What single moment stands out to you the most from the 2005-06 season?
I have enjoyed watching the team members and the coaches enjoy the game! A class act and example of coach as teacher --

Tell about your experiences during the Kryptonite Kids' magical run through the tournament:
The most interesting thing was a trip to Chicago the day of the Final Four. This was an educators convention of 13,000 in a VERY big convention hall. I wore my shirt & GO Mason buttons and was stopped every few feet to hear people say how great it was that Mason was in the Final Fours. Then I got a lot of questions about GMU- and was glad my previous job had included working with admissions! I was able to answer whatever they asked! Newspapers also had lots of sories.
I watched teh game in the hotel bar with an assortment of people from all over teh country - ALL of them were rooting for MASON! I was veryproud of being an employee of Mason. We all are basking in the glory.

What do you think this moment means for George Mason University?
I think this is a permanent boost to the university in amny ways and I look forward to a great future !
