It was such a beatdown there was no definitive moment, you know?

Definitely not a defining moment, but there was one sequence (and I'd have to go back and check the exact time, but I think it was around 4:45 left) where UMBC made a bucket, Virgina came back and Mauro stole it and charged up, dumped it off to the corner who hit a three.  That was the dagger.  It seemed like at that point, Virginia was done.
The other play that sticks out is when the whistle was blown and Lyles just threw it up there, just fucking around, and still drained the basket from 30-ft away.
