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.

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.
