our brackets are busted, we should learn this one lesson: expect the unexpected. Here are a few of the biggest upsets:
13th seeded Buffalo defeats 4th seeded Arizona:
This one came as an early shock. Arizona came in having one of the most talented teams in the tournament, in which many people believed that Arizona was seeded too low. With 2 or 3 NBA type talents, it was amazing to see this defeat. With that being said, Buffalo simply out hustled Arizona. They went after every loose ball, every rebound, and simply played with more hunger and heart.
16th seeded UMBC defeats 1st seeded Virginia:
This is by far the biggest upset in tournament history. For the first time ever, a 16th seed beat a 1st seed. UMBC did it in a amazing fashion, defeating Virginia by 20 pointa. Similar to the Buffalo/Arizona game, UMBC outworked Virigina. In addition to the hustle, UMBC hit over 10 3’s in the game. Can’t wait to see what’s next!
