Story Text

What single moment stands out to you the most from the 2005-06 season?
The ball going around the rim and in to push the UConn game into overtime. That was heart-attack number five.

Tell about your experiences during the Kryptonite Kids' magical run through the tournament:
Wow! What a run it's been. And it ain't over yet!
I watched the UConn game from the third floor of the JC. Not only could I see the screen well but I could also see the reaction of all the Patriots watching the game with me. It was electifying!
Going around patriot circle ater the game was a real blast. I had all my windows painted with patriot pride, and since I had brought the glass marker with me, I proudly crossed out the Elite Eight and scrawled in 'FINAL FOUR'.
The funniest part was when I was halfway around Patriot circle and the girl driving behind me asked if I still had some paint. We both pulled over and she borrowed the paint marker to add some pride to her car.

What do you think this moment means for George Mason University?
I remember being told as a freshman that a degree from GMU would be worth more in four years that it at present. As an alum, I think those words have begun to ring true.
