Maddening End to March Madness

March Madness was a success as usual. This year’s National Championship went to the North Carolina Tar Heels, who captured the crown a year after losing in the same title game.

Three fantastic weekends of college basketball came down to the final showdown between Gonzaga and the Heels, which was largely forgettable for numerous reasons. The nerves got the best of a lot of the stars throughout the game, translating to missed shots and turnovers, as well as periodical poor play in general.

The referees also must have felt the pressure. Fouls were out of hand. A majority of difference makers, such as Przemek Karnowski and Kennedy Meeks, dealt with four fouls down the stretch. The Zags entered the double bonus with over ten minutes to play. Seemingly countless free throws were attempted, and the percentage from the line was atrocious.

One game should not determine whether March Madness was a success or not, and in spite of the lackluster Championship, the annual tournament was as exciting this year as any, with intriguing story lines such as South Carolina’s Cinderella run the the Final Four fueling the madness.
