TOURNEY WATCH: 3/28/2010

Alas, all good things must come to an end.

The future looks very bright, though.

On a side note, anyone else happy for Huggs? I know some still harbor a strong dislike for the man, but like it or not, he set us in motion down this path.

At this point, I'm ready to let bygones be bygones.

He hasn't been to the Final Four since 1993 and West Virginia hasn't been since 1959. Imagine how those fans feel today. I'm envious.

It was inspirational to watch a West Virginia team that doesn't really have any stars just flat outplay John Calipari's hired guns. Maybe there is some justice in this universe, after all.

It also was uplifting to see Joe Mazzulla elevate his game to a near-superhuman level. I've been watching the kid off and on for several years, and I didn't know he had that in him. Isn't that what's great about March? John Wall might make millions, but Mazzulla was better than him Saturday night, and has a trophy and many memories to show for it.
