What single moment stands out to you the most from the 2005-06 season?
When Denham Brown's shot rimmed out and the place goes wild!!

Tell about your experiences during the Kryptonite Kids' magical run through the tournament:
I remember walking down the streets of Indy and all the fans from LSU was rooting for us to beat Florida. All the local fans were rooting for us too. Everytime I walked by someone they would wish me and Mason luck. It felt good, being the little guy playing in the Final Four among giants.

What do you think this moment means for George Mason University?
From now on when the tournament begins, all the analysts, especially Billy Packer and Jim Nantz, will ask which team will pull a "George Mason," a team on the bubble or a mid-major that can march through the brackets and end up in the Final Four like Mason did. Of course the answer to their question every year when it's present is, of course, GEORGE MASON!!!! This team set the standard for all the little guys out there.
