Story Text

What single moment stands out to you the most from the 2005-06 season?
So far? Folarin Campbell's fadeaway jumpshot at the end of the UConn game. I thought I was going to have a heart attack.

Tell about your experiences during the Kryptonite Kids' magical run through the tournament:
I've been tutoring the men's basketball team for about three semesters now. As someone who is part of their weekly schedule, I know what all other GMU athletes know--and that is that the GMU Men's Basketball team has a daily schedule that a West Point cadet wouldn't belive. There is hardly a moment in the day that they are not expected to be somewhere doing something--practice, weight lifting, study hall, tutoring, class...the list goes on. It takes dedication, hard work and perseverence to be a college athlete, and to see their hard work paying off this way is incredibly gratifying. Behind the Cinderella story is a LOT of work. These guys have an unbelieveable work ethic, and I'm proud to be associated with them.

What do you think this moment means for George Mason University?
I think we've only just started to see the impact this is having on the school.
