No. 16 seed UMBC beats No. 1 seed Virginia in biggest NCAA Tournament upset ever


Before Friday, a No. 16 seed had never beaten a No. 1 seed, much less a No. 1 overall seed. They were 0-135. But the University of Maryland-Baltimore County -- yes, the UMBC Retrievers -- proved even the longest odds aren't insurmountable. UMBC stunned the world and defeated top seed Virginia 74-54 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, and with relative ease. (CBS Sports)
