College Basketball 2011: Season in Review

The college basketball season has officially ended, meaning it is time to look back on one of the most memorable years of hoops in recent memory.

The season started off with a bang, as un-ranked UConn won the Maui Invitational behind three outstanding performances by Kemba Walker. It didn't take long before Walker became a household name, but as the Huskies stumbled down the end of the regular season, few people imagined he would lead UConn to 11 straight wins while capturing the national championship.

But this season was about a lot more than just Walker and the Huskies.

It featured great dunks, ridiculously long three-point shots by a guy named Jimmer, numerous upsets, a few Cinderellas, and hundreds if not thousands of games that went right down to wire.

This article will highlight and award some of the best plays, games, coaches, players, tweets of the year, along with a few more interesting categories.

It is time to re-witness the 2011 college basketball season for one last time, and I promise you this will be a lot more enjoyable than "One Shining Moment."

Feel free to share your opinions, as I love to read comments responding to the article. All I ask of you is to not use my profile picture as an argument for me being biased of a certain player.
