The UMBC Retrievers had lost 23 straight games to Vermont leading up to the America East Conference championship. Despite trailing in the second half, UMBC battled back to tie the game and possessed the ball with the shot clock off and the final seconds ticking down. Jairus Lyles held the ball for the last shot and buried a 3-pointer to win the game. For an encore, can coach Ryan Odom and his pack of Retrievers storm into the NCAA tournament and make history in a 1 vs. 16 game on the biggest stage?
