This week UMBC made history as the first ever No. 16 seed team to best a No. 1 seed in an NCAA men’s basketball tournament. The Retrievers’ season ended last night in a hard-fought round two, but our UMBC community will carry the pride of this moment with us for years to come. And, through this achievement, the nation has come to understand what a special place UMBC is.
Thank you to the men’s basketball team and to coach Ryan Odom for the grit you displayed all season. And thank you to the faculty, staff, students, alumni, and others in Retriever Nation for your tremendous support.
The UMBC community will continue to celebrate in the coming days and weeks. Please stay tuned for details, and enjoy the rest of your Spring Break.
