NCAA Fever heating up

by Dan Bilicki In: Basketball

With the number one and two ranked teams in the nation squaring off on Sunday in Columbus, one couldn’t help but get excited about the upcoming NCAA tournament this March. Phenom Greg Oden and his Ohio State Buckeyes slugged it out down to the wire against number-two Wisconsin and came out with a 49-48 win. The sheer, unabridged joy that these players demonstrate after a huge game like this one helps remind us that there is purity in the sport still; that players still have to play to eventually be paid. The Vince Carters of the world could learn something if they watched a good college game and remembered his days when he wasn’t getting paid for what he’s doing now. It may just warm that empty cavity in his chest.
