On a Friday night in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2018, the entire sports world stopped and stared. Finally, casual college basketball fans said, a 16-seed beat a 1-seed.

When a Jairus Lyles-powered UMBC Terriers squad topped the Virginia Cavaliers by 20 points in the Spectrum Center that night, it was something that had never happened before in men’s college basketball. When you talk about it, be sure to put an emphasis on the “men’s.”

Because a 16-seed had beaten a No. 1 seed before in college basketball. Before there was UMBC, there was the Harvard Crimson women’s basketball team. Before history at the Spectrum Center, there was chaos at Maples Pavilion. Before Virginia, there was Stanford.

The real first 16-over-1 upset was Harvard’s 71-67 triumph over Stanford in 1998.
