Kansas Jayhawks -- 2008 National Champions!
My alma mater won their third NCAA Men's Basketball championship tonight in a game that, honestly, wasn't nearly as exciting or good as the last time they won, when I was a senior. Still, KU coming back from a 9 point deficit with just over 2 minutes left in regulation -- and hitting the 3-pointer with a couple seconds left to send the game to overtime-- certainly helped me reach my target heart rate.
Kansas basketball is all about tradition, and I'm happy that the "old" rituals are the same as they were when I graduated:
They'll be "waving the wheat" in Lawrence tonight!
Update 0542 08 April: Here's a video of the shot that sent the game into overtime.
