Many fans view college basketball as a dying game. Stars are gone within a year, two at the most. Players are unrecognizable to the average viewer. Dynasties are a thing of the past.
The NCAA tournament changes all of that. Maybe we don't have players like Patrick Ewing, who make a name for themselves in college, but we get to watch new players introduce themselves to the nation every year.
There was no shortage of great matchups, compelling games and star performances in 2012's version of March Madness.
With the tournament sadly behind us, it's time to take a look back at the greatest moments we just experienced for the past two and a half weeks.
As always, this is just one man's opinion. Everyone will disagree with something, and I encourage you to share your thoughts and favorite moments in the comments. I thoroughly enjoy sharing opinions. Enjoy the slideshow.
