1/16 Day: SportsChannel8 Takeover of The David Glenn Show

Articles, Podcast, The SC8 Podcast

In case you weren’t aware, 1/16 is a holiday around these parts.

Yup, #116Day is the day we celebrate all the times a 1-seed was upset by a 16-seed in the NCAA Tournament. People gave gifts, ate slow-cooked foods, and shared facts and figures around the historic UMBC upset that still resonates with college basketball fans to this day.


To commemorate the occasion, we took over the statewide David Glenn Show to celebrate with hoops fans all across the great state of North Carolina. You can listen to the show using the links below:

Hour 1:  We introduce ourselves and welcome everyone to the #116Day party. At 12:30 Ben Swain drops by to hand out mid-week ACC Awards, and crunch the numbers on how long #116Day might be around.

Hour 2:  What 3 fast food franchises would you have cater a championship dinner? And what are the biggest upsets with a North Carolina tie?

Hour 3: We talk to UMBC head coach Ryan Odom about the historic 16-over-1 upset his team pulled over Virginia.
