Ranking the Top 10 Stories of March Madness

March Madness is about the fascinating stories behind the players and teams involved in the event as much as it is about the action on the court.

Sometimes the stories start before the NCAA tournament begins and are enhanced by the team's success. Sometimes the stories grow out of the tournament. Sometimes they involve unlikely success. Almost all involve personal perseverance.

Although each person who watches the NCAA tournament has his or her favorite (which may or may not be listed here), we selected 10 such stories.

We narrowed our countdown of the top nine stories to teams and players involved in the Sweet 16. The 10th spot was saved for two teams not playing Thursday or Friday.
