The 2018 NCAA Tournament completed the First Round on Friday night and it is already a historic March Madness tournament.
In the most shocking upset in tournament history, UMBC became the first-ever No. 16 seed to defeat a No. 1 seed when they defeated the top-ranked Virginia Cavaliers, who were the top overall seed in the tournament. The Cavaliers also finished the college basketball regular season as the unanimous No. 1 team in the nation in the final AP Top 25 poll.
With the upset, people were left crumbling their busted brackets and tossing them in the trash.
But don’t worry, if your bracket is now useless, you are not alone.
According to ESPN, there are zero perfect brackets remaining after the UMBC upset of Virginia. There were 17.3 million entries in the ESPN bracket challenge.
