I would call that a "surprise" or "unexpected" or "underdog" or similar win, sure. Not a "massacre".

When Jimmy V's NC State team beat Houston at the buzzer in '83. That was a HUGE upset, it was not a massacre.

Edited to add -- Now, UNLV beating Duke 103-73 in the 1990 championship game. THAT was a massacre.
