UMBC sends perfect tweet after Virginia reaches Final Four

Virginia Basketball

UMBC sent a perfect tweet after Virginia outlasted Purdue in overtime on Saturday to reach the Final Four.

The Retrievers’ athletics account sent a tweet featuring a GIF of Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Great Gatsby” raising his glass in a toast.

This was UMBC’s way of tipping their cap to Virginia on the win.

Of course, UMBC was the school that knocked Virginia out of the tournament last year, making history by becoming the first 16 seed ever to eliminate a one seed. The 2018 upset win led to questions about whether Virginia and Tony Bennett could win in March. The Hoos have answered those questions by reaching the Final Four this year. And guess what? They still have a good shot at going even farther in the Tournament.
