UMBC is currently beating Virginia in the NCAA Tournament, and at the time of this post, lead Virginia in the second half. If UMBC is able to hang on, they will become the first 16-seed to knock off a 1-seed in the history of the NCAA Tournament (Update: UMBC indeed won).
Everyone knows that. What everyone doesn’t know is what the heck “UMBC” stands for.

I stand corrected.
I also deeply respect the UMBC social-media person's devotion to unleashing torrents of shade in the midst of this madness. https://t.co/DJ3udgN4yu

Well, let me tell you! It’s University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
Their mascot is the Retrievers.
It’s a university with apparently 13.839 students according to Wikipedia.
The men’s basketball team won the America East conference tournament, and here they are in the NCAA Tournament for the second time.
You’ll know much, much more about them if they’re able to hang on for what would be one of the greatest moments in sports history.
