Winner: USA vs. Canada Men's Hockey
Snub: Duke vs. Butler
The gold medal game between the USA and Canada was an overtime thriller and an instant classic. Sidney Crosby was the hero as he scored the game winning goal, sending Canada into a frenzy.
As good as that game was, it can’t be the “Best Game” because the USA lost. Just kidding.
But seriously, the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship Game was the best game of the year.
It was almost an exact replica of the great sports movie “Hoosiers." You had the small school from Indiana that no one really thought could win it all. And you had the powerhouse program that is a favorite to win the title each year.
The game went back and forth with both teams having chances to win. It came down to a final shot, but unlike in the movie, David was unable to beat Goliath.
