In case you missed it, the #16 seed University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) defeated the #1 seed University of Virginia in the first round of the American East Tournament of March Madness with a final score of 74-54...aka shattering everyone's brackets.
Prior to this game, No. 16 seeds were 0-135 in tournament history when playing the No. 1 seed, so needless to say the UMBC Retrievers' story has turned the internet into a frenzy and these are some of our favorite tweets:
