March has become one of my fav months of the year due to the onslaught of hoops 24/7. And if Duke makes it through the Sweet Sixteen, I become a maniac.
For almost 15 years, I’ve made the yearly trek to see a game at Cameron Indoor Stadium and join the “crazies” for one of my fav nights of the year. And it never disappoints.
The month of March is a basketball junkie’s dream. And in the office bracket pool, my loyalty always shines through with Duke picked to win it all (regardless of the odds & everyone gunning to take us down a peg).
Since 1991 with the deadly combo of Hurley, Laettner and Hill….. seeing “the shot”, my allegiances have never wavered. Not even once. And four National Championships later, it is even that much more addictive.
My top 5 players to ever adorn the royal blue jersey (in this order): Hurley, Redick, Zion, J. Williams, G. Allen.
As soon as the schedules are announced in late summer, I inevitably spend an evening plugging all the matchups into my calendar and imagining the nets being cut down in April to “One Shining Moment” playing in the background!
