It has been a month now since Gordon Hayward`s shot from half court was nearly banked in. Now that the excitement has worn off from the 2010 tournament I wanted to take a look back at the tournament and remember why this was the greatest tournament from start to finish in the history of college basketball. There may have been more upsets and bigger upsets in past tournaments. Also there may been more thrilling Final 4`s and championship games in the past. However I don`t think you can find a better tournament from start to finish. There were numerous thrilling finishes,plenty of upsets, and who can forget the show Jimmer Fredette put on against Florida.
One more thing about the tournament is that it will be hard to find one better day of the tournament than what was played on Thursday March 18th. Out of 16 games 9 games were either went to overtime or were decided by fewer than 5 points. 7 of the games were won by higher seeds and (2) Villanova a was pushed to the limits by (15) Robert Morris and (6)Tennessee just barely beat (11)San Diego State
