What is Your Greatest NCAA Tournament Memory?
« on: September 04, 2020, 10:09:35 pm »

As an alum of a mid-major school, there is nothing better than seeing your school win a game in the tournament. I was in attendance when Wofford beat Seton Hall two years ago for our first-ever tourney win!

Most positive?  Villanova beat Georgetown in 1985 when I had to go to bed as a kid, but my dad hung toilet paper outside my room in the morning with "V!" so I know who won

Worst?  BC loses in the Elite 8 to Florida in 1994 when "Disco" Dan Cross hit three shots in a row to put the Gators ahead for good

Hanging on that mid major thread, watching Lehigh (somewhat of a local school and I knew alums from there) beat Duke as a 15/2 was fantastic. Non-local, but who could forget when UMBC Cinderella'd into history with their blow out over #1 Virginia to become the first #16 to beat a #1. That was incredible to watch. Because not only did they win, but they won by 20 points!

It was amazing to watch UMBC just continue to hang around and then slowly build that lead up in the second half. Even more impressive was that they almost made it to the Sweet 16, giving Kansas State a great game in the second round.

I was at the Final 4 in 2018 which was very cool and a lot of fun.
