What single moment stands out to you the most from the 2005-06 season?
Winning the UCONN game in overtime

Tell about your experiences during the Kryptonite Kids' magical run through the tournament:
My name is Charley Carter. Jordan Carter is my grandson. He gave me his Final Four cap which he autographed for me. Right after the final game I was in Ace Hardware here in Gary, Indiana with my hat on and the cashier said that he watched the game against UCONN and that he was cheering for George Mason to beat Florida. I was beaming with pride when I told him that Jordan was my grandson and that he was on that team! Now whenever I wear my Final Four cap I get asked about George Mason. What a good marketing tool.

What do you think this moment means for George Mason University?
George Mason is now a household word! Under the leadership of Coach L, I expect this team to do it again next year.
