Odds are stacked against Sweet 16 hopefuls UMBC, Marshall

No. 16 seed UMBC is in uncharted territory. And history doesn't bode well for No. 13 seed Marshall. But both teams already have defied big odds to reach the second round. What's one more win?

Breaking down Marshall's surprising win (1:18)

ESPN Stats and Information  

(13) Marshall beats (4) Wichita State to pick up the first NCAA Tournament win in school history as Jon Elmore matches a school NCAA Tournament record with 27 points (Cebe Price in 1956). The last Marshall player to score 25 or more points in the NCAA Tournament was Mike D'Antoni in 1972. Mike's brother Dan now coaches Marshall. Oh, Mike coaches, too.

Ben Fawkes ESPN Staff Writer 

No. 13 Marshall wins outright 81-75 over No. 4 Wichita State as a 13-point underdog. Wow. Biggest upset of the tourney so far.

Kyle Bonagura ESPN Staff Writer 

Marshall is giving Wichita State all it can handle here in San Diego, but this might only be a preview of what is to come from the Thundering Herd. They'll return their top nine scorers next season.

No. 11 Xavier moves to 11-1 with a 81-77 win against Marshall, but the Thundering Herd made it interesting in the second half. Marshall trailed by 20 at halftime and slowly chipped away at the lead falling just short. Xavier had five players score in double figures.

ESPN's BPI projects Middle Tennessee to roll in Saturday night's Conference USA championship game. The Blue Raiders are a "credible at-large team," according to Eamonn Brennan, if they lose to potential bid-thief Marshall.

No. 24 Cincinnati survives at home with a 93-91 win against Marshall in overtime. Troy Caupian's game-winner with 0.7 seconds remaining gave the victory to Mick Cronin's team. The Thundering Herd drained 17 3s over 45 minutes, but couldn't quite pull off the upset.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Cincinnati hadn't allowed an opponent to make more than 10 3s in a game all season. But Marshall has made 14 in the first half alone. Led by 21 points from Stevie Browning, the Thundering Herd lead the No. 24 Bearcats 50-38 at Fifth Third Arena with 20 minutes to play.
