What single moment stands out to you the most from the 2005-06 season?
the gmu-uconn game- what a game!!!

Tell about your experiences during the Kryptonite Kids' magical run through the tournament:
Having floor seats at the Verizon Center for the GMU-UConn game- was pure heaven!
It was amazing to look up- way up into the stands- and see the sea of green and gold and to hear the true heartfelt school spirit.
Many of my friends and co-workers are not too familiar with Mason. In fact, my phone was blowing up from folks watching the game in awe. My brother even watched the game from Germany!
I just happened to have vacation lined up for the days surrounding the weekend of the Final Four, so I changed my travel destination to Indy!
I was also lucky enough to land lower level seats behind the basket at the RCA Dome in Indianopolis. Although that was our last game, it was a great run and it was nice meeting other GMU alums who made the trip to cheer the team on. It was also nice to experience the respect from fans from the other schools. Even they appreciated the 'Cinderella Team'.

What do you think this moment means for George Mason University?
George Mason is definately on the map now. Now, I don't think I have to explain anything about the school- finally! Hopefully nobody will get us confused with James Madison or George Washington anymore!!
