Story Text

What single moment stands out to you the most from the 2005-06 season?
Well, when we won against UConn, it was pretty sweet. All i remember hearing people say when i asked them if they thought we would win is, "but UConn is really good"

Tell about your experiences during the Kryptonite Kids' magical run through the tournament:
I went to all the home games before the basketball team got big, when they were just another team in the CAA. I cheered at all their games and recognized all the players off the court. When we made it big, i just thought that they finally deserved recognition. I always thought our team was good, and now the entire nation would know it to. I just felt proud and i was happy that i was there from the beginning to this point.

What do you think this moment means for George Mason University?
Well, the obvious is that more people will want to come here, and more admissions means more national status. I just hope that next year brings in the same type of players, ones with integrety, dignity, strong character and a true love for the game of basketball.
