Excellent NCAA championship game tonight to culminate an all around outstanding basketball tournament. March madness indeed! University of North Carolina behind 26 points by Sean Mays came out victors over University of Illinois 75 -70.
Coach Roy Williams finally won a college championship and now with Carolina winning speculation as to how many of their underclassmen will go pro can begin. Such is college basketball.
Oh and I finally had a decent NCAA pool after years of having my sure pick teams lose over and over again.
March Madness has got to be one of the best sporting events in the world. Why? Its win or go home. No well we lost the first game but we regrouped to win our zone. Nope you snooze you lose, you mess up you're walking. Every game is do or die. It gets no better than that in sports.
Interesting side note to this win was that Mays was following in his father's footsteps as his dad won a championship with Indiana back in the 70s in a game in which he also scored 26 points. Pretty weird coincidence huh?
