What single moment stands out to you the most from the 2005-06 season?
Will Thomas's fantastic finger rolls in the UConn game.

Tell about your experiences during the Kryptonite Kids' magical run through the tournament:
I was fortunate enough to go to both games in Verizon Center, one with my wife Jane and the other with my son Joel. The first game was amazing enough, but it was the second that took my breath away. Mason played like a team possessed. They just wouldn't be stopped, even as they fell behind, and gave up the lead in regulation. I saw six or seven games this season, and they played some great halves. But this was the only full game I saw where they really kept it together all the way through. The thing that may have been most memorable was not on the court. To see Mason play before a sympathetic crowd of almost 20,000 was incredible. When the final UConn shot banged off the rim and Mason had won, the scream of joy and relief, I'll absolutely never forget.

What do you think this moment means for George Mason University?
Time will tell.
