Special BSJ Daily Briefing: Yes, Virginia, a 16 can take down a 1

(USAToday Sports)

In case you missed it, history was made last night in the NCAA tournament.

Maryland-Baltimore County became the first-ever 16th-seed to topple a No. 1 seed since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985 as it stunned Virginia 74-54 in the South Region in Charlotte.

Teams seeded 16th were 0-135 before Friday night.

The Cavaliers were the top overall seed in the tournament.

And they were dominated by the Retrievers. Dominated.
