On Friday night, UMBC shocked the college basketball universe by dethroning the No. 1 overall seed cardura no rx, zithromax reviews. Virginia Cavaliers. Not only did it represent their first ever NCAA tournament win, but it would mark the first time in men’s hoops that a No. 16 toppled a No. 1. But Sunday night would provide a different story for the Retrievers.
And yet, UMBC could’ve pulled this one out as well.
Well, it was fun y’all. KState may have won (50-43), but we hope to have won your hearts.

Let’s get this out of the way: neither team set the court ablaze on Sunday night. The teams would combine to shoot just 35.2 percent from the field, not to mention an anemic 20.6 percent from long range. But on Friday night, those shots were falling for the Retrievers. Sunday night, they did not.
And yet, they only lost by seven points. They would actually finish with one fewer turnover (17) than K-State). And despite getting out rebounded by seven (35 to 28), UMBC would put themselves in position to win. If only they could’ve made their free throws… 9-of-18 just isn’t going to get it done. K-State would bury 13-of-18 overall, missing a couple in the closing seconds with the game already in hand.
But who cares about all that? UMBC did what no other men’s college program has done. This team will be remembered forever, and for all the right reasons. As for the Wildcats, they get to prepare for some other Wildcats. You know, the ones from Kentucky.
Thanks for the ride, UMBC!
