March Madness

March 26, 2007

I love this time of year! There’s nothing like seeing the underdog upset the favorite, or the last second shot, or the wild celebration of a team and it’s fans after a big victory…. unfortunately, there hasn’t been many of these moments in the NCAA Tournament this year. Oh, there’s been a few minor upsets – VCU over Duke, Winthrop over Notre Dame – but really, these weren’t earth-shakin’ moments. But as I sat down Saturday to watch the big Ohio State/ Memphis game, I happened upon the second half of the NCAA Division II Championship. Barton College vs. Winona State. Who? That’s what I said. I had to look them up on the computer to figure out where they’re from. But let me tell you, this was by far the best game I’ve watched this year. Here’s a little background: Winona State is the most dominant Division II team in years. They won the championship last year and they haven’t lost a game since the first week of January…. of 2006. Barton College got to the championship game with a lot of luck, scrappy play, and a few close calls. Winona State breezed into the game and pretty much had control the whole time…. until the last 45 seconds. If you have a few minutes, sit back and enjoy these last moments of the Division II Championship. It’s as good a game as you’ll ever see.

Oh, and by the way, Winona State’s in Minnesota, Barton College is in North Carolina.

    Now that is some March Madness! We all love the underdog and the completely unexpected last second thrillers.

    When I was at Outback, I briefly saw a clip of the pandemonium after this game, but I never heard what it was all about. Thanks for posting this clip. That was incredible.
