If you’re not familiar with college basketball, here’s a quick recap: the University of Maryland-Baltimore County not only pulled off the greatest upset in the history of the NCAA Tournament, they demolished their opponent, the University of Virginia, by 20 points. So, how does that feel?

“It’s like your first Fortnite victory, honestly,” says Nolan Gerrity in a postgame Q&A recorded by Mark Armstrong of WTVD-TV, Durham, N.C. By the way, Fortnite is made about a half-hour down I-40 from Durham, in Cary, N.C.
“Battle Royale might be a little too far,” he laughs, so yeah, they’re staying within themselves despite torching Virginia — the No. 1 team in the nation and the tournament’s No. 1 overall seed — by 20 points, 74-54. It wasn’t some buzzer-beater or last-second play. It was total annihilation.
Gang, this is where we are with Fortnite. The first win in 136 games, 34 years, of a 16-seed facing a 1-seed in the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament, and some guy off the end of the bench name checks Fortnite in the postgame sound bite. Take me away.
